Re: Anybody receive new aftermarket D800 Battery Pack Grip yet ?
In reply to Power2g, Jul 30, 2012

I just got my Meike D800 Grip (plastic pin), I'm also having issue with the AA battery pack. I tried with two different sets of fairly new batteries and when I attach it to the camera I get a flashing battery icon. With the EN-EL15 it works fine, as long I dont remove the tray and power up the camera. If I do, it shows me a flashing battery icon again and then I need to remove the grip and reattach it to recognize it. Weird, Im use to the grip on my D300, I never experience this before, since I was able to change (original grip) batteries mid-shoot without removing the grip.

Or is there something I'm missing, other than chalking it up to buying a knock off version, that doesn't work 100%.
