    The store thoughtfully included this extra battery along with the purchase of my new Nikon D5200 camera. The battery is an upgrade from the EN-EL9 used in my Nikon D40X, and I initially wondered why this upgrade was required. With five instead of the previous three connecting electrodes it obviously reflects more sophistication, and with the new compact plugin wall charger without the previous heavy long charging cord it brings a very nice change. I rarely take my camera out for any extended time without a backup battery and charger. This new system is more compact and with less weight, and that's a big plus.

    The battery is completely functional. It is listed as an alternative battery for the Nikon Df, a replacement for the EN-EL14a which is the OEM battery for that camera.The battery is a functional replacement but does not have the capacity of the original EN-EL14a. I use this as a backup battery as it will power the camera for a few hours, about 300 shots. I'm getting about 800 shots with the EN-EL14a.

      Loved this battery. Took it on the Appalachian Trail with me and it was a great battery. Held a good strong charge and lasted a long time. Will buy another from B&H Photo again. Great price for a great piece of equipment!

            It's definitely not as strong as NIkon's original. But it will serve its purpose well as a backup battery.

                              It is good itself, but its capacity is too small. Of cause it is an issue of camera NIKON D5200 but not an issue of battery. The battery with camera is just 1030mAh, and just support 500 shuts.

                                      B&H gave this battery when I bought a Nikon D5200 DSLR & 18-140mm lens. When I first put it in the camera, a "wrong battery" message came up. After reinserting it everything worked fine! It has the same life as the Nikon battery that came with the camera.

                                          I was skeptical about aftermarket batteries, compatibility and other horror story issues had me nervous about putting anything but a Nikon supply in my D3200. But at half the price, I figured I'd give it a shot. Got it home, charged it up, and used it to record my band's gig the next day. Video eats up a ton of power quickly, so this is great. I can shoot one set, switch batteries, charge the first one while i'm recording the second set, and then have the other battery to shoot the final set. Perfect.

                                                  The battery life was good. Was able to take 250 pictures in night and it still had more than 50% life left in it. But i got a used one. When i took the battery out for first time it had some minor scratches on it.

                                                      I was in need of a backup battery and this fit the bill! Great battery pack at a perfect price point.

                                                                  It works with the Nikon D5300 with, so far, no compatibility issues. It doesn't last quite as long as the OEM Nikon battery but the difference in life is manageable particularly when considering the difference in price between the two.
