Vello BG-N16 overview

  • 1Description

The BG-N16 Battery Grip for Nikon D5500 & D5600 from Vello is designed specifically for the Nikon D5500 or D5600 DSLR camera and accepts one or two EN-EL14 or EN-EL14A batteries (D5600 only compatible with newer EN-EL14A batteries, see note). With two batteries installed, your shooting time is effectively doubled. More so, when one battery is drained, it can be removed and recharged while you continue shooting with the other battery. An on/off switch has also been added to the BG-N16 to disable the grip's built-in vertical shutter release button, which prevents users from accidentally triggering the shutter when photographing in the landscape orientation.

The design of a battery grip offers a comfortable and secure way in which to hold your DSLR, especially in the vertical position. The BG-N16 comes with an alternate shutter release button to facilitate shooting when held vertically. In addition, it is designed with an anti-slip rubber grip to further improve handling, a tripod socket to mount your camera directly to a tripod, and a holder for the camera's battery door so as not to lose it when the battery grip is installed.

The included shutter release cable connects from the socket on the battery grip to the remote release port on the camera body and transmits the shutter release signal from battery grip to the camera.

Note: When using the BG-N16 in combination with the D5600, please make sure to use a battery compatible with the D5600, i.e. Nikon EN-EL14A or Watson EN-EL14A V2.

Holds up to two EN-EL14 or EN-EL14A batteries, doubling the battery life for the Nikon D5500 & D5600.
Provides comfortable and secure handling when shooting in the vertical position, including a secondary shutter release button.
Features anti-slip rubber gripping and a securely locking battery chamber door.
Contains a camera battery door holder to store the camera's battery chamber door when the grip is mounted.

    Vello BG-N16 reviews

    BG-N16 Battery Grip for Nikon D5500 & D5600 is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from It works but it's not great? It works as advertised but it's rather cumbersome ? not as good as the battery grip they make for my D750. While it does the job, there's 3 deal breakers for me that make this useless. 1. Short Shutter Release Cable: partially gets in the way of the articulated screen. 2. The grip doesn't allow me to change my Shutter Speed or Aperture while composing in the Vertical Position (which is why I bought this grip). 3. It doesn't allow for back-button focusing.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from One minor flaw, otherwise indispensable This product gives a more substantial gripping surface to my Nikon D5500, as well as the ability to run dual batteries. Minor quibble; when the secondary shutter release signal cord/cable is connected between the unit and the port on the camera, it interferes with the swivel touch screen.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit and functionality Wanted an original Nikon D5500 battery grip but they don't make one (why not?). So... this and another (cheaper, less well reviewed) 3rd-party model were considered. The Vello grip is solid, fits well, connects securely, and is nicely molded to the shape of the camera base. Shutter trigger is nice, just a pity the on/off switch is positioned separately. Overall have used this grip for a couple of weeks. Batteries are secure and it feels solid and reliable. Can recommend to other D5500 users.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worked for a while, then quit working. I received the BG-N16, and my D5600 reported that the batteries were not the proper ones for the camera. Both the batteries being used were fully changed, and each worked in the camera without the charge. Also, if I loaded either one of the batteries into the charger alone, it worked. Sent it back for a replacement. Put in my batteries,both fully charged. The replacement worked until the camera reported batteries down to about half. I powered the camera off because I was not going to use it for a while, about 45 minutes. When powered back on, the camera started reporting that the batteries were not the right type. I removed the batteries and they work fine in the camera. The unit is just not reliable in the D5600.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Compatibilidad Este producto dice que es compatible con Nikon D5600 pero la verdad no es compatible para nada, lo venden anunciando que es compatible para poder vernder y no regresar el dinero.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality Great quality and design. Fits my hand and is comfortable. I really like the battery door latch which it really secures the batteries. When attached to the camera, you might have a problem with the external cable when opening the the rear touch screen. I have found that if you just rotate the 90 degree connector on the cable, you will be able to fully open the screen.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly What I Expected! The Battery Grip is exactly what I've expected. I've used it 3x's already and I have yet to have to charge the batteries. The grip is perfect, sits flush in my hand, and adds a little weight to the camera; which I like.
