Pentax KX battery Grip Help

Hey, I am just wondering if the third party battery grips for the Pentax K100d work on the Pentax KX. Why would they not work on the KX?

Something like this;
Battery Pack Grip for Pentax K100D K 100D Samsung GX100 - eBay (item 280435907243 end time Dec-18-09 11:59:21 PST)

Thanks!

K-x doesn't support a battery grip, sorry!

There HAVE been some cool mods to add one though.. Im sure there's a post here in the forums somewhere.

I think the only issue would be whether the dimensions of that K100D battery matched up with the K-x - ie whether you could fit the thing into the K-x AA battery bay and then fit the battery grip screw into the tripod socket on the K-x baseplate.

You'd just have to measure it up after getting some dimensions - eg the gap between the tripod socket and the bit that goes into the battery tray - from the seller.

Or just buy it and try it - then let us know if it works
