    It came with a kit bundle for my D7100. It's new, and I use it as my primary Battery. I use the Nikon EN-EL15 for a backup. These EN-EL15 battery last a whole day shoot and longer. Haven't used the Nikon EN-EL15 yet. Well, we'll see how long these Watsons last.

    Worked great in the camera body, but wouldn't work in the Nikon Battery Grip after the camera was turned off and back on. Reported no power even though fully charged, and the camera wouldn't switch to the camera body battery. Had to remove the Pearstone battery to get it working again. The OEM battery works flawlessly in the grip and body.

    Other than that, there was no decernable difference between it and the OEM battery from Nikon.

    B&H was good enough to RMA the battery, we'll see if its a faulty battery or a faulty product.

          Comments about Watson EN-EL15 Lithium-Ion Battery Pack (7.0V, 1800mAh):

          Have not having conducted extensive comparisons with the genuine Nikon version, I can say that it sure seems to last just as long. If one has a spare battery or two with them (and one should) then even if it does have slightly less performance, it simply will not matter. I can't foresee the potential degradation in performance vs the Nikon battery as being enough to offset the savings in cost.

          Take advantage of the savings and purchase a UV filter to protect your lens, or gain an additional memory card, put towards that new lens you deserve, etc...

                        Shooting with a D610, I cannot tell if Watson or Nikon is the battery in use and battery life is similar.

                          This was purchased as part of a bundle with my D7100. I did need a second battery for long shooting days. The D7100 lasts quite a while on a single battery but there are few things worse than a long day shooting and running out of juice before I am done.

                          What I like about this battery so far- it was cheaper than a Nikon and it is working perfectly in my camera.

                          I am a bit worried about Nikon's tendency to try and remove compatibility for third party accessories however and would not be surprised if at some point it simply stops working. Hopefully not, but...

                                                        We got this as a back up battery for a trip where we wont have reliable opportunities to charge the battery that came with the camera. The batteries hold charge for a good while, but it makes sense to have a second one charged, or even at home one will be charging while we use the other. Why risk running out of battery power?

                                                          I like to have a backup battery for my digital cameras and this one works well with my Nikon 7100 camera.

                                                            It came with a kit bundle for my D7100. It's new, and I use it as my primary Battery. I use the Nikon EN-EL15 for a backup. These EN-EL15 battery last a whole day shoot and longer. Haven't used the Nikon EN-EL15 yet. Well, we'll see how long these Watsons last.

                                                              I received this battery as an extra with my Nikon D7100. I had ordered a battery grip that I now use this battery in. It is very assuring to know that I have a hot spare battery built right into my grip.

                                                                  Note: I'm not a pro photographer. On a good day in the field shooting wildlife I'll shoot anywhere between 500 and a thousand images. The Watson EN-EL15 is good for a couple of sessions like this without need of a re-charge.
