    I hesitated for days to make my decision about the battery grip for my Canon T3i....I was worried that by paying less then half the price of the Canon name brand I would not recieve a quality product. I was wrong. This battery grip is superb; the packaging was excellent. The grip itself looks and feels solid - it's not a cheesy plasticky looking flimsy grip. It matched my camera exactly in color and appearance and coating. Speaking of the coating on the grip - it is not just a glued strip of rubber, it is part of the equipment and cannot peel off. It worked from the moment I installed it. I love the way it looks, feels and operates, and the shutter position for taking portrait oriented pictures is wonderful. Go for it, you won't be sorry.

    ***UPDATED JUNE 19, 2012***

    I'm really pleased with this product. I bought it to use with the Canon EOS Rebel T3i 18 MP CMOS APS-C Sensor DIGIC 4 Image Processor Full-HD Movie Mode Digital SLR Camera with 3.0-Inch Clear View Vari-Angle LCD and EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens and just got the Canon EOS REBEL T4i 18.0 MP CMOS Digital Camera with 3-inch Touchscreen and Full HD Movie Mode (Body Only). I've used it with both camera bodies, and the Battery Grip works fine on both cameras.

    Another thing I like is that the Battery Grip works great with both AA batteries as well as with camera-specific batteries

    I purchased it because I wanted additional power, as well as additional ways to power my Canon T3i. This product does both. It accepts 2 of the types of batteries that are designed for the Canon (I'm using the one that came with my camera along with Photive Original LP-E8 Ultra High Capacity Li-ion Battery For Canon T2i and T3i (Canon LP-E8 Replacement), as well as standard AA batteries (I'm using lithiumEnergizer L91BP-8 Lithium AA Photo Battery (8-Pack)).

    One of the things I think is really cool about this product is that there is a little slot to keep the Canon battery hatch, which you have to remove to use this grip (or any grip). Perhaps that hatch holder is standard on the Canon OEM grip, and this manufacturer is simply copying it, but the fact they did include shows their attention to detail. Another benefit of a grip is that it adds a degree of protection to part of the camera.

    I cant begin to recall the number of times this device has saved me when on prolonged video and photography shoots. I use a canon rebel t4i and this grip fits it like a glove. the added AA adapter may be your least used feature, however in a pinch AAs are far easier to come by than camera batteries. I use this device with a pair of OEM batteries that i found on Amazon, bringing my total batteries to four. the grips button features are excellent when framing portrait shots and it is comfortable and adds stabalizing weight to the camera. it also fits in my camera bag no problem. definitely one of my most used devices by far!

    Received this battery grip today. Opened the box installed it onto the camera, inserted batteries and the batteries worked the camera. The only important thing is I turned the battery grip on with the on off switch and it did absolutely nothing. Non of the buttons functioned. tried one battery, two batteries, two different batteries and still nothing. have to send it back for refund. I leave on vacation next week and wanted this to take with us. Very disappointed.

    Update: returned defective one and ordered another on because of the high ratings it has received. The new one came in promptly on July 13, one day ahead of delivery date. The replacement grip works great. Good feel, and looks good on my t3i. My refund on the first one I returned was promptly put back in my account.
    I guess the old saying one bad apple doesn't spoil the whole barrel holds true here.

    Very impressed with this grip considering the price. Build quality is not up to Canon's but is very high. The grip feels sturdy and well made, there are little things that indicate its a knock-off vs canon item, the little catch that opens the battery tray, and the feel of the rotation switch for example. It comes with battery trays for both dual LP-E8's and AA's, I'm using the Photive Original LP-E8's of which I am also very happy. The battery grip is weighty, and gives a nice balance to the T3i. One of the benefits to the battery grip is that it encourages more vertical vs horizontal shots. The extra battery capacity is great for star/milkyway photography with extended exposure times. 100% recommend this item. I've had it for a few months now and its a permanent addition to my camera.

    I must say that in all this grip is great for the price. It feels great in your hand, balances the camera nicely and generally gives the camera a better feel. All the functions works well with the exception of the shutter wheel which doesn't work at all. Maybe I got a defective one and was looking for Photive's website to see if there is a fix or a work around to this problem but I couldn't find it.

    This little malfunction may result in me getting a new battery grip and casting this one to the side since it is a little cumbersome to reach the wheel on the camera in portrait position and sort of defeats the purpose of a grip in the first place.
