Can You Charge A Canon EOS Rebel T6 Through USB?

If you’re wondering how to charge the Canon Rebel T6 (also known as the 1300D or KISS X80) with a USB then this is the post for you.

Unfortunately you cannot charge a Canon Rebel T6 through the USB port on the camera. 

This is because the USB port on the Canon Rebel T6 is only for data transfer and not for power transfer.

Luckily there are other ways to make sure your camera is well powered.

If you were looking for constant power for your Rebel T6 then this is still possible and we will discuss this later in this post.

If you want a Canon camera that charges through USB you should check out the Canon EOS M50 Mark II

The M50 Mark II is a newer mirrorless camera which is very popular and it has an APS-C sensor like the Canon Rebel T6.

How Can You Charge The Canon Rebel T6 Battery?

You can use the standard LP-E10 batteries and charge the batteries using the standard LC-E10 battery charger.
