It came with a kit bundle for my D7100. It's new, and I use it as my primary Battery. I use the Nikon EN-EL15 for a backup. These EN-EL15 battery last a whole day shoot and longer. Haven't used the Nikon EN-EL15 yet. Well, we'll see how long these Watsons last.

Worked great in the camera body, but wouldn't work in the Nikon Battery Grip after the camera was turned off and back on. Reported no power even though fully charged, and the camera wouldn't switch to the camera body battery. Had to remove the Pearstone battery to get it working again. The OEM battery works flawlessly in the grip and body.

Other than that, there was no decernable difference between it and the OEM battery from Nikon.

B&H was good enough to RMA the battery, we'll see if its a faulty battery or a faulty product.

                  I bought 2 of these. THe one seems ot be working ok, but I am not sure it keeps its charge as long as the Nikon product.

                  The second one arrived DOA. Won't even light up the camera's panel. When you put it in the charger, the charger LED flickers rapidly, indicating a defective product. Had zero use out of it, though B&H refunded the product (thank you), it cost me a lot of money to have it shipped overseas. Not happy.

                          I use it with the MB-14 grip. Looks virtually like Nikon's EN-EL15.

                              I use two with the Vello battery pack, and so far I have not been able to distinguish any difference in length usage compared to the Nikon battery. To me, that is a plus. I would prefer 2000Ah for a known longer usage time, but you can't have everything, especially at the lower prices of these batteries

                                        Cheaper than paying for the Nikon name. I've had no problems with it.

                                            Works great so far, I have a little concern about longevity for the battery as not being a Nikon battery but is working very well so far and have no complaints. I have used in camera and in the battery grip with no problems.

                                                  I received this with my Nikon 750. I'm a macro photographer and use the live view a lot. The battery performs as expected when shooting without the live view but since live view drains batteries in general I can't comment at this point if it lasts longer than other batteries using the same features.

                                                    I've only used this battery twice, and both times the life has been dramatically shorter than the equivalent Nikon battery. It may be that repeated use and charging will improve battery life, but for now, I can't give this product a very high rating.

                                                        I keep this battery on hand as a back up and it has served me well for longer events that require multiple hours of shooting. The battery life isn't quite as long as the battery that comes with my Nikon cameras but it does the job.
