Works well

Nice to have this for document and slide scanning projects. Swapping batteries was tedious and problematic if not charged. B&H delivered a few days sooner than promised as well.

Really helpful

During long astrophotography exposures, really good not to worry about battery life. Works fine, exc the cord exit from the battery compartment is a little too tight. Worried about damaging something when closing.

Just what the Dr. ordered!

I needed this to power my D810 and convert my classes to online teaching. Now, I don't have to keep using/charging my batteries to shoot videos; this adapter kit solves the power issue and works exactly as described. My only concern is that the dummy battery seems weakly constructed and potentially could fail. Otherwise, this kit has been a lifesaver!

Does not work - buy the original Nikon EP-5B instead

The power brick works, but the adapter/dummy battery does not work properly at all. The camera powers up and works for about 15 seconds and the camera's display shows the battery symbol (which I learned is wrong, see below). After 15 seconds, the camera shuts down and I have to toggle the power button. What's also odd is that the two arrows on the two plugs that go together must be on opposing sides for the cables to connect when clearly they are meant to be on the same side. There is even a separate note included in the package that warns about damaging the camera when the arrows are oriented backwards. After this total failure I separately ordered the original Nikon EP5B adapter (just the adapter, not the power brick). Once that arrived I plugged it into the power brick and now everything works fine. The camera now shows a power plug symbol instead of the battery symbol, so clearly the correct signaling is in place with the Nikon part. The Nikon part's plug also has the arrow on the right side so the two arrows now point towards each other as one would expect. Clearly the battery adapter part is a badly made cheap knock-off with incorrect circuitry and cabling. Do not bother with this, buy the original Nikon part instead.

Great little thing

Bad news for your Nikon

Worked well for one day, then stopped working. Also managed to do something to the camera's system that required it to be sent to Nikon for repair. Fingers crossed it's covered!

DoA. Cannot get a response from manufacturer

Didn't try it until after the B&H return window closed. Dead. Not a peep. Tried it with two Nikons listed as compatible, two wall outlets and replaced the AC cable. Nope. It's an expensive brick. Tried to contact the manufacturer and B&H contacted them on my behalf, but nothing. After 6 weeks of that I am giving up and I will never buy any Bescor products again. Ordering the Nikon original. Trying to save money cost me a lot more. p.s. No reflection on B&H.

Works Perfect

Used for hours-long interval astrophotography and solves having to interrupt my session to replace batteries! Great find!
