DSTE battery in the D800 battery grip

I have never seen a single complaint here about DSTE batteries in the OEM battery grip for D800.

The battery is flopping inside before completely engaged so it is difficult to insert because battery body is much smaller than the opening.

I found solution for this: I use a piece of foam tape on the side of the battery where contacts are covered with a piece of wide electrical tape. It adds thickness to the battery and battery slides in much easier.

Anyone has better experience or other ideas?
