This battery just keeps working. It was a decent battery on my D200, allowing me a good amount of shots, especially with the MB-D200 and dual batteries. My original battery from the D200, which is nearly 2 years old, still hasn't shown a sign of wear on the in-camera battery menu. Now with the new D300 out, the thing just won't die. I pop two of them into my MB-D10 and the performance lasts forever! At the last wedding shoot, I pumped out around 1000 shots on my D300 and used no more than 3/4 of the first battery, not even touching the second one in the grip. I'm a conservative shooter too, flipping the camera off quite often, but this battery doesn't disappoint. And for the price, just go with the Nikon version and feel better powering your Nikon gear with Nikon batteries. Why pay nearly the same price for off-brand batteries that don't carry that little word we all know and love, "Nikon."

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.

        Comments about Nikon EN-EL3e Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Battery (1410mAh):

        I have a Nikon D90 and the original battery is still working great but decided it's been around a while and I should have a backup battery. Since I had good luck with the original I decided to buy another Nikon battery as the price difference from a 3rd party battery is not that great and if it lasts as many years as the first one there is no reason to try and save a few dollars.

        Comments about Nikon EN-EL3e Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Battery (1410mAh):

        This was definitely one of the best purchases I've ever made! This a great battery for a great price and it's definitely worth having a few for back up. You will not be disappointed with this purchase it's definitely a necessary buy. Can't go wrong when buying from B&H. I bought directly from there New York store in person and everyone there was very knowledgeable and kind. I will definitely be buying from them again. Keep up the great work!

          This is Nikon's version for use with the D2oo camera I have.
          I could have used another companies brand but I'd rather use Nikon's even though its more expensive.
          I've had two batteries before but they both could no longer hold a charge and I bought the D200 from B&H with the two years ago.
          I can't really find any faults because I think of it as a necessary item for the camera to work.
          And that's why I gave it 4 stars.
          As far as fast recharge, I never really thought about that since I had two, with the second for use as a backup.
          And one last thing, it fits the camera well and have never had it fall out, and when you go change it ( assuming you had two ) it dosen't fall out when you open the battery door.
