    Glad to finally have a backup battery! Didn't know if they'd be in stock any time soon, but it was worth the wait. Very useful to have a spare while on the go instead of having to pack the charger and cable.

    Decent recharge time and the charge lasts long enough to get me through my travels.

    The only Con I think of think of (other than the price tag) is that it doesn't come in case but with a simple slip-on (or accidentally fall-off) cap. Expected this since that's how Nikon's slim batteries have been lately... but I like the ones that my 8800 take since they come with a clip-close case.

    It's just a battery. I used it on a recent trip to Egypt. It worked fine. I hope it keeps working for a long time. Too soon to tell. Can't give it 5 stars because I don't know longevity.
    It's use,however, has not noticably improved my photography.

        Comments about Nikon EN-EL12 Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Battery (3.7V, 1050mAh):

        I have a Nikon P300 that I carry around with me in my car. I keep it in case I see an interesting shot, or a vehicle collision, or an abusive cop, or if I come upon a UFO. I have never encountered the aforementioned scenarios, but if I do, I am ready.

        I have two EN-EL12 batteries always ready to go. I noticed that the first time I charged either it did take about 6 hours to get the battery charged.The batteries are excellent. The hold a charge for quite a few months when not in use.

                      Keep two on hand, one as a backup, but one seems adequate for most assignments. Prefer brand batteries to after markets. This one does the job and the price is very good.

                          Works perfectly, absolutely equal to the original battery. Holds a long charge, recharges easily while the camera (Nikon Coolpix S8100) is connected to the computer.

                          Batteries carry a certain responsibility. They should be relatively long in charge and be dependable, as well as easily charged. This Nikon battery does hold a charge for approx. 200 shots & it is dependable within this time frame. It lacks in being able to charge quickly, and in my opinion, (for the money it cost) it should hold a charge for considerably loner in time. The issue becomes: what are the alternatives? Right now there are really none. So, if you want a certain camera, and it only takes this kind of battery, then you live with it.

                                  I recently took a four day bike ride in Cajun country and carried my Nikon S9300 with this battery in it. I took numerous pictures of the scenery as well as extended videos of good zydeco and Cajun bands and the resultant dancing. The battery handled the load well. I carried a spare battery each day but didn't have to use it. I purchased an aftermarket battery of the same type to use with a previous camera but the OEM lasts longer.

                                          I now have two of these batteries. I thought that by purchasing a Nikon battery that it would have a longer battery life. Not so! Unless there is something wrong with BOTH batteries, which are both new, I can only get about 100 pictures per battery. This leaves me stranded. It almost makes more sense to buy a THIRD battery unit. Ugh... digital cameras use a lot of power. I use this in NEW my Nikon Coolpix S6300.
