Nikon quality

  • Summary: I have two of these batteries. One came with my D80 camera, and I got the other as a spare (although the dealer added it for free as part of a sale). The battery is well made; typical of Nikon quality. It charges quickly and lasts a long time in use in my Nikon D80.
  • Pros: * Fast charging * compact * Lasts a long time
  • Cons: * Expensive * Proprietary shape * Proprietary chip in battery

  • Summary: Fully compatible with D80 or MB-D80 battery pack. I will provide battery information if you use with the D80. The information includes battery capacity (juice), how many more pictures you can take, and how many the frequency of charging the battery (this tell you when to replace the battery).
  • Pros: Good battery life with D80; Quick chage with Nikon charger
  • Cons: very expensive ($50)

Hard to find in stock but well worth it!

  • Summary: The third contact on this battery provides information to the camera body, e.g. D80, to determine the remaining charge, number of shots taken with this battery since last charge, and the overall life of the battery, i.e. when you will need to discard the battery as it is not performing as it should.
  • Pros: Good capacity.
  • Cons: No alternative (third party) batteries available.

Get a few of these batteries!!!

  • Summary: If you have a D-200 then you absolutely have to get at least two of these batteries to go with the camera. I would recommend getting a MB-D200, so that you can use two batteries at once. The Nikon D-200 camera is very unforgiving on energy. You can only get by for so long on one battery.
  • Pros: Charge fairly quickly.
  • Cons: Kind of Expensive, hard to find.

Nikon EN-EL3e battery

craig16229, PriceGrabber
9 June 2006
  • Summary: It's a battery, so there is not much to say other than it is very high-powered and has very good life relative to the very power-hungry camera I use (a Nikon D200).
  • Pros: Solid, quality made a battery that holds a good charge.
  • Cons: At the time of this review (June 08th, 2006), it's a hard battery to find in stock.

  • Summary: My original battery for Nikon S1 lasted much less, about 50-75 picture and I miss many other pic when I go out, so I decided to buy another battery. I bought this from Amazon and this one lasts much more. I am overall happy with this.

EN-EL8 Rechargeable Li-ion Battery

18 March 2006
  • Summary: This battery purchase is a backup battery. The Nikon EN-EL8 battery is very compact making it practical to carry several. Unfortunately, my camera only accepts this battery making my prior Nikon rechargeables (3) obsolete.
  • Pros: Compact design, quick charge capability
  • Cons: Is not compatible with prior Nikon digital camera battery (I have three of them, EN-EL2)

Better than expected

  • Summary: Cheap - I can buy 8 for the price of a real Nikon, charges quickly and works fine. What more can I say. It does what it is meant to do. The seller sells it as an OEM, so it may be an issue for pricegrabber rebates. And the product page does not state it is OEM.
  • Pros: Cheap, Economical shipping.
  • Cons: None.
