Handgrip D-BG6

Hello,

short question. Got my K-1 with the grip today.
Did yours have an extra battery included. I remember that formerly a secon battery was included.
I did not have that.

Thanks and BR from Germany

Mine did not have a battery. Neither did my DBG-5. I think the extra battery was a long time ago or in special packages.

Pentax grips don't come with batteries, so you'll have to buy a second D-Li90 separately. You should have two different types of trays, though: one for the D-Li90 and one for six AA's.

Interesting. I swear the grip with K-5 came with a battery as I have two batteries with identical serial numbers.

My K-3 Prestige Edition definitely came with the second battery. Identical serials as well.

The numbers are manufacturing date; they are not serial numbers.

I think I remember hearing that a battery was included in some countries with the K-5 grip. In the USA we have never gotten batteries with our grips, but I have seen people post (from other countries) who did get a battery with their K-5 grip.

Really Right Stuff has one, but not an "L" plate.

They often mark things as discontinued when they're simply out of stock. If you can't wait, here's the link to Kirk's directly:

Where to find the serial number of the battery grip? I don't see anything printed on the grip or the package.
