Great way to power your camera

I decided to try this within a battery grip and really appreciate the added power to increase the fps with the camera set in CH and the extended shooting time.

no surprises here

This battery charged up just as it should and works perfectly.

It does what I expected. The extra frame rate on the D850 and the extended battery life extends the D850 making it a great backup to my Z9. Oh, and it can power the Z9 if the EN-EL18d gets too low.

Mega Power!

This is the most powerful Camera Battery I've ever seen. Still going strong after extended use that would drain lesser Batteries. Charges in 4 hrs. or less & connects quickly to my D850 in the MB-D18 grip. Worth the investment.

The new battery to replace my old model 18a was easy to find. B & H had many in stock. The ordering process was quick. Thanks for the free shipping, and even though it was sent by ground, it arrived in just 2 days. Plenty of time to charge it up and be ready for my next photo job. Always happy with Nikon quality products, and the excellent and precise service of B & H.

Nikon EN-EL 18c would not charge

By Jerry
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2022-07-03

Initially the NIKON EN-EL 18c battery wouldn't accept a charger with the Watson D-3416 charger. After several repeated failed attempts to charge the new battery I decided to use it with the limited charge it came with. I had read a long time ago that these 'new' batteries (including Nikon and others brands) would probably have been setting in storage for long time and would loose their 'memory' on how to accept a charge. After I used the 'new' Nikon battery continually for 10 minutes on a short video shoot with the charge it came with I put it in the Watson charger ( the Nikon charger would likely have charged it as well ). The battery fully charged. I have not used the battery at this point but will shortly. It seems that these 'new' camera batteries will not take a charge out of the box. They need to be used a bit before they will accept a charge.

Works perfectly

Will my MH-26 battery charger (SN 120701455) that came with my D4 camera properly charge the newer EN-EL18C batteries? The EN-EL18 battery that came with the camera is an 10.8V/2Ah battery. The EN-EL-18C is rated for 10.8V/2.5Ah. The extra 500mAh would be nice but my current charger needs to be able to fully charge the battery.
