Sony Vertical Battery Grip for a7 II, a7R II, and a7S II
Key Features
  • For a7 II, a7R II, and a7S II Cameras
  • Comfort and Control in Vertical Position
  • Holds Two NP-FW50 Batteries
  • Extends Shooting Time
This Vertical Battery Grip from Sony allows for long-term, comfortable shooting in the vertical orientation with your Alpha a7 II, a7R II, or a7S II camera. It holds two NP-FW50 batteries, which are available separately, to approximately double your shooting time. The grip uses a battery with lower power first, then automatically switches to the one with greater power when the first runs out. Remaining battery power is displayed as a percentage on your camera's LCD monitor. Additionally, batteries can be replaced without turning off the camera.

I heard it displays both battery %. Does it drain 1 battery at a time or both? If 1 at a time does it automatically start draining the other battery once the first is finished?
