BG-N15
BATTERY GRIP
Designed for the Nikon
D750 DSLR Camera
Introduction
Thank you for choosing Vello and congratulations on
your new BG-N15 battery grip purchase. Enjoy the many
benefits that a battery grip offers, such as extended
shooting time and more control and comfort when
shooting in a vertical (portrait) orientation.
The Vello BG-N15 is compatible with the Nikon
D750 DSLR camera. The BG-N15 accepts one Nikon
EN-EL15 rechargeable battery, in addition to the camera’s
internal battery. Six AA batteries (alkaline, Ni-MH or
lithium) can be used instead for added convenience. The
BG-N15 is equipped with an alternate shutter-release
button, AE-L/AF-L button, multi selector, and main and
sub-command dials for shooting in a vertical position.

Please read through this entire manual before using
the BG-N15 battery grip.
If you notice smoke, noise, or an unusual smell from
the battery pack, discontinue use immediately.
Remove the batteries and contact Vello Customer
Service.
7.
The BG-N15 does not have a power switch. Instead,
use the camera power switch to turn the power on
or off.
2. Use
only with batteries and battery holders
recommended in this manual. The BG-N15 cannot
be used with other batteries or battery holders.
3.
When the BG-N15 is not attached to the camera,
cover the power terminal with the contact cap. This
prevents electrical shorts caused by metal coming
into contact with the power terminals.
4. When the battery holder is removed from the
grip, remove the batteries or place the holder in
a container to prevent electrical shorts caused by
contact with other metal objects.
5.
The memory card access lamp may glow temporarily
when the BG-N15 is mounted or removed from the
camera. This is part of the normal operation.

10.I n cold temperatures, batteries can discharge
at a faster rate. Warming up a cold battery can
recover some of its lost charge and help improve
its performance.

compatible devices specified in this manual.

and cool place.
