Re: Pixex-Vertax, two(2) EL15 OR EL18 or 8 AAA


It all depends on your expectations in relation to your usage. If I understand the OP correctly, he buys a grip more or less for cosmetic reasons (the cool factor) While I and maybe you buy it out of functionality and practical usage.

You can not expect that a 60 dollar grip is of a similar construction than the original one, that does not mean that it has to be bad. And if you do not own an original one, what to miss in the first place?

You get what you pay for!!, there is a report re the Melkie grip on another forum by a well respected poster who says although it performs to his satisfaction the quality certainly is not up to the Nikon version, the plastic or whatever it is constructed from bends under certain circumstances and other differences.
