works as promised to allow me to use the more robust batteries I have for my D4S in the D500. Unfortunately, doing so - even though one can also install the battery that comes with the camera at the same time, meaning that I have two batteries in the camera - does not provide for a faster frame rate, only longer usage. That's not a fault of the battery chamber cover, however.

This battery cap allows a Nikon EN-EL18 or 18a battery to be used in a Nikon camera battery grip MB-D12 or MB-D17. I use this in an MB-D17. The use of the larger battery allows far more images to be captured before having to change the batteries. It's well made and does its job. As a Nikon accessory it is merely expensive rather than being wildly expensive. I needed one in a hurry and this was the obvious choice but a third party item should be at least as good and probably cheaper. Nikon can't stuff this full of electronics with random changes to defeat 3rd party suppliers. So if you need a battery cover to use the larger batteries in modern grips then this is good but I'm sure that there are equally capable 3rd party alternatives out there if you look hard enough.

The combination of the the MB-D12, D800 and BL-5 give me extreme battery life, a vertical shutter release and multi-control for the D800/800E, and battery compatibility with my Nikon D4 which means I only need to carry one charger when traveling. The BL-5 is a very expensive piece of plastic, but it does what it's supposed to and doesn't fail, which makes it worth the money.

The batter chamber cover fits perfectly on my camera. I will order another one later for a back-up.
