DSTE D800 Grip, the BEST

DSTE D800 GRIP , the BEST?
Is there More compairs vs the Pixel grip?

Strange to me there is not more talk about this DSTE D800 grip. vs the Pixel grip


1) When looking at the picture, it looks like it has a Metal PIN , And has the same grove in the grip as the Nikon original? tripod plate compatability?

2) Does 8 AA Batteries AND the D4 battery, well maybe not, BUT it's 3900mAh which is almost double the D4 battery ??? ... That would be a feature no other grip can claim.
But, that knock off large battery might be good enough.

Am I the only one that wants MORE battery power than I had on the D700/D3 not less!

3) More importantly ... Does the dials and buttons have a "Clicky" feel ?

If this is improved over the Pixel , How can this not be the best alt D800 grip out there.

4) Does it screw on the D800 Solid/tight ?

5) No battery drain when not in use?

6) Battery life feedback on D800 OK?

7) at this point the 6fps in DX is probably a given.

Thank you for the Feedback,
