I just bought a BG-E3 grip for my Rebel XTi....

Since this has additional battery capacity, and I purchased 820mh battery packs for it.... will it improve my Internal Flash Recycles times?

It might increase the flash recycle time of the built-in flash. If one battery is low and the flash fires the battery might not be able to handle the load of the flash recharging. Having the extra battery could help - note that, I said "could" because I don't really know. Just thinking out loud.

But in normal usage, I don't believe it will help. You'll get more flashes becuase you've got more available power. But they won't occure any faster most of the time.

No it won't make it any faster than a "fresh battery" cycle time, but it will help it from getting longer for longer due to battery drain than a single battery.
