Some people like to add battery grips for extra power, some like to add it for extra hand placement, some just want the aesthetics of a larger cam. Panasonic cameras haven't been big on external battery grips as much as Canon cameras, but tor those that opted in on the GH1 cameras, there's a battery grip available. Actually, to be correct it states compatibility with G1 G2 GH1 G10 cameras. Hopefully this will be a trend for the newer models. Anyone already rockin' these? You can find the grips available on eBay (click here).

i got it. In the CaNikon world they make that as part of grip and it gets inserted in the battery housing. i am going to order one tonight for my GH1. i'll report back soon.
@Max - That is a dummy battery. You insert it into the camera battery tray so the camera believes there is a battery inside. The power comes from the grip.
What is that little box on the side ? Is it removeable !?
@Domingo - Nothing yet.
... what about the GH2?
