6fps , imho is an important feature that this grip needs to do.

hmmm, looks like the Vertex GRIP does two(2) EL15 , and says it does the EL18 D4 battery too !

For me the two EL15 in the GRIP making it a total of three(3) EL15 total on the D800 is a HUGE plus feature. over the Nikon D800 GRIP. (cost aside)

Does this increase the FPS as in the Nikon grip? Just I thought it was the extra power that let them increase the FPS. Also, the grip can it take an EN-EL18 battery?

Haven't tried frame rate comparo yet.
Based on the design (as I understand it), there is no "extra power".

No...this particular grip only takes the EN-EL15.
