The Newell BL-5 Battery Pack Adapter is the ideal way to expand the versatile capabilities of the Newell MB-D12 grip (and its equivalents from other manufacturers) compatible with the Nikon D800 and D800E cameras. This compact device will allow you to place the EN-EL18 battery pack, known from DSLR models such as the Nikon D4, D4s and D5, in your battery pack. This will be a great choice for those who do not want to waste time replacing eight “sticks” AA or looking for an alternative to the EN-EL15 cells. The manufacturer took care of a perfect fit of the adapter to the battery compartment located inside the grip. There is also a convenient manual lock that will effectively protect the device against accidental ejection.
