MB-D10 Multi-Power Battery Pack for D700 & D300 includes MS-D10EN for use with EN-EL3e battery (sold separately), and MS-D10 for use with 8 AA batteries (not included; accepts 1.5 V LR-6 (Alkaline), Lithium (FR6), Ni-MH (HR6) or Ni-Mn (ZR6)).
The MB-D10 comes with the MS-D10EN, which allows the pack to be powered by a Nikon EN-EL3e Li-ion rechargeable battery (sold separately).
The MB-D10 can also use the Nikon EN-EL4/EN-EL4a rechargeable Li-ion battery (sold separately); however when using this set-up, the BL-3 Battery Chamber Cover is also necessary for use (sold separately). and either the MH-21 or MH-22 Quick Charger (both sold separately).

The MB-D10 is a Multi-Power Battery Pack that provides extended shooting capability to select Nikon D-SLRs.
It also comes with the MS-D10, which allows the pack to be powered with eight AA batteries (alkaline, Lithium, Ni-MH, or Ni-Mn).
EN-EL4a/EN-EL4 and AA batteries support higher frame advance rates (8 Frames per second in the D700 & D300) than the EN-EL3e.
Enhanced sealing system helps diminish penetration by dust and moisture.

Why did I wait? Great addition to my D300s I read all the reviews on the internet about adding the MB-D10 to my D300s. Even looking a pictures of it to judge the size of it on the camera. I purchased it after having my camera for a year and after one month, wonder why I waited. This is a great addition to a D300s. Does it make the camera heavier? Yes. Is it more comfortable to hold ? Yes. Is it more usuable in the vertical position? Yes. I don't use the battery in the camera and only use the standard battery in the MB-D10 which still gives me plenty of shots per charge. The MB-D10 does come with a AA battery holder also. The MB-D10 fits like a glove and looks like it was built onto the camera. I use it on a tripod with a camera plate and can say it does not move at all, in any position. If you have thought about purchasing one, go ahead and get it. You will like it. February 20, 2011
Completes the D700 I added the MB-D10 to my D700 body purely for ergonomic reasons. It makes shooting vertically comfortable and intuitive and dramatically reduces wrist strain. I do not use a battery in it. I don't need the extra battery power- I regularly shoot 1.5K frames at weddings with just a single battery in the body of the camera without running out of power. Having no battery makes it lighter and better balanced. Thumb control for adjusting focus point and scrolling through images works just fine. Both exposure scroll wheels work flawlessly. It just works. Take care of yourself, reduce the wear and tear on your body by adding one to your camera today. February 11, 2011
Highly Recommended for Appropriate Nikon DSLR's The MB-D10 Grip is very useful for general camera handling and for making vertical shots easier. The additional 'gripability' it gives to a camera body makes for easier and safer camera handling, therefore I highly recommend it for all camera users. (Also - NEVER forget to use a good camera STRAP!) Another feature I like is that you can install the EN-EL3e battery into the easy-to-remove battery slide, and leave no (or a backup) battery in the camera itself. The camera models that use this grip can be set to use the in-camera battery first, or the MB-D10 battery first. Removing the EN-EL3e battery from the grip's slide is a snap for quick and easy recharging. (This is faster and easier than fussing with the battery door in the camera base.) The AF control button on the grip is also quite a useful feature. The grip is very well made, durable, and attaches easily to the camera body and will remain secure without fear of loosening. You can also use 8 'AA' cells if you choose not to use the Nikon battery, and the 'AA's' permit up to 7 or 8 fps shooting. This item is an accessory that is WELL worth the cost, and you will NOT be sorry you spent the money for it after you use it. Mine stays on the camera 100% of the time. December 26, 2010
Great Product But... Everything about this grip is spot on at least on my D700. Portrait orientation is much easier to handle with my usually weighty configurations. The AF On button, Shutter button, and command/sub-command dials actuate the same as my D700 - no sponginess,dead spots, or other usual characteristics. The multi-selector is nearly non-functional because of its' size - Left, Right, and Down are Ok at best, but Up is all but useless. Fit with the camera body is perfect, has a place to store the contact cover (camera side), and two power options (AA or EN-EL3e). That being said, it is more than worth buying a BL-3 Cover and EN-EL4a to power up. Nikon SHOULD include the BL-3 as part of the kit even if it means increasing the price to cover its' inclusion. It really doesn't make any sense not to include it. Most people I know buy it for the power gain/duration. Hence, the 4 stars instead of 5 July 11, 2010

I purchased an MB-D10 Battery Grip for my D300 camera. I also have the EN-EL4a batteries. When I connect the battery grip to the camera, the camera does not recognize it. The camera only works with the battery inside the camera. any help would be appreciated.

Answer: 
You should keep you camera loaded with a battery, and one in the MB-D10. The MB-D10 was built to provide an additional power supply to boost the one already in the camera. If you only assume you should use only the one in the MB-D10, why did you buy it? It would only give you the power already provided with your camera loaded with a battery, but without the MB-D10. Hope that helps.

I want to know if the MB-D10 Multi Power Battery Pack will allow me to get 6, 7 or 8 frames on my D300s when shooting in RAW or does it only allow the camera to shoot at 8 frames on TIff,JPGE, and the other files?

Answer: 
Let's put it another way. With your MB-D10 loaded and ready, you will be able to shoot raw pictures at a greater frame speed than you would have been able to without it.

Answer: 
The number of shots that can be taken with fully-charged batteries varies with the condition of the battery, temperature and how the camera is used. With one EN-EL3e battery in the camera is approximately 1000 shots and one in the MB-D10 is also approximately 1000 shots.
