Hello all.

I know there are a few threads already about different grips for the Nikon DX series, but one question hasn't been discussed as far as I know.

The DSTE grip for the D5200


comes with two battery inserts, one for the NIKON EN-EL14 types, and one for AA batteries. I'm interested if anyone has ever used this grip with high capacity AA batteries, e.g. SANYO AA 2700 mAh rechargeables. I would imagine, this grip with 6 AA batteries of that capacity would last a lot longer then with two standard Nikon EN-EL14.

Anyone had any experience with AAs in those DSTE grips...?

Thank you all!
