    ....and bought a vertical grip for the 10D on eBay. I've got a couple
    extra batteries coming in from Thomas Distributing so I'll have a total
    of 4.

    I shall never run out of juice in the middle of taking photos again!

    How much did you pay for it?

    You'll get spoiled :)
    I've loaded up my DSLR (Pentax *istD) with litium CR-V3 batteries including
    the optional grip (equivalent of 8 AA batteries). 1500+ flicks later and the
    meter still shows a full charge.
    No doubt I'll forget about it until the batteries fail in the middle of a
    shoot.. . like the propane tank going empty in the middle of a BBQ :)

    $156 with shipping. I would have preferred less, but no one stocks this
    item any more and it regularly seems to fetch $200.

    That's what spares are for!

    OK, thanks. I've got one for sale that I bought with my original D 30's.
    I'll get it up on ebay in a few weeks. That money will pay for a couple of
    CF cards and extra batteries for my 20 d.

    Ah yes, batteries and CF cards. I have another 1 gig card coming from
    newegg, and the aforementioned batteries from Thomas Distributing.
