five stars! nikon brand and it does whut a batteries suppose to do i dunno whut else i caan review this product about lol i mean its just a battery but yeah. these batterys are really quick when it come to recharging! for me ive killed one of these like once and another one still at round 30% left and they recharged in less that 2 hours! that might be a bit slow for some people but im perfectly fine with that. annnd thats about it~... u can prolly use it as an emergency weapon of some sort like a rock and throw it at somebody but i doubt youll be throwing [$] at somebody unless you like REALLY need to XD and it should be able to survive drops on carpet n like soft surfaces so whenu throw it at someone and your on carpet...you can just pick up the batt afterwards and still be able to use it :DDD if i were you id just save up for this rather than getting a third party batt.

I use this battery in my D200 which is what Nikon recommends.
While I have used both Nikon and aftermarket batteries I am not thrilled with either. The Nikon ones are better and do not require any firmware updates, do keep in mind that NIKON DOES NOT WARRANTY BATTERIES!!!

I found this out the hard way after using my batteries for a year or so and they just stop working or will not charge. Even when the battery indicator on my camera says the battery is "new". Frustrating, and Nikon says sorry please buy a new one.

        Comments about Nikon EN-EL3e Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Battery (1500mAh):

        When I bought my D300 & D800 Nikon cameras I saved money on an extra Non-Nikon battery for each of them. They were also of different brands. These were always alternated with the Nikon battery in each camera, so they sustained the same amount of use as the Nikon battery.
        Both of the less expensive batteries have failed; but the origional Nikon battery in each camera is still performing normally.

              Once again I have gone to B&H for my last minute travel accessory needs. Batteries performed flawlessly on my trip to Europe. While my Nikon is an old D200 it still is in need of these batteries.

                    I had a Nikon D90 for years and sold it last year to upgrade my camera. I recently purchased an Older D90 thru B&H to have converted to an IR only camera. When I owned the D90 I also made sure I had 3-4 spare batteries. This is a good, though costly practice. I purchased thei EN-EL3e for exactly that reason - A need for a power backup when you get yourself into a pinch. Solid built, pure power. Long duration.

                        I bought a Nikon camera in the fall of 2009. It came with a Nikon battery and i also bought another battery of a different brand for a backup. The backup battery has started showing signs of going bad but the Nikon battery is still going strong so I bought another Nikon battery to replace the other brand.

                          My Nikon D200 isn't used much but, it's Nikon brand battery stays charged, and never lets me down, when I do. My D300 is used almost every day and provides same fantastic service. Have a few spare Nikon batteries for quick change while traveling and especially when out of the country don't have ready access to an overnight charger. They all hold their charge and never let me down. Buy the Nikon original and you will be happy. Never had one go bad in many years of use.

                          I always use the Nikon original. I tried another brand once, but it was crap. Nikon batteries lasts long. I have four spare batteries for my d300 and three for my d800

                            Although I do buy some aftermarket accessories when it comes to batteries I always buy Nikon Batteries for my Nikon cameras. I've been using some of the same EN-EL3 Batteries for over a decade with no problems at all.

                              Purchased to replace a OEM branded LI battery. The OEM unit was bought as a second for my D90 some years back. The original Nikon EN-EL3e is still performing - the OEM is dead.
