The MB-D15 Multi-Power Battery Pack for D7100 from Nikon is a battery grip designed for use specifically with the Nikon D7100 digital SLR camera, and accepts one EN-EL15 battery. With one battery in the MB-D15 and one in the D7100, your shooting time is effectively doubled. Moreover, when one battery is drained, it can be removed and recharged while you continue shooting with the other battery. In addition, the MB-D15 can utilize 6 AA batteries and comes with the MS-D14 AA Battery Holder that slides into the battery grip. It can also be powered by the optional EH-5b AC Adapter (with EP-5B Power Connector).

The design of a battery grip offers a comfortable and secure way in which to hold your DSLR, especially in the vertical position. And the MB-D15 features an alternate shutter release button, AE/AF lock button, multi-selector, and dual command dials to facilitate shooting when held vertically. The MB-D15 is constructed with anti-slip rubber grip to further improve handling, a tripod socket to mount your camera directly to a tripod and employs magnesium alloy equivalent to that in the D7100 body to achieve superior dust-prevention and weather-resistant performance.

    I can only say great things about it. It just gives me comfort and balanced while I shoot anything. It provides me perfect stability and rigidity which allows me to focus comfortably and eliminate the shaking of my hands-achieves a excellent handheld grip! The best part when u can switch the compartment to AA Batteries. Good for travelling to the beach, desert, the mountains, when your rechargeable Li-ion battery ran out of power.And AA batteries are cheaper to use and economical and still takes good pictures. [*]

    I tried this out when my friend bought it and really wanted to like it. I ended up not...The grip feels solid and very comfy to use, and the controls add a lot of functionality..especially for vertical shots. And of course, having a backup battery ready to go is a no-brainer.Now, for the missing two stars in my rating:1) There's only room for ONE battery in here...wat??-To be fair, the MB-D10 holder that I used with my previous D300 only held on as well, but it could hold the higher capacity EL4a battery (I had the optional "chamber", which was almost like having two batteries...2) If the D15 battery dies, I can keep shooting with the in-camera battery. But, since I can't put upgraded batteries in here, and I have to take out and recharge the one in the D15 anyway...where is the real benefit when it comes to the "extra battery"? When I shoot, I always keep spares handy, and swap out/recharge when I get to about 50/60%. I don't shoot the Winter Olympics...so it's not like I don't have a minute to do so during the event.Plus, I'm not fiddling around with mounting screws..so it's easier/faster to just swap out batteries than to use this grip.Again, good concept, and not so bad implementation. But compared to the MB-D10 design, this one falls short of the mark in just the right (or wrong...) places.

      I have a medium to large hand and this battery pack makes the d7100 a perfect fit. It also makes shooting vertical a breeze, nice grip and shutter button right on top.Worth every penny.

        So I bought this battery pack along with a new Nikon D7100 camera for use in high school and other sports photography I do. This is a great component to add if you need that shutter to hum when capturing action events. My second MB Battery Pack and have always been happy with the quality and performance. This one is no exception.

            I by a camera body and a battery grip, put it on the first day, and not take it off until I sell the body. A camera feels strange with out the battery grip. I shoot travel, landscape, drag racing, and shooting sports.I like that I rarely have to switch batteries, the camera feels more solid.The best feature is when I shoot vertical, I have all the controls in the perfect place. The down side as it doesn't lock on as well as as the pack for my D300's.i

                    This was a snap to put on, I attached it to my D7100 in 2 minutes. I've had third party battery packs that were difficult,and poorly fitted but this was a flawless fit. Works great and the switch from Lithium ion battery to standard battery or the back-up lithium ion battery has worked great, the two times I've had to use it. The side shutter switch is a plus when you are shooing in portrait position, it eliminates the fumbling.

