This is especially useful when taking advantage of the camera's Movie Mode, Live View Mode and other operating modes that use more power.

This product looks and performs exactly like it was made by Canon at a fraction of the price. I also have a Meike grip for my Canon 5D Mk2. Unlike another buyer's experience I found the color and finish of the grip exactly the same as the camera. Also includes a AA battery tray. Interestingly, on the 5D I forgot that I bought the knock off grip and I had assumed for months that I was using the Canon grip. Not until I looked at the bottom label on the grip did I remember that I had bought the knockoff.
The 6D grip works a little differently than the grips that I have used before (5D, 50D & Rebel) Instead of a door that the batteries slide into there is a tray that holds the batteries and the tray slides into the side of the grip. It even has a place inside the grip to store the old battery door.
I think anyone who buys the Meike grip will be happy they saved a couple of hundred bucks over the Canon grip.
Bought this for my 6D and it works like a charm. I love it! Some of the others said the color of the grip is slightly different than the body of the camera, well they must've changed it cuz my grip matched my camera color perfectly. I tested the grip with AA batteries and 2 Canon batteries, works perfect both ways. I was considering buying the official Canon grip, but for the price, I thought why not try this one out. I got absolutely no battery errors when testing this product. Best buy I've done in awhile. Thanks Meike.
I bought this for my new Canon 6D. I have an original Canon brand grip for my 40D. The Meike grip is every bit as good as the Canon grips I've used before. The battery tray is solid, the extra tray for AA batteries looks well made even though I've never used it. the controls work and feel the same at the original.
