The Vivitar Deluxe Power Grip for Nikon D5000 will power a Nikon D5000 camera on 2 EN-EL9 batteries--the grip helps maintain stability when holding the camera, provides extended shooting time, and has a vertical grip shutter release button that makes switching from horizontal to vertical framing a snap.

I'm baffled at why Adorama would sell and item that does not work. Google it, and you'll see. I have a D5000, I'm using the right batteries, and it doesn't work. I ordered 2 from Adorama, and both don't work. No bueno. I've contacted the manufacturer and they play like it's not normal, but when you google it, everyone seems to say that it doesn't work. Boo.
