This battery just keeps working. It was a decent battery on my D200, allowing me a good amount of shots, especially with the MB-D200 and dual batteries. My original battery from the D200, which is nearly 2 years old, still hasn't shown a sign of wear on the in-camera battery menu. Now with the new D300 out, the thing just won't die. I pop two of them into my MB-D10 and the performance lasts forever! At the last wedding shoot, I pumped out around 1000 shots on my D300 and used no more than 3/4 of the first battery, not even touching the second one in the grip. I'm a conservative shooter too, flipping the camera off quite often, but this battery doesn't disappoint. And for the price, just go with the Nikon version and feel better powering your Nikon gear with Nikon batteries. Why pay nearly the same price for off-brand batteries that don't carry that little word we all know and love, "Nikon."

I use this battery in my D200 which is what Nikon recommends.
While I have used both Nikon and aftermarket batteries I am not thrilled with either. The Nikon ones are better and do not require any firmware updates, do keep in mind that NIKON DOES NOT WARRANTY BATTERIES!!!

I found this out the hard way after using my batteries for a year or so and they just stop working or will not charge. Even when the battery indicator on my camera says the battery is "new". Frustrating, and Nikon says sorry please buy a new one.

It's a battery. A review should be conducted a few months down the road to see if the battery is doing what batteries should do over time.

Factory Brand for me

Comments about Nikon EN-EL3e Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Battery (1410mAh):

Replaces an original Nikon that lasted 4 years. Off brands may be cheaper but I do not think they stay charged as long or have as long a life. Personal choice, but the price difference is not worth it to me. Also may be only me, but off brands tend to fade to failure which seems to create problems. Nikon's for me just go from good to bad.

I bought one of these, along with a 16gb flash card for my Nikon D200 for a trip to South Africa. Surprisingly, this replacement battery hold a charge longer than a recently purchased OEM version and cost condiserably less.

Comments about Nikon EN-EL3e Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Battery (1410mAh):

Bought a few to replace the original 11 year old batteries that were not keeping their charge for my D200 that my daughter is now using. Her constant battle was the original batteries were not holding their charge and were abruptly going from being about 3 out of 4 bars to blinking they were out.

With the new ones, she is raving about how they don't die..

Comments about Nikon EN-EL3e Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Battery (1410mAh):

The EN-EL3e Rechargeable Lithium-ion Battery (1410mAh) is one of the best pieces of photographic equipment I have ever used. It is always reliable and easy to recharge when necessary. I always buy two of them and keep one constantly recharged while I am using the other There are generic ones available for less money but as they say, "You get what you pay for".
