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.

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

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

    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.

              Camera wasn't working and since it was about 12 years old, we worried we might have to replace the camera but it was only that the battery was also that old and we only needed to replace it.

                    I bought 2 EN-EL3e batteries to be used only in my Nikon D700. Alternating the charging allows efficiency in using them optimally. By not over-using them, I believe they charge up faster. And each charge will last for more shots than it takes to fill the memory card with RAW files. These are the only battery to use with the D700 - avoid the counterfeits. Comes with a re-usable cover so spare can be carried around in camera bag compartment, reasonably safe from dirt & damage.

                          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.

                            A must have backup for extended shooting and particularly, cold weather shooting.

                              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.
