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):

        1) Today is 10-8-14. I sharpied BH 12-01-09 on my two batteries. I haven't seen a decline in power. I also bought 3 8gb Sandisk Extreme III memory cards when I bought the batteries. They're still good.
        2) I set my camera at raw, jpg, large, fine. My control panel says 279 shots (560 images total) Fast jpg continuous release. Supports built-in camera flash fine.
        3) I just now upgraded to a Sandisk Extreme 32gb. I mainly use ambient light. My 2nd-hand on-camera flash eats AA batteries. After 8 AA's and about 45 min of constant shooting including continuous speed this runs sluggish.
        4) I use a Nikon Quick Charger MH-18a. I don't find it particularly fast. At least an hour(?)
        5) I'm buying: another battery, card reader and dual battery charge to support the 32gb memory card.
        6) It will be interesting to compare a brand new battery with my 5 year batteries. I'll let you know.

            Inherited a Nikon D200, discovered the battery was dead & used a proprietary charger. Found a charger on this site too so ordered an extra battery. Glad to find an OEM as reviews warned against buying an off brand due to lack of quality & danger of damaging the camera.

              Well its a battery, it stores energy for later use in the camera. The shape is exactly proper for fitting in the camera, thankfully, the bland matte grey finish is utilitarian and not especially asthetic. Overall I would say...
              Its a battery.

                      I needed another battery as a back up for my Nikon D90. I checked the B & H catalogue where two were offered. I checked the one in my camera and ordered a duplicate. Of the two shown one was from Nikon and the other from another manufacture but at half the Nikon price. I stayed with the Nikon and am very pleased but now wonder as the alternative make was identical whether I wasted mb money. Te and reliability will tell.

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

                              These batteries may cost more than the off brand batteries, however, they last longer both in terms of the charge they hold before you need to re-charge them and in terms of the life cycle of the battery (before you will have to completely replace it by buying a new battery).

                              I have bought both types of batteries in the past, Nikon brand and various off brands. I no longer buy off brands when it comes to batteries.
