Upgraded to D700 from D70s - my spare D70s battery although it looks identical in size would not fit in the D700. The EN-EL3e is an upgrade that appears to now have temp. sensing (third contack added.) This battery is downward compatable to older versions of the EN-EL3_.

After alternating between the OEM Nikon battery and the Pearstone EN-EL3e battery 8 months, I can say that the Pearstone is aging more quickly, charging to only 89% compared to 98% according to my D90, and discharging more rapidly, especially once its charge level drops below 50%. It's still useful as a backup battery, but if your budget can afford it, the Nikon battery would appear to be the better deal in the long run.

Great Nikon EN-EN3e replacement without the price!

Comments about Watson EN-EL3e Lithium-Ion Battery Pack (7.4V, 1450mAh):

The Watson version of the Nikon EN-EL3e is a real winner in terms of replacement batteries. Many aftermarket camera batteries are sketchy at best, but since B&H stands behind this product I decided to try it out. I was floored by its performance. I was still using the original battery from my Nikon D300s when I got this for the MB-D10 battery grip, and I hadn't realized how the years had taken their toll on the old Nikon battery. The new Watson far outperforms the aged OEM battery for $15 less. I cannot recommend this battery option enough.

    I bought these as a replacement for my Nikon batteries. They work just as good as the Nikon brand and are a lot less exprensive.

                The Watson battery is great, I've been using mine with a Torch LED light and a Marshall Monitor, and it has not given me any problems whatsoever! The battery life lasts a good amount of time, not the best in that area, but definitely not the worst.

                  It seems to work well. It is the second one of these I have bought as the oem batteries have lost their ability to recharge. This battery both fits the camera and the charger well.

                      This battery fits my Nikon D700, D300S or D100 and performs the same as the Nikon battery for a lot less. If you need a spare battery this will meet your needs.

                                  Bought this battery as a back-up for my D80. Since I am now using a zoom lens with optical stabilization which takes power from the camera battery, I needed a back-up battery. The Watson fits perfectly, charges well, and holds the charge well.

                                  I was disappointed 'cause I thought it was Nikon brand. Hope it works as good, don't like off brand merchandise.

                                    I use these in my Nikon camera system and have found that they work as well, if not better than the manufacterer's supplied ones with a much lower cost! carry an extra!!
