A few comments seem to imply that the Nikon grip has the protrusion that goes into the battery compartment...NOT according to Nikon USA's site:

I didn't say that, as I was talking about Canon's, which makes it easier to remove both batteries, versus Nikon, which requires removal of the grip to get to the second battery.

As well, are we 100% sure the Nikon grip is magnesium and the after-market grips are only plastic? Seems like we are getting a lot of comparisons from people who have seen only one.

Don't know, don't care as I bought the Nikon grip.
