USB Charging of E-M1iii with HLD-9 attached (it works)
6

I discovered that you indeed can charge the internal battery of the E-M1iii via USB without removing the HLD-9 grip and taking the E-M1iii battery out. All you have to do is take the battery out of the HLD-9 and then USB charging will work.

If you leave both batteries in, then USB charging doesn't work on the E-M1iii.

I used to be annoyed that I had to take my grip off to charge the internal battery.

It's really better this way (only talking out the grip battery) since now I can charge both batteries at once, one in the external charger and one using USB and the camera as a second charger.

Now if only they would make an HLD-10 with a charging circuit that can charge both batteries at once using the AC adapter like the E-M1X can do.  9V@5A would charge the batteries pretty fast.
