Nikon d700 lipo battery hack

been modding my camera again this time to make a neat job off a lipo battery mod

ive cut out the center off the AA battery holder and re-enforced it with carbon fibre rod and put a plate on the bottom then found some nice little 3s lipo batteries at 1000mah that only cost £4 each and simply wired up a plug

Had to remove the tripod mount in the grip but dont need it anyway as when out shooting the birds the lens has the mount on it

So no i get 8fps for when out shooting birds rather than the standard 5fps

plus these batteries charge from flat to full in 10 min and weigh a lot less than 8 aa batteries

Total cost off work not including charger which i already had was £30 cos i found a battered battery grip on ebay
