I must admit, mine came with 2 batteries but they don't last an awful long time. I thought it might just be a faulty connection or something as they ran out within about 100 shots so I put my Canon battery in and it lasted a lot longer, so I am thinking it's the batteries and not the grip. I think I might go for some Hahnel batteries available at Jessops to see how they go or does anybody have any recommendations???
As Donoreo has already said look for clone batteries that have a higher MAH rating eg something like 2100Mah
