Good day. I have recently purchased a Meike Battery Grip for my A6500 and I am quite pleases with it except for 1 thing. If I unplug the small cable from the usb port and connect to the computer I can't download the images. At the moment I am removing the grip, taking the sd card to a reader and then reversing the process. I am a bit wary of doing this regularly with a plastic grip because I think eventually something is going to go wrong. Is it just my setup or is this the normal thing. What is everyone else doing?

I have the Vello battery grip for my A6500 and I think it’s similar to your Meike. I do the same thing like you in removing the grip to take out the SD card. I don’t think there’s any other way to download the images. Maybe another person can enlighten us.

BTW, I like the battery grip from an ergonomic standpoint particularly in shooting portraits with heavy and big lenses. It’s just a hassle that it’s still somewhat dependent on the charge of the battery in the A6500.
