Need more battery life for your Nikon Z series camera? I think you would like to try this one from Vello at a lower price point (almost half) than the Nikon version.

And this one has several Key Features:

It will hold the factory battery door from the body inside the grip while it is being used.

It will hold the factory battery door from the body inside the grip while it is being used, as seen by clicking here, which takes time and can chew through a battery.

Installing this Battery Grip extends my shooting time and allows me to test and look at each battery's charge levels.

I also discovered that I could hook up an external power pack to the charge port on the battery grip and extend the shooting time if needed.
