I bought this mostly for a trip where I was going to need extended battery life, and as an added bonus I would get an additional shutter button for portrait shooting. I picked up 2 extra batteries for my Nikon D40 to go into this unit. The extended battery life aspect of this device worked great, and doesn't add a whole lot of extra weight. This unit also comes with a caddy to use standard AA batteries. I never got this to work reliably. As far as the extra shutter button, this is a bit of a hack. You must set your camera to remote mode and then on the grip there is basically a remote built in that triggers when you push the shutter release. It is a little slow, and makes you switch to it every time you want to use it, so it is not for on the fly shooting. For the price of $40 that I paid I would say it was worth it, but if you want a true battery grip you will need to upgrade your camera and get one that is designed to be used with a device like this.
This Targus grip works on the D40, D40x, D60, D3000, and D5000 and for 30 dollars it is definitely worth the money. However, I would not pay anything more than 50 dollars at most for this product. There are some great qualities about the grip that I will mention. There are of course downsides as well.

First of all, this grip does exactly what it claims. It adds just the right amount of grip space on the small bodies of these Nikons. With the 18-55 kit lens it isn't really necessary but when stepping up to larger lenses the grip becomes invaluable. For example I am using my Sigma 12-24 full frame lens on my D40x and the Targus grip really balances out the feel of the camera. When I add my SB600 my whole setup would be unbearable without the Targus grip.

Next up is the vertical shutter release. It is incredibly annoying having to switch to the remote setting in order to use the vertical shutter but this is not Targus's fault. Nikon did not design these cameras... Read more
Works as advertised. Easy install, appreciate the extra juice
