This is a replacement for my Nikon Coolpix camera, as I like to travel with one or two extra charged batteries so as not to miss a shot. Not only is it the perfect battery for my camera, but is the only one which fits it. Even the camera store which originally sold me the camera tried to sell me a compatible, only for me to find out that it was slightly bigger than the Nikon brand. It would not come out of the camera and had to be taken back to the store for a repairman to safely pry it out. Recently, after misplacing my back-up Nikon battery, the only battery I could find locally was a generic one. This one also was slightly bigger than the Nikon and lodged in the camera. What a relief to find an online source for the Nikon battery that is not only the right battery, but also cheaper than the compatible brands! It easily pops in (and out!!!) of my camera.

Fine So Far

So far so good. I suppose the test of a battery is really the test of time.

                      I bought this as a spare for my Nikon P530. I considered buying the aftermarket version of this battery, as it had a slightly higher capacity and was a few dollars less. I chose to get the Nikon battery after I read some reviews of the aftermarket batteries being slightly larger than the Nikon unit, causing them to become wedged in the camera. It's a few bucks more, but well worth NOT having to pry it out of my camera. I just recently took a trip to Mt. Rushmore, and was able to take a couple hundred shots and still have battery left. I can't complain, the battery is as good as the camera!

                          It charged up fine, and works like it should. Unlike other products where I might buy a "lookalike", I'm careful to get top quality with a lithium battery. Cheap lithium batteries can catch on fire, and there goes your camera.

                            Really disappointed. My old Nikon camera's battery lasted me for two days of non-stop shooting. I took two batteries on my trip and they were dead before I had finished my touring for the day.

                                    Have you ever been at a special event and just when you want to take those precious shots, the battery in your camera is dead. Well, this is why I carry a charged up spare in my camera case. I have had to use it on more than one occasion.

                                      I WORK my camera to the bone. Alternating between changing memory cards and batteries, I don't have time to be troubleshooting inferior products. I know what I'm getting from B&H so it's one or two less things to worry about. It allows me more"focus" in many ways.
