Great addition to my D90 There were several reasons I bought the MB-D80. One was longer battery life. I do a fare amount of night work and the long exposures tended to drain the 1 battery. I also wanted the extra shutter release for when the camera is turned on its side. Another plus I saw was the extra weight to help with the overall balance when using a long lens. For me all these pluses came true. The extra command dials also come in handy. The nice surprise was the built in slot to hold the camera battery cover so it does not get lost. Nikon does a good job at thinking of the little things. August 7, 2010
Must have for portraits Very flexible power options! Works well out in the field. The only problem is the shutter release is very sensitive, no hard stop for half way down. Expect a few misfires till you get used to it. October 8, 2010
Unreliable. Frequent power failures when shooting. Very disappointed. Puchased new. Used on D90 with only Nikon EN-EL3e batteries. I frequently experience power outages when using the grip. Without the grip the camera runs fine all day. No matter how tight I tighten the knob connecting the grip with the camera the power periodically cuts out for no reason. Yet the display and the battery meter in the menu in the camera say that there is plenty of power left. If I wiggle the grip or turn the camera off and on a few times the power eventually comes back on. Very frustrating. When it works it is a great accessory. But I've missed some nice shots because the power suddenly died. The grip is not reliable. Nikon needs to investigate this issue. Save yourself some money and buy an aftermarket grip instead. January 28, 2011
piece of trash i spent a lot of money on a piece of garbage. This thing kills batteries. I have gone through 4 Nikon batteries. I get about 40 pictures with both batteries in it. Then both batteries are dead. This is one of the worst products Nikon makes. I used it on my D90. DON't buy one!! ENFIELDE December 4, 2010
Take your chances I have been using the MB-D80 Multi-Power Battery Pack for the last six months and have had more problems then not. I shoot motorsports, family portraits, weddings, etc. When I first received the grip it was constantly lost connection. After taking it in and out of the camera several times and almost sending it back it started to work. So I kept it past the return policy date. Five months later it started to loose connection again. Now it looses connection every 6th or 7th photo. The fix according to numerous internet sites is to keep bending the middle prong in the camera battery compartement. Poor Quailty Assurance. Why would Nikon continue to make a product that has so many problems? November 29, 2010

Answer: 
No. The grip is threaded in the exact same location as the camera, therefore it is only capable of horizontal mounting. I've never actually seen a grip with vertical mounting capability.

Answer: 
If you look on page 239 of the user manual there is a good picture showing the removal of the door.
You lift the door about 35 degrees and then pull the door straight out. It should click out without much pressure.

There seems to be a connection problem with the pins inside the battery compartment of the D90 and the connection points on the MB-D80 battery grip. Sometimes it will read the "Left" battery and other times it will not. Is there a fix for this? I have read on a number of forums, this is a problem with the middle pin and a design flaw.
