Hi all,
I just purchased the Canon XTi, and the Opteka grip with additional batteries. There is no separate charger for the Opteka batteries (and I don't see any option to buy an Opteka battery charger). Do you just charge them on the regular XTi charger base? The canon material said not to charge 3rd party batteries on their charger, but has anyone actually ever had problems with them or having them mess up their canon charger and/or camera?

Thanks!

I use 3rd party batteries in my Canon charger with no problems.
