A few days ago I used my D800 for the first time and was very pleased with the durability of charge EN-EL15 Lithium-Ion Battery (1900mAh). Actually I could make a whole event with her without using my second battery. And when I upload it later, I was still more pleased! It recharges very fast!

This battery works and is built very well. However, the value is the reason for 3 stars. I purchased a 3rd party grip for $59 and use 6 rechargable AA batteries in it. This set up is a much better value. I get more shots per charge with the AAs. The Nikon EN-EL15's only advantage is that it is 2.5oz lighter than the 6 AAs.

    Comments about Nikon EN-EL15 Lithium-Ion Battery (1900mAh):

    Would not use the off brand! Other batteries will preform as well at first but will not last. The Nikon brand battery will out distance all others and save you money over time. I got this as my backup battery.

      Comments about Nikon EN-EL15 Lithium-Ion Battery (1900mAh):

      This battery came in a small box, which was placed in a bigger box. The small box was damaged, but the big box wasn't, which made be believe it wasn't damaged during shipping. I opened the small box and the battery looked fine. It holds a charge Ok, so I think it's fine. Other than that, I have no issues.

          Not much to say other than the headline. Its a Nikon battery and to no ones surprise it works in the Nikon D500. A third party battery [two of them! ] with a slightly better spec and a cheaper cost did not work in the D500 camera.

                Super efficient battery

                Comments about Nikon EN-EL15 Lithium-Ion Battery (1900mAh):

                I am not a name brand photog. I prefer to buy whatever best suits my needs at a price that I can afford. That being said, a quality power pack is essential and it's the one thing I won't skimp on. These packs are hardy (I have used these in -15 F with no issues). There's other places you can save money, so buy quality batteries!

                  This Nikon battery replaces a 3rd party battery that was half the price but is defective after just 6 months and about a dozen charges. Lesson learned, go with the top quality and in the end you'll save money and most important will have a battery in your bag you can depend on.

                  Some off brands are okay, but aren't much cheaper. I'll always stick with the name brand for each of my cameras (also Olympus for Olympus OM-D 5ii).

                    When I received my battery I put it on charge right away and it was ready to go 2 hours aftter. Since that time I took over 900 pictures and the battery is still going. It fit well in my Nikon D7100 and it keep is charge for a long time.I prefer a real Nikon compared to third party batteries.Very good product at a very tiny price.The only negative point is the shipping by Purolator. They are not fantastic for delivery but for the merchandise at B&H everything is great.

                      The EN-EL15 Lithium-Ion battery by Nikon

                      Definitely own more than one if you love to shoot, always have a spare in your bag, pocket, etc. I have several that I rotate out every time I grab my gear.

                      Keep in mind that the number of shots you get will depend on the amount you use the display on your camera, a major source for gluttonous power consumption.

                      Nikon's own test conditions yielded approximately 4,500 shots per charge. Testing according to the CIPA standard show this battery can take 1,050 shots on a single charge.

                          When I initially bought my Nikon D7200, one thing that impressed me was how long the battery lasted. I purchased another one of these batteries as a back up because they last forever! Recommend!

                          I only use Nikon batteries. All generic brands end up with some sort if problem, ie getting stuck inside the camera. Spend a little more, and shoot worry free.

                            I bought a used battery from a replacement supplier. It took a charge but would not work in any of my Nikon cameras. All of my Nikon factory batteries over 16 years have never failed. If you want trouble free reliability, get Nikon battery for your Nikon cameras.
