quantium battery one +

can a quantium battery be used with either the k5 or k30 body? (6v)
is it a good alternative to the battery grip?

thanks

What are the purposes of using a Quantum 1 or 1+ to supply power to a Pentax camera body?

If it is to extend the use of the camera without having to swap battery, a battery cell in the camera can last 300 - 400 shots, how often do you have to change batteries?

To save money and weight? A battery cell is about $10 (third party) and is about 1/20 the weight of the Quantum 1 or 1+.

You will be carrying an external battery pack, plus a cord to connect the battery pack and the camera.

I would NOT do it even if it's possible.
