Asked by: Emilio
We're afraid not. This battery grip is not compatible with the A6400. At this time the best option to use multiple batteries with the A6400 is the Sony NPA-MQZ1K Multi Battery Adapter Kit, B&H # SONPAMQZ1K. https://bhpho.to/2rhHbyn

question

When I have two batteries in the grip the LCD shows both a 1 and a 2 for batteries. But only the 1 is lighted showing the percent of charge on that battery. How do I select 2 to see the charge on that second battery?
Asked by: Joseph
This is a 3rd party solution so complete integration with the camera is not possible. If you wish to read the battery strength of the 2nd battery, please swap 1 and 2. This is not ideal but it is a usable workaround.
