Damn.

What exactly about the battery compartment is the obstacle?
The shape of the well is different. The three K-x batteries along the edge of the grip are configured closer to a straight line. The middle battery of these three is more offset in the K100. Believe me, you are not going to fit the existing Travor grip on a K-x.

Aha. Thanks for that info. So scratch that idea.

I guess I'll just have to wait for a proper 3rd party grip for the K-x to be produced by someone.

Battery grip modifications

Well it looks like the makeall K100D grip is nowhere to be found. Anyone have any luck in sourcing one out?

In its absence, I was thinking that it may be possible to take both the Dicain grip and the Travor grip and Mash them together.

If the Dicain grip is hollow and has room inside to store a battery back, then it may be possible to remove the battery poles from the Travor and install them on the Dicain grip.

I don't own either of those grips, so some feedback as to this idea would be appreciated. Does anyone have any knowledge as to why this would NOT be possible?
