    On my Nikon D90 it guarantees power for long events or week long vacations where recharging is impossible or inconvenient. I don't carry my charger on weddings/events any more. The D-90 is a power miser anyway but this addition is a joy. I have done over a 1K shots in high resolution with plenty of reserve. Having the controls on the grip are convenient for portrait shots. Only minor complaint is the shutter release is not as tactile as on the D90 body. Just be careful when removing the D90 battery access door (read the D90 removal procedure or break it) and don't loose it. With two fully charged EN-El3's your are "the (wo)man". It does add a little bit more heft to the camera with the added weight of the extra battery but weight adds to stability when a tripod is impractical. The D90 recognizes the install and notes the battery levels of both cells and when one is exhausted it automatically cycles to battery #2. If you are a serious user, amateur or profesional, this is a must have.

    I purchased this product to give the D90 a bigger feel that might be better for my hands. I have not been pleased with it. I find that the way it screws into the bottom of the camera is annoying. The wheel has some play in it even when tight, no mechanical failures, just a bit disconcerning when shooting.

    I also do not like the way the handgrip I have attached to it; makes it very difficult to mount on a tripod for portrait shots.

    If you are just handholding, then I would say its fine. If you plan on doing a lot of tripod shots, don't go for it.

    I know that everyone has their own opinion, thought I would share mine. OH, I should mention that I am using the grip with a Hakuba Grip-LH.

      Comments about Nikon MB-D80 Multi-Power Battery Pack:

      I am thrilled with the MB-D80 Nikon battery grip. It allows much faster exposures especially when you need to shoot a boatload of shots in rapid sequence. It fits my Nikon D90 perfectly. B&H was much less expensive than Nikon was asking for their product. Shipment was fast as usual.

        Comments about Nikon MB-D80 Multi-Power Battery Pack:

        I use this grip/battery pack on my D90 which is the back up camera to my D600. I use the trio of Nikon 2.8 lenses and this grip is fantastic to better balance the weight of a larger lens. If you have larger hands, you will love it as well. The grip makes the D90 feel just like my D600 which also has a nearly identical Nikon grip/battery pack.

          I ordered the MB-D80 made by Nikon because I knew it would fit and work
          properly.( Even though it cost more ).It worked great with the EN-EL3e
          batteries and also with AA batteries.

            Overall the grip is great. Long battery life and a fits and feels great with the D90. I was concerned about weight however the grip does not really add much weight. Only issue is you cannot fully tighten the grip or else you will get a low battery alarm.

                Comments about Nikon MB-D80 Multi-Power Battery Pack:

                I purchased the battery pack because I have been in situations where I have ran out of battery power. Yes I have carried around a extra battery in my bag or pocket but it is nice to keep shooting. It seems you always run out of battery when you need it the most. I also like the additional area for holding the camera especially with long focal length lenses.

                  I ordered this thinking it would be a useful assist, and the build quality is OK, but I found that the combination of the D90 + loaded battery pack is much too cumbersome to carry on a regular basis, outweighing (for me at least) the added power available from 2x EN-EL3e's. I personally find it much more efficient to just carry a fully charged spare battery, and I do not have any trouble rotating the camera for vertical shots.

                  It's really grate that it holds two batteries or allows the user to use rechargeable batteries.

                            I was not sure about adding the Nikon Battery Pack on my newly acquired Nikon D90 but it is a welcome edition. I don't find it too heavy but I do find it comfortable. I have not done any extended shoots yet but I have all the confidence in the world that running low on battery power will not be concern.

                              Use the MB-D80 all the time. Never take it off. Balances the D90 with a short lens as well as a long telephoto. Enjoyed it so much that I bought a second for my backup D90.

                              OMG I wish I had purchased this battery pack when I purchased my Nikon D-90 3 years ago. It makes the camera feel more ballanced and easer to grip. And takes vertical shots with ease. I highly recomend this item. The ability to use regular batteries gives peace of mind that you will not be with out battery power.PS: Don't wait like I did get it ASAP

                                I bought this batter pack to use while shooting high school football games. It holds two batteries and has the primary and secondary dials. It sure helps when adjusting for the perfect setting quickly and easily.

                                Overall this is a great grip. In addition to giving you vertical controls, the ability to load up with two EN-EL3e batteries or a bunch of AA's makes this fantastic for traveling when you may not have reguular access to recharge. The plastic and rubber grip look similar to the D80/D90, but overall the quality feels just a bit less. For that reason I think this is a bit overpriced. I also own a 3rd party brand which cost about 50% of this grip which I bought for my other camera and that one, while feeling just slightly cheaper than the Nikon grip is probably the better value.

                                I have not had an issues with this grips performance or connections. It functions as advertised and I get the proper battery readings.

                                    I purchased this to replace the generic battery pack I purchased less than 6mo ago - this fits much better on the body - still a bit concerned at the durability of the closing mechanism (which is what broke on the generic one) but I think my battery life is longer with this one - and it's an overall win!

                                        Bought this mainly so that the extra battery would extend the amount of shooting time. When attached to my D90 the grip balances the body well when long telephoto lenses are attached.
