    Vello BG-N13 reviews

    BG-N13 Battery Grip for Nikon D5300 is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 33.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not so good... I used this battery grip for maybe a year and one of the plastic snaps that hold the batteries in the unit broke rendering that half of the compartment useless. The grip has a cheap feel to it, the battery door doesn't snap into place and is always a little loose. The capper is today when I was examining the grip and when I put the battery in the camera said it was the wrong kind of battery and would not work in the camera. I took the grip off adn put a battery in the camera and it's fine. B&H generally has quality products and I purchase photography gear there often. However, due to my expetience I wouldn't recommend purchasing this grip.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap, porrly built, broke after third use. I finally got to use this on a tripod. After the 3rd time mounting it the threaded metal tab on the bottom pulled out. I had to disassemble the grip and use a 2 part epoxy to permanently fix it into its place. Also the stutter button only works once in a while. It will not press in certain positions, I have to spin the button to a particular position in order for it to operate. This is the second grip I have had problems with. First time the shutter button was DOA. I was told that Vello would be contacting me after I had issues with my first grip to discuss the issue. They never did. They already had my hard earned money.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from The button worked for about 10 Minutes Let me start off by saying the battery portion works great. I filled it with 2 Wasabi batteries off @ so it totals in 3000 mAh instead of (I think) 1280 mAh. Lasts forever. It's great.I also got it to add some bulk to the 5300 body, which is super tiny (I have massive hands). It does this okay, but it's not super ergonomic, even for someone with medium or small hands.But one thing I was looking forward to was not straining my arm when shooting portrait, so I could use that extra shutter button. It worked great the first time. The next time however, it wasn't working. I rechecked the cable and sure enough, the port on the pack was busted. It wasn't just a little cable I could replace, the whole product is broken.I'll be trying to return it or get it replaced when I have time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made for the Nikon D5300 A lot of battery grips are made for the nikon d5000 series but because the body changes slightly it doesn't fit perfectly. This battery grip doubles your battery life and I recommend getting the original Nikon battery for maximum performance. It does make the camera a bit bigger if your not used to it. However it does add more space to grip the body for people with larger hands. Also adds stability for taking pictures and the ability to rotate the camera and take a picture in portrait mode with an extra button on the battery grip. Overall I'm happy with this purchase cause it was designed to fit my nikon d5300.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from bigger grip I ordered the Vello battery grip for my Nikon d5300 and it arrived, free shipping in the evening after 3 days. I like that. The grip is light, fits tight, works really well. I have big hands so it really helps holding the camera, and it balances the camera when you have a heavy flash on top. When shooting vertical there is no control other than the shutter release button however. The supplied cord to allow the shutter release to work is a little exposed, plugging into the side of the camera linking the grip, so you have to watch it, but it works well. Thanks B&H for being a very reliable, efficient source.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I've had this for a few weeks and keep it constantly on my camera. Having the extra battery power on hand is great on extended hikes, and I like the extra room it gives my fingers. I haven't shot without it since I bought it. The construction is pretty solid, but definitely not up to par with what a Nikon battery grip would be (unfortunately Nikon doesn't make one for the this is about as good as it gets.) It's all plastic, but I wouldn't call it cheap. It has the same speckled finish that the D5300 has and fits flush on all edges, so it looks pretty good on the camera. The secondary shutter release button feels pretty solid as well. My only gripe is that the battery door can sometimes come loose and open. It has only happened to me once since I've had it, but I can see the door beginning to open sometimes. I just keep an eye on it and push it back closed if it starts to do that. A big plus is that it has a compartment to hold the D5300 battery door that you remove. I would most definitely lose it if that feature wasn't in place, I have also noticed that many other grips for this camera do NOT have this, so take that into consideration. The included cable for the secondary shutter button is of good quality and does not really get in the way of shooting. It is not required for use of the battery pack, but is required if you want to use the second shutter release. This is a design of the D5300 and this is the only way that it can function in this way. I have made a short video review with a 360 degree view of it on the camera if you search YouTube for Vello battery grip for Nikon D5300

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit for D5300 Product is 100% as described and works well with my D5300, I'm India now ane here its almost impossilbe to get battery grip for D5300 (sellers sell same grip for D5100, D5200 and D5300. D5300 is few mm smaller than previous model) So, I order it from B&H this one. Happy to buy this, Fits perfectly, feels like its part of camera and quality is good (except battery door feels little loose when close, but not a problem) so, anybody looking for perfect grip for D5300, just go for it.. 5 stars because it works well and I got $ discount (I order it before black friday)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My second Vello Battery Grip! This Vello BG-N13 is awesome! This is my second battery grip from this company and I am very happy. I had originally bought the BG-N6 for my Nikon D5200. But after upgrading to the Nikon D5300, I had to change to the BG-N13. Although I had to purchase a new battery grip, I would do it over again because I love this company and the quality of the items are outstanding! I would definitely recommend the BG-N13 and Vello in general to any DSLR user!
