Nikon EN-EL15b Reviews

Weird shape. Odd charger. Great performance.

I wish it was a simple rectangle like so many other camera batteries, and I wish the charger had a simple flip- out wall plug. Regardless, it works, and the battery life in a Z6, while not superb, is certainly decent. I can consistently get probably 20% more charge life out of it than the specifications suggest.

Full power and reliable. Would sel3ct cheaper ones for the studio, but need the reliability for field work...have to pay the price for quality

Great, if it will charge

My first one was finicky and initially refused to charge with the supplied MH-25A charger (with a rapidly flashing orange light.) After ordering and charging another battery, the original somehow began charging normally and has worked fine since. The battery life using these in a Z6 is acceptably good. I get well over the rated number of shots per charge, easily 500 or more, and while shooting 4K video depletes it faster, your memory card might still fill up before your battery dies. I'd rather buy these than the cheaper off- brand versions if only for the slightly better battery life. When you're working with large file sizes you need all the charge life you can get.

5 month battery

Ordered 3 of these batteries from B&H for my NIKON Z6. Two of the three have quit working after 5 months of use. Nikon sent me an e-mail which said they do not warranty their batteries! I am shocked because my older Nikon batteries have been great.

Finicky charging. May appear dead when it's not.

The first one I received refused to gain charge. All I got was a rapidly flashing orange light signifying a problem- although the contacts were clean and the MH-25a charger was functional. B&H sent me a new one free of charge which charged normally. After charging the new battery, the old battery then somehow became chargeable. In my camera's battery info menu option, both batteries show as being new. So now I have two batteries. Both have continued to work perfectly for the last 4 months. Upon notifying B&H they charged me for the original battery but at a discount... in the end I saved $34 as a result of the the first battery being finicky. However this was at the cost of not being able to so much as turn on my new camera until the second battery arrived 8 days later.

A Must-Have As A Backup

I have only just gotten my new Nikon D500, so I haven't yet exhausted the battery that came with it, but on any all-day shoot, having a second battery is a must. I've charged this battery successfully. The only question mark in my mind is that a batch of these were recalled, and I just hope mine isn't one of them. Nikon batteries traditionally have terrific shelf life and performance.

To charge in the camera the EN-EL15b battery is required. You can use other EN-EL15 or EN-EL15a batteries but will need to charge those outside the camera.
