Description:
The AA grip allowed SF series camera owners to replace the expensive 2CR5 lithium battery with AA cells. The left item is the original lithium battery holder, the right hand one is the AA grip.

Pros: Allows use of cheaper, readily available AA batteries
Cons:

I have one. Bought it many years ago when 2CR5 batteries were very expensive (in relation to wages). I don't know where I bought it - possibly when I was living on Norfolk Island from 1990-1993. The box has $36.95 on it. Had I bought it Saudi Arabia in 1989 when I bought my SFX, the price would be in Riyals.

The biggest problem was that it eventually tore the camera case even though it was perforated to allow a bit of stretching.

It seems that they aren't that common.
