Battery grip for MZ-5n

Hi there,

I am selling a lot of Pentax things on Ebay now, mostly non-working Bodies,
But attached to a broken MZ-5n was a battery-grip. looks unused to me.

Is that something I could sell on Ebay or is this too special?
Don't know if that`s a piece of junk or a wanted item...

Could you give me a hint?

thank you

I bought one new in box (old stock, probably) for maybe 20€ shipped in ebay, one or two years ago. I remember that there was a lot of them for sale, very cheap. So, no, it's not a rare or "special" item or anything like that.

That's the Battery Grip FG. Not rare. KEH always has them for around $10.

Yep. Nice. Useful. Not at all rare. I've sometimes wondered why so very many of them were made. But it's a good thing for us.

Triple A, I assume that's a typo because mine use Double As.

Yep, it's a typo. I wanted to say "AA" and NOT "AAA".

Well, that's why they're good. I'd just always wondered why there seemed to be such a surplus of them out there, considering that.
