question

I am trying to charge the batteries in the Vello using an Anker battery attached to the A7rii USB port. This worked when charging the battery in the camera battery bay but it does not seem to work when charging the battery(ies) in the Vello. Other people's experiences?
Asked by: Michael
I have only charges the batteries by taking them out of the battery grip and charged them in a wall charger. I have never tried to charge batteries using the method asked about.

question

Does this grip work with the 7D MKII?
Asked by: Dave
The Vello BG-C4 Battery Grip for Canon EOS 7D will not be compatible with the Canon EOS 7D Mark II. The only model compatible is the Canon BG-E16 Battery Grip for EOS 7D Mark II. There might be a Vello Version soon. As of now it's just the Canon model.
