The battery so far works the same as the more expensive brand.

Non-OEM (Knock-Off) Battery - Is What It Is

My D4 seems a tad sluggish when powered by this copy of the EN-EL18. It discharges far faster than the Nikon version. So far, it seems to work okay; it fills a void for me, I don't feel comfortable unless I have 3 batteries for each camera I'm using for work. The Nikon OEM version lasts longer per-charge, and next time I need one of these I'll go with the OEM version. Or the EN-EL18a knock-off.

Great backup battery

Cheaper that a Nikon batter and works great so far. Big test in the Alaska cold and hopefully will last as long.in the cold.

Better than no battery at all

Not impressed with the Watson EN-EL 18. Maybe a got a defective battery but it has never held a full charge. It charges to 73% and then basically dies after 100 actuations in my camera. I personally use it as a backup battery only- knowing it has little to no life in it. The battery came with a package I bought from B&H. If I had paid for this battery on its own I would be very disappointed. The saying is true..... you get what you pay for. There is a reason this battery is so much cheaper than the Nikon version.

Same as Nikon battery for less money as far as I can tell.

So far, not a bit of performance difference from Nikon's

Charges and lasts just like Nikon's battery. Time will be a better judge but I see no reason why this won't hold up as well as the original

Doesn't Seem to Hold a Charge

After using it as a back up battery for both the D5 and the D850 - (In the Nikon MB-D18 Multi-Power Battery Pack.) for the last 11 months I'm sure that it doesn't hold a charge as long as the Nikon battery. I haven't actually tested them for comparison but I've used it plenty enough to get a feel for it. It's not bad for the money but in the end, the extra for Nikon's model seems to be a better option. I'll keep using it, there's no reason not to but I'll not buy another.

question

Does this work with the D5?
Asked by: Matthew H.
The D5 uses a EN-EL18A battery. My D4S also uses the same battery. When I bought my camera I was given a spare battery which was not made by Nikon. In one year the battery stopped working and I had to buy a replacement. So, when buying a spare battery for the D5, you should get a EN-EL18A and be sure it is a Nikon brand. They cost more but it is worth it in the long run.
