    The other guy must not know his D7000.

    Yes it's weird that a bunch of lesser nikon DSLRs have a port for the EH-5A adapter and the D7000 doesn't. So instead you have to pay [$] for this thingy, whatever.About...Read complete review

    Yes it's weird that a bunch of lesser nikon DSLRs have a port for the EH-5A adapter and the D7000 doesn't. So instead you have to pay [$] for this thingy, whatever.About the battery door not closing...If you look closely there is a little rubber plug so you can route the EP-5Bs cable under the door and close the battery compartment.

    The product integrity is actually fine, but someone should hold a pillow over Nikon's face for extorting money for this rather than including it with the $3000 D800. Shameless profiteering nonsense if you ask...Read complete review

        Comments about EP-5B Power Supply Connector for Select Nikon Cameras:

        Works fine in the D610 and D7100. Yes, it is chinzy of Nikon to make us buy this adapter for the EH-5 AC power supply, but it works fine. The little flap on the cameras was a surprise. Fits fine w/ a quick release plate that holds the camera off the tripod head so the pig tail comes out. Still, the build-in plug was nice. C'est la vie....

          Excellent product and it does exactly what I needed. I was able to set my camera up with an intervalometer and shot all night. I do wish there was a way for the battery compartment to be closed while out in the elements but it worked fine and didn't pose a problem.

              Enables me to use the EH-5A Power Supply (already owned)with the D800E. Perfect setup for my studio so I can shoot uninterrupted and monitor images tethered to a laptop.

                    I would give it 5stars but it is over priced and should be part of the power supply.

                        I've tried to save a buck and buy off brand but off brand is never as good as OEM Nikon products. This power supply is no exception... it's built to last and is very dependible and I can count on it when I need it.
                        I use it to supply power when I'm doing long Filming shoots with my D800 and I can't afford to have crew sitting idle if I run out of power.

                        Essential for the photographer working tethered.

                        This new design is robust but you end up with cables coming off the camera from both sides. The old design where all connections where grouped together was better. The best would be if when plugged in (on the side with the usb and HDMI connection) the camera battery was charged.

                              It does what it's supposed to do with my D800 but I don't like the price, especially after having to buy the expensive EH-5B. I'm not sure how durable or reliable it is as I mainly got it as insurance, so may not use it much.

                              I would have rated this thing 5 Stars, but the complete price after purchasing the additional Nikon EP-5B Power Supply Connector is too high. (when you feel the overall construction you will see what I mean). That being said, it is now an indispensable part of my studio arsenal. I can keep my batteries charged for outdoor and location use. I no longer have to worry about running out of power when I'm shooting video.If you spend most of your time shooting indoors, consider this option to buying spare base batteries or grips and more expensive batteries.

                                    It took me forever to determine if this can be used with an EH-5a or an EH-5 rather than an EH-5b on a Nikon D800. It seems that it can be used with any of these as explained on p. 387 of the D800 User's Manual.

                                    The reason there is a question is that these power adapters provide different output voltages. For example, the EH-5b provides 7.4 V while the EH-5a provides 9 V.

                                        It works well. It's very existence is the problem. The need for this adapter is just ODD. If the lowly D90 could have a direct plug in from the AC adapter, then why can't the D7000? (Apparently this nonsense wasn't corrected with the release of the 7100 either.)

                                        A fly in the ointment for an otherwise likable ownership experience.

                                        You should be able to use AC power by plugging the power supply into the camera directly like the D700. Alas, the D800/800E do not provide that capability. With this device you have to remove the battery. Having said that, this adapter does provide a solid connection that can't be accidently dislodged. The cost($), however, is way out of line. Reduced the rating because of cost.

                                        The product integrity is actually fine, but someone should hold a pillow over Nikon's face for extorting money for this rather than including it with the $3000 D800. Shameless profiteering nonsense if you ask me.

                                          The EP-5B is a must have for anyone shooting HD video on the D800. Battery life is short when in video mode. The EP-5B plus its AC to DC adapter allows a wide range of choices for powering the camera. A lead acid battery and inverter, the AC mains, a vehicle powered inverter, even a solar inveter, will keep the camera rolling.....
