Just wondering here. I have an 80D, for which I just picked up a BG-E14 grip. I know Eneloop batteries are lower (1.2V) voltage than alkaline (1.5). The Eneloops seem to work OK in the grip. Is it OK to use them in the grip? Any comments on battery life? I've got 24 AA Eneloops, I feel like I may as well use them. Is there any downside?

Worrying about low voltage damaging the camera is like worrying about low light levels hurting the sensor.

Ok, thanks. I'm just trying to avoid buying more LP-E6 units right now. I have 4, but two are on their last legs; I've been using them (Wasabis) since I first got my 6D.

Can't comment on the 80D However, with my 7D2 and BG-E16 grip my old (1900 Mah) Eneloops are my preferred choice. They last far longer than a single Canon OEM LP-E6N or a pair of good non OEM packs.

Certainly my 6 year old Eneloops hold significantly more charge than Sanyo state but, even allowing for that, they perform above expectations - VERY good batteries, use them! Now the 2500 Mah Eneloops?????


Life is for living, cameras are to capture it (one day I will learn how!).
