    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.

    Ha! See, I can change...

    Did you see this?

    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?
    D70 and loving it!
