    This battery will last a very long time. With heavy use, it will last a week or sometimes more. If it's sitting in my bag or with light use it can go 4-5 weeks without having to be charged. The battery charges quickly. I highly recommend this battery although the price tag is high, you will be thoroughly satisfied with this battery. I have two Nikon D3 bodies and have a total of only 3 batteries between the two, because this battery is so great. Be warned that the battery does not come with the battery chamber cover (Nikon BL-4 Battery Chamber Cover for Nikon D3). You will need to order that separately if you do not already have one. The battery chamber cover from my EN-EL4 battery that I used with my Nikon D2H will not fit on my D3 body. The good thing about the cover being separate is that if your camera takes a fall and cracks the battery chamber cover, you just need to replace the cover, not the whole battery.

      Original two EN-EL4a batteries are 2009 vintage and close to end of life therefore getting new one ready for use. Thought about getting cheaper brand and they do work fine but they are lower than the 11.1v 2500mAh Nikon.

          Bought my second EN-EL4a because after 7 years..the original is "only" showing 330 on the picture meter after a full charge...new , it was over 1200. The meter on the D2XS is very accurate so there's no question how many shots you have left on the battery.
          Unbelievably long lasting!

                I need a second battery for my D3 camera. And I am glad to purchase the battery from Nikon instead of 3rd party. It is way more expensive than others but the battery's "fit-and-finish" as well as its runtime and life is well worth the money.

                      The way it looks this battery is good for more than 1000 shots!
                      I like it.

                                Comments about Nikon EN-EL4a Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Battery (11.1v 2500mAh):

                                I bought this battery at the same time I ordered the Nikon MH-21 "Charger" and BG-N8 "Vello Battery Grip" to use with my D300.
                                My main reasons for buying the Nikon EN-EL4a battery were to increase the camera burst rate from 6 to 8 FPS for drag racing images and to be able to shoot all day without needing to re-charge batteries.
                                At this point it seems to accomplish both goals very nicely. I've only charged the battery one time thus far and have taken about 200 shots, most with the a 70-200 f/2.8 VRI, lens and the charge level is down to about 50%.
                                I feel that the battery and the mh-21 charger are both more expensive than they should be but I've never had any reliability issues with any of my Nikon branded batteries or chargers either.
                                If I encounter any major issues with the battery in the future my review will be edited to indicate that.

                                  A Nikon battery for back-up is a good idea! I use a Nikon D3s and a D2x body, so the batteries are the same and easy to swap out. I made the mistake several years back and bought an off-brand battery for my D2x...it didn't hold up nearly as well as the genuine Nikon...if it doesn't have Nikon on it, I don't buy. The price may be a little higher but you know you are buying quality, even if it is only a battery.

                                    This new EN-EL4a replaces a 10 year old EN-EL4. The old battery served me reliably, in all sorts of conditions. The new one is rated for over 31% more capacity. Love it!

                                      I've tried off brand batteries and found they don't last or will not charge at all. Sticking with Nikon brand and very happy. Charges quick and lasts most of my day.

                                        I almost always use the grip on my D700 and this battery enables me to shoot longer and get the coveted 8fps for sports. I also have the D800 but as a freelancer shooting sports and editorial work, it's indispensable. Remember you can also grt the high frame rate even with no battery in the camera itself. About to shoot a 1000 Mile Dog Sled Race (Yukon Quest). The ability to easily remove the battery, keep it warm and then slap it in when the action starts Highly recommended.

                                          It is the required battery for the D3s, so you don't have a lot of options. However, the number of images you can take on a single charge is astounding compared to the batteries for the prosumer cameras.

                                          I purchased the Nikon battery grip, charger, end cap and this great rechargeable battery to allow for quick burst photography. I photograph dog sports, kid sports and a whole lot of wildlife, all of which need burst speed. The battery also makes overall camera battery life immensely longer. A wonderful purchase.
