Nope. Doesn't really need one for the battery side as the EN-EL3's get about 800-1500 shots per charge. Carry 2 spares and you should be good for about 2 weeks of shooting.

If the grip is the thing then, well, sorry bout' that. ;)

I'm working on getting the price down.
it costs me around $150.00 per unit.
I have a working prototype right now
http://www.tbauer.com/d70grip.htm
it is for cosmetics and ergonomics for now.
It is made of polycarbonates so it will match
the lQQk and feel of the D70.
I do have many people in line interested.
Soon it will be able to accept two batteries
and incorporate a horizontal / vertical (portrait)
flip flash bracket for the sc-xx cords and
SB-xx series flash heads.

I haven't seen a thing on the Nikon version so this looks very promising.

Just sent an e-mail asking about the cost... I meant the cost including flash bracket.

Looks pretty good. I assume you mean it accepts 2 EN-EL3's.

Very interesting? Do you have to remove the battery door or does it plug into the ac adaptor port?
