Morning from New Mexico...

Can the Canon battery grip I just purchased be charge in the camera like my r5 or do the batteries need to be removed?

Thank you... rick

Hi Rick,

Thanks for asking about charging batteries for your Canon 90D. I don't know if you purchased the original Canon BG-E14 battery grip for your 80D or one of the many 3rd party grips, but I believe the answer is the same.


In order to charge a battery for your 80D directly, or batteries that are inserted into a compatible grip for your EOS 80D, you must remove the battery(s) and use one of the chargers.

Fortunately, the 80D battery charger is very compact and very affordable to buy if you don't already have one. Additionally, the 80D, 80D chargers, and 80D battery grips take the full-size, LP-E6, the LP-E6N, and the LP-E6NH versions of batteries. There are plenty of 3rd party batteries and chargers that cost a fraction of the Canon branded battery and charger.

I find it very easy to have a 2nd battery on hand and just charge when I'm done a photo shoot. I actually have 4 LP-E6 type of batteries that fit the 3 Canon bodies I shoot with right now, my Canon R7, my 90D, and my 5D Mark III. Canon finally got smart and made its more recent camera batteries have the same compatibility.

Good luck with your 80D,
