D850 Grip/ charger/battery arrived -why is BT-A10 needed?

The grip package arrived  and cannot understand what this adapter BT-A10 is doing

I can mount it on the double charger but when I try to mount the battery on top of it as in Figure B in the leaflet, the battery won't mount.

The battery pins are on the left-hand side and the adaptor has the pins on the right

Can anyone explain what happens?


If I mount the battery directly into the charger without BT-A10 it goes smoothly (pins are aligned)

I trey to follow the instructions, pins  don't align