                    I'm writing this review on the Nikon MB- D15 multi power battery pack for the D 7100 because it is a great product, I have a large hands and the addition of this battery grip makes the camera so much easier to handle.
                    Purchased a third-party battery grip for my Nikon D 3200 and you get cheap plastic, but with the purchase of the OE from Nikon the battery grip is made from the same materials as the camerawith the magnesium body makes handling superb, it cost more but it's worth more.
                    I highly recommend the original equipment from Nikon battery pack for anyone thinking of purchasing the grip, and also recommend that you purchase this product from B&H Photo and audio because they have the best price.

                      This grip is made from magnesium alloy and is weather sealed, just like the camera, which makes this exceedingly more expensive that the plastic aftermarket options which cost a fraction of the price.

                      You get what you pay for. I don't have to worry about a loose connection or frying out the electronics in my camera. Buttons are firm and the grip feels good in my hands.

                      If you can get over the price tag, this is a great grip.

                        Good addition for my D7100. Good build quality. Used it at a wedding last weekend and like the additional shot capability. The second set of controls is very nice for shooting portrait. The only drawback so far, and not due to the grip itself, is that I use a Black Rapid strap and with the connector mounted in the tripod socket, shooting vertical is somewhat uncomfortable and awkward. In my opinion, it's a little overpriced, but reading reviews of 3rd party grips this one is the better value.

                          Comments about Nikon MB-D15 Multi Power Battery Pack for D7100:

                          As the D7100 is a very light camera, I found I was having a problem holding the D7100 steady with my 2.8/80-200 lens attached, which has no VR, at slower shutter speeds.
                          I have always found that the pro level cameras from Nikon, film and digital, were easier to hold steady due to their increased weight.
                          With the addition of the power pack, this 'problem' improved.
                          At some point I'll be using an old 2.8/300 on the D7100, so I expect the power pack to help when using this lens.
                          In addition there is the added advantage of the additional battery life with the power pack attached. I'm getting about 4-5days from the main battery, so in theory it should extend usage to about 8-9 days, without having to charge a battery.
                          This battery pack fits a lot better than the equivalent one for the the D7000 I had.

                            Buy Nikon not after market. I tried Vello and returned it for the Nikon. Much better fit and quality.

                              After reading reviews of many non-Nikon battery grips, I came to the conclusion that for fit, finish and durability I would be well advised to select the Nikon product. Having received it, put it in service, and being very satisfied how well it fits the camera and functions, I am glad I went for the original instead of a knockoff. I have great confidence in this product, which works perfectly with my D7100

                                I bought this after reading numerous reviews about Nikon and knockoff battery grips for the D7100. After lots of indecision, I went ahead with the Nikon product and I am very glad I did. This grip fits tight, works great with the camera, and provides extra stability both in landscape and portrait positions. I have large hands, and even in landscape, the side of my hand fits snugly against the grip. I recognize the difference in cost, but I want a grip that lasts and works seamlessly with the camera. This is what I got with the Nikon product.

                                  Comments about Nikon MB-D15 Multi Power Battery Pack for D7100:

                                  I retired my first off-brand battery base after less than 6 months of use when the internal connector refused to make reliable contact. I should have purchased the Nikon version in the first place.

                                  This unit lives on my camera most of the time. I do lots of casual photography and I also do many HDR bracketed exposures using a tripod. I am convinced that using the off-brand unit with the tripod is what killed it (the weight of the lens creating a cantilever). This Nikon unit is significantly more robust than what I had. It's dual thumb wheels (others have only one) also make it easier to install and secure (less force required). It also comes with holders for both the standard EL-15 and 6x AA batteries.

                                  So far I am pleased. This units has a very solid feel. Having the extra battery power means I often can shoot all weekend without recharging.

                                  If this unit exhibits problems down the road like my off-brand unit did I will come back and update this review.

                                    great sturdy battery grip for the D7100. makes the body feel like a beast in your hand. at first i though it was a little too heavy but after a few shoots I've adjusted and don't even notice the weight. overall great product. it more than doubles the amount of shots i can get off before charging batteries
