The XT series and XS series uses different battery, and have different battery grips. You may want to do a search on amazon for jenis battery grips for the XSi and XS. The price went back up after the holidays

I was not looking for a battery grip. I was just pointing their error. They put the brand as "Cabon" instead of "Canon".

I notice the flub by walmart on their after market battery grip.

Thought you thinking the XT and XS would use the same grip. That is a pretty nice price if they have a XS series grip for that price. I have a canon one, and from what I have seen, the after market ones are pretty much the same. If you have power problem, sometime the aftermarket ones skimp on solder and the connect comes loose. Just open up the part with the little screws and solder the connector down. It is really not worth buying the 60% more expensive canon one.
