Anyone have experiences (good or bad) with some of the battery grips available for the a6000?

Shame there isn't a sony brand one, but I would like to have one for when I am looking for more grip/balance and extra battery.

I have 2 of then, 1. the OwnUser Battery(about $120.00) 2. Neewer Battery for sony a6000(about $60.00 or less), they both work fine, but the neewer feels a bit cheap but you are able to use with the Sony LA-EA4 adapter. the ownuser has a better feel but is to low to use any of the sony adapters.

I ended up ordering the Neewer grip, and it stopped working on me on day one of my vacation. Sent it back to amazon.

I have not had any problems with it, maybe because I have done a few modifications to the unit, first I noticed that the battery rack was not locking all the way, so I place a black Styrofoam piece on the battery door so it would be a little more tighter as it closes.

Probably what was happening to me. It was giving a battery error. Im still ok with my decision to return, I did not like how it felt. Hopefully there will be a higher quality grip released./

since I'm always traveling Between Hong Kong and Mainland China, I have tried a few they are all almost the same quality. the only improvement is one by "travor" that uses your cellular bluetooth as a trigger with the app they supply. other wise they are all the same. the reason I used it is because of the sony A-mount to e-mount adapter so I'm able to have a wider range of lenses by using A mount lenses like the sony 50mm Art, the cheapest 17-70 f/4 C
and a few more.
