【When traveling, want to charge some batteries at the same time? 】

Hello, this is ENZZO. First let me tell you. “Don’t worry. I’m working on the body suit and the grip for the RX1R2.”(At very slow pace, though.) -RX1R2 is a huge battery consumption monster!

The Grip for the RX1RII Development Report #4
