      Four stars because my first battery wouldn't hold a charge and needed to be returned. B&H Customer Service had a new one to me right away and the this one had no problems. The cost of the official Nikon battery is way overpriced. This battery does the same thing for nearly 50% less money. Well worth it. Only problem is it cannot be calibrated in the Nikon charger.

      Longer life in my MB-D12. But only works if you insert battery with the camera on. Otherwise the battery indicator blinks and camera won't turn on.

        It's hard to buy a non-Nikon anything, but the price is right on these batteries and so far, they are working great.

              I was slightly skeptical of using a third party battery for my Nikon D4s but it worked just like the battery that came with the camera. It's legit!

                    I am using this battery in my Nikon D4s and use the original Nikon battery in the MB D12 power grip for the D810. When I tried to use the Watson battery in the power grip with the D810 the camera did not turn on. I didn't bother trying to figure out a work around.

                        This is a 5 star unit as it is fully compatible with the D4s. I've taken several hundred shots and it's still 75% of its capacity rating. Charging is no issue. 4 stars as I'm unsure about the recalibration ability. I'm yet to try this feature, but several reviews point that this may not be possible with this unit. I'll update the review once I've done a recalibration.

                              Seems to be holding a charge like a genuine Nikon battery. This is my first non-Nikon battery purchase and was a little skeptical, but all seems to be fine with it.

                                      I bought these as extra back-up batteries for my Nikon D4, especially when using it to shoot movies. They work great and seem to last as long as the Nikon batteries but they're much less expensive.

                                        No issues at all - much better capacity than the Nikon battery and much cheaper. Nikon has to comply with more restrictive regulations about LiOn batteries in Japan, so it really isn't Nikon's fault - but why spend more for less.

                                                    This is the first off-brand battery I have ever tried and so far I am happy with it. In the first few tries out(3), it has worked flawlessly with the camera, has held a good charge and hasn't taken any longer to recharge than the Nikon batteries.

                                                    It does not, however, seem to work with the recalibration on the Nikon charger.

                                                    I will be curious to see how long it actually continues to work.

                                                    First battery was defective. It would not power Nikon D4 after camera was off for a long time. Had to remove & re-insert battery to power camera. It would then work OK even if power was turned off for a short time. B&H quickly replaced this with new Watson battery without questions or cost. Replacement battery seems to be working great.

                                                          It lasts normal, but takes way longer to fully charge.
