That is not actually a "battery" grip.
The grip can't hold/contain any batteries!
If you read carefully, it says "vertical grip"..that should give you a clue..and for so much dollars for something that doesn't even come (can't contain) with batteries!

The Dicain vertical grip i looked at had visible wires on the exterior. I wonder if this one is the same?

The Travor grip contains a very light and powerful Li-ion battery, but no vertical shutter. A bit clunky looking, but very nice to grip. https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/camera-studio-accessories/33069-k100ds-battery-grip.html

Probably not.
The Dicain has a strip of plastic with the small stereo plugs for the remote port to connect to the vertical grip for the grip to work.
It is basically a remote shutter release only attached to the bottom of the camera.
