Having the vertical grip allows me to shoot from a much more comfortable and much more stable position - and gives me more control over larger lenses. The BG-E2N is invaluable for long sessions of vertical use. It will function fine with one battery as well. The original battery door is easily removable and the BG-E2N plugs in. The BG-E2N provides its own tripod adapter threads - this functionality is not lost.

Obviously, there are times that arise when you may not want something this bulky attached. For those times, I simply remove the grip and go on with my shooting. The BG-E2N mounts to the bottom of the camera, with the protruding adapter you see on the left in the picture above being inserted into the battery compartment of the camera.
The door to the battery compartment actually removes to facilitate the use of the grip. Once mounted, you get the ability to shoot with your camera vertically and your right hand set more naturally along the right side of the camera. This is thanks to the shutter release button on the grip seen in the bottom left of the above image.
The AF point selection comes in rather handy for me, as I almost always select a different AF point when I flip to vertical shooting.
