How about you try it and let us know the outcome? (Just kidding, of course!)

I don't have a problem with my engineering capabilities, I simply don't have a K-01. Tests using my K-5 would prove or disprove the concept for that camera, but may not be valid for the K-01, with it's alternative power connections.

If anyone's got a spare K-01 they can send me (include cost of return postage if you want it back) I'll happily do the test ... (not kidding, of course!)

Interesting point to consider ??

The terminal spacing and polarity on both the DLi09 and the DLi109 are the same, the inference being it wouldn't be beyond the bounds of possibility to adapt a DLi109 'dummy' to fit into a DLi09 receptacle! There is a lug in my K-5 battery compartment which corresponds to a recess on the original battery which prevents the full insertion of the smaller battery (or the dummy), but, on the dummy certainly, it should be straightforward to cut an appropriate slot to circumvent this. After that, a couple of pieces of packing would seem to be all that is necessary to complete the conversion.
If I was looking for a solution, I'd certainly give it a try, especially if there was a cheap third-party adaptor available to use
