- Power Cord A – it is 3 meters long, and attaches between the "power source connector pins" on the Motor Drive A and the "remote control socket on the Battery Pack A.
- Power Cord M – allows for separation of Motor Drive LX or MX and their power sources.
Note that the Pentax FDP Grip Strap is not a battery pack. It is merely a hollow plastic device that looks like one. It does make the Z-1 a lot easier and nice to hand-hold, however.
