    Upgraded to D700 from D70s - my spare D70s battery although it looks identical in size would not fit in the D700. The EN-EL3e is an upgrade that appears to now have temp. sensing (third contack added.) This battery is downward compatable to older versions of the EN-EL3_.

    After alternating between the OEM Nikon battery and the Pearstone EN-EL3e battery 8 months, I can say that the Pearstone is aging more quickly, charging to only 89% compared to 98% according to my D90, and discharging more rapidly, especially once its charge level drops below 50%. It's still useful as a backup battery, but if your budget can afford it, the Nikon battery would appear to be the better deal in the long run.

      I was thrilled to find replacement batteries for my not-so-new Nikon cameras! The batteries are just what one would hope for... they fit the cameras, they charge well, and they work! Yes!

          Works just fine in our Nikon D70 camera. Glad we didn't have to pay full price for a Nikon version.

                    Bought this battery as a back-up for my D80. Since I am now using a zoom lens with optical stabilization which takes power from the camera battery, I needed a back-up battery. The Watson fits perfectly, charges well, and holds the charge well.

                          I was disappointed 'cause I thought it was Nikon brand. Hope it works as good, don't like off brand merchandise.

                            I use these in my Nikon camera system and have found that they work as well, if not better than the manufacterer's supplied ones with a much lower cost! carry an extra!!

                                            It works good, fits perfectly to the charger (I have some other brand battery for Nikon which does not fit perfectly) and it is nearly half the Nikon price. B&H always provides good quality replacement products

                                              With a little less mAh rating than the Nikon original, the battery is a great deal. The battery flanges fit a bit tight into the charger, but it fit into the D300 camer perfectly. A great backup battery at a great price

                                                  I needed a spare battery for my Nikon D300 in a pinch. I usually go with Nikon's batteries, but B&H was out of stock. I was very happy with the performance and didn't notice any issues or major differences. The unit is 1450mAh compared to 1500mAh on the Nikon, so I suspect the battery life may be slightly lower, but so far no problem.

                                                  drop this Watson battery into your Nikon camera and prepare to shoot without doubt of failure.the Watson battery is the same color of gray that we have become accustomed to using.thank bh for knowing quality products and what their costomers expect of them.

                                                            Nice battery. Exact same performance as the Nikon battery and a good bit less expensive.

                                                              I have the Nikon battery pack and this battery is one of two that I routinely use. It works as well as the Nikon battery and costs about half.
                                                              Would not consider using anything different.

                                                              This is not the first Pearstone camera battery that I have purchased and will NOT be the last.

                                                              I highly recommend Pearstone to anyone needing additional batteries.
