We got Rob fixed up with a charger.

He and his brother stopped briefly at my house this evening to pick up my spare charger for his K-1 D-Li90 battery (which seems only fitting, since it was a spare to me, from my K-1 purchase - I've been using my K-3 charger for many years and never even bothered to unpack the K-1 unit until today).

I live only a mile or so off their route to the Grand Canyon.
Good to hear! Remind me to look you up if I ever get back out that way.

Thanks for the replies all, and special thanks to Dave for his hospitality and lending me his battery and charger. I’ve been driving all day so have only just managed to get back to this thread.

Have a great time! I havenít been to the canyon since about ten years ago. I managed to get down to Ooh Ahh point on the Kaibob trail and did some rim walking but I am hoping to get back and do a full hike to phantom ranch and an overnight stay in the future.

My wife, who's been around the world a bit, says that the Canyon and the fjords of Norway are the two places she's been that more than live up to advance billing.

I donít know what the K-1 demands, but I used some Energizer Lithium {non-rechargeable} batteries in my K-30 at one time.

Nope, sadly. Though I will try to figure it out once Iím home as I really want to be able to use AAís as backups

I have tried those on my camera/grip when you first posted about this issue and it should work even without in camera battery. Maybe some contacts within the grip itself got corded, AA basket use a different set of pins than the dli90 one.

I have been having issues with the grip on my K1 MK2, I think since the last software update. I use AA batteries in the grip, both Alkaline and Lithium rechargeable. When the setting is "Grip First", the grip batteries aren't recognized, but if I use the "Auto" setting, all is good.

I don’t have the k-1, but on my KP or k-3 it doesn’t matter which setting is selected, The camera will automatically switch to the charged battery once the other has run out. You might try removing the battery from the body, The grips work in my bodies even without any battery installed. Perhaps with the battery fully depleted it’s confused the switching logic somehow.
KP does not go with AA from the grip. If it were possible, I would be happy.

I was talking about grip first vs body first settings which donít care what type of battery is installed. The question of what the cause was at the time was still an open one.
