If there’s one annoying aspect of cameras, particularly mirrorless cameras that are constantly powering an LCD or EVF the whole time they’re turned on, it’s battery life. There are grips you can get for some cameras to let you take advantage of multiple batteries or you can go with external power, but not all cameras.
Frustrated with battery life, a tinkerer going by the name “funkster“, decided that the most practical option for his Canon EOS M mirrorless camera was to build his own grip. It lets him use a pair of commonly available 18650 batteries and he even made them hot-swappable so that he can replace one of the batteries when it gets low without the camera losing power.
