I don't expect to have anything at all go wrong with this type of an
accessory and so far it works great.
For me the ability to have the second battery online alone would justify the cost. My grip rarely comes off because I like the added size, weight and feel much more with it mounted than I do using the camera alone. In particular when using a Nikkor zoom or even the 105mm micro. Just balances everything out very nicely and gives me a more secure feeling holding the camera.
Note that it has a slot to store your battery compartment cover from the D200 that keeps that piece secure and easy to find when you decide to use the camera without this attachement.
That is one example of the thought Nikon put into this grip. Another would be the AF button and shutter release placed just where you need them for vertical capture.
People have asked so I might as well mention that I feel just as secure mounting this unit to the tripod as I would mounting the camera directly.
Great menu interface! You get seperate readings for each when you access Battery Info via the Set Up menu. Information displayed includes the percentage of charge for each unit plus the overall status of each battery. Status being indicated by the left to right scale showing overall condition by a needle wavering in between New and Replace. Above that and on the same screen are a L and R column for each slot showing percentage of battery power left. You also get a number representing how many shots have been taken with each battery!
Something to think about before you write a review about the battery and claim others lack understanding!
Included is a plastic tray that accepts eight various AAA batteries for use when the stock EN-EL3e units you use are drained. This is for when you just have to keep shooting. The way I use this tray is to carry spare batteries most likely intended for the SB800 flash unit. It does that job very well!
Good luck!

Some reviewers have criticized the build quality of this accessory. I do not agree. Yes, it is true that this grip is made of high-impact plastic and rubber rather than magnesium like the D200 body itself. This is not a bad thing, because it means that the grip does not add all that much to the weight of the D200. And in my opinion it is sturdy enough. The rubber on the grip, and the overall shape of it, adds heft and a pleasing ergonomics to the D200.

The D200 uses batteries at a more rapid clip than either the D70s or the D100. That makes this grip more useful. Being able to have two batteries rather than one supplying the D200 is very useful and practical. The D200 meters each battery individually when using the grip, and the grip uses one battery fully before switching to the next. This means that when it is time to recharge one of the batteries it will likely be fully discharged, which is good for the battery according to Nikon.

Besides the battery management aspect of the grip, it also makes taking portrait shots a little easier. It has a shutter release on the side, that makes taking these shots a little easier. Most users will grow to appreciate this.

Overall, I do not agree with those who criticize the build quality of this unit. A metal grip would have been too heavy. This one is light but sturdy. Recommended.

Verified Purchase
After reading many of the other reviews (especially about build quality), I was a bit nervous about how well I was going to like this item. But once I received it, installed it on my camera and used it a bit - my fears went away. Yes - it's plastic and not alloy like the camera, but it is well made and sturdy (if it were alloy, think how much they'd charge for it!). I really like how the camera handles now - much easier to grip in all cases. It especially makes it nicer to take pictures with the camera in a vertical mode. Someone said that it's a problem that it only has a single attachment point (the tripod socket), but I found that once you tighten it up (which is easy to do with a large toothed wheel), it doesn't budge - feels like it and the camera are a single unit. Yeah, I wish the price were a bit lower - but all in all, I feel like it's a good value: the camera handles better (especially for vertical shots), you can take a LOT of photos without changing batteries, plus it gives you the option to use 6-AA batteries in case you find all your D200 batteries depleted (or if you just prefer to use AA's instead of the D200 batteries). It's not an "absolutely must have", but it's definitely a "really nice to have" sort of item.

I got my MB-D200 last fall and after more than 6 months of using it I should say that Nikon has created a winner yet again!!!

1. The ability to have 2 fully charged batteries while going out to the field gives you that extra peace of mind.
2. In addition Nikon has added a menu that will give the shooter a very good indication of the battery power remaining. I have been able to get more than 200 shots in a day starting out with 2 fully charged batteries in the MB-D200.
3. The weight increase is very minimal and in fact the meager increase in weight enables the shooter to balance the camera better.
4. It was very thoughtful of Nikon to add the shutter release buttons for taking portrait shots and the main and sub command dials, to the MB-D200. I find myself using these controls quite frequently. If the user had to revert to the controls on the camera it would have been quite frustrating IMHO.
5. If you are a nature/landscape/wildlife photographer, you can carry additional AA batteries with you in the field and rest assured that you won't miss out on the "Kodak moment" due to a drained battery.

Some suggestions for improvement:
1. The first thing I noticed was the latch on the battery compartment. It feels quite flimsy and I wish Nikon had done a better job on this. A latch along the lines of the one found on the camera to release the door for the compact flash card would have been solid IMHO.
2. Though I mentioned that you can use AA batteries (you will need 6 of them), they can drain out amazingly fast, depending on the type of lens (with or without VR), depending on whether you are using the in-built or external flash and other variables.
