Although late for the addition: The camera does the battery evaluation, not the grip. The AA batteries have no charge rate electronics inside the battery unlike the rechargeable Nikon battery so the camera is making a blind guess based on terminal voltage alone. If you need more accurate battery indication, use the EL-EN15 rechargeable battery.
Since the discussion was about the Pixel unit, I remember it was the first 3rd party grip announced for the D800. The Nikon version was really expensive at the time, almost $600, so I ordered the Pixel for $106. That dropped about $50 later. It feels great on that camera, and has thicker better gripping rubber on all surfaces compared to the more expensive Nikon model. My other cameras have Zeikos and Meike grips that was around $55 each and both of those have worked well and have held up very well. Each is tightly fitted to the shape of the body without wiggle or flexing.
