Very Good Battery

I have this battery in my Coolpix P500 , I have taken over 200 Shots in daylight with the battery, Even in night with the flasher, i have taken over 100 Photos. I need an extra battery to keep with me.

poor battery-will let you down quickly

This was the battery supplied with my nikon coolpix P-6000. It did not hold the charge. I thought that it was the camera. Nikon reps told me to remove the battery when the camera was not in use but this did not help. I tried the Adorama version of the battery and had no problems shooting about 200 pics with it. Now I have a spare Adorama battery and both work wonderfully. So it was not the camera but Nikon's lousy battery.

Batteries Expanded


from California, USA

In P510, purchased Nov. 2012, both batteries (original with camera, spare purchased same time) have expanded, bulging in the middle. Very difficult to remove them from camera. Charger indicates they still recharge, but will see how long charge lasts. Not a lot of photos taken with either battery. Battery should (1) last longer with minimal photos taken and (2) definitely not expand, indicating an internal failure.

Battery expanded


from NJ

I tried to change my battery and it had expanded, bulging in the middle, and was difficult to extract from the camera. It is now useless. Luckily I have a spare, but will have to buy another spare for future use


Poor life span


from Undisclosed

This is one of the worst batteries I've ever owned. It really doesn't last long at all. Had I known this beforehand, I would not have bought the camera. I should have stuck with Canon!


Long-lasting, does a great job.


from Oregon  -  Photo Enthusiast

I buy these batteries two at a time to always have a fresh one handy. I use them in my Nikon P5000 and find they have a long life and do a good job for me. The set I replaced had been in moderate use for about 5 years. They never died entirely, just needed to be charged more often. A good product!


Works perfectly

Long lasting battery


Great Battery


from 11211  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Backup for two different model cameras. P100 and P5100. No downside.

Swelled up inside the camera during use


from Saint Louis, MO  -  Photo Enthusiast

This is the original battery that came with my P500. Since the P500 does not get many photos before needing a fresh battery I purchased 3 non-Nikon brand spare batteries when the camera was new. Here we are two years later and the non-Nikon batteries are doing just fine; the Nikon EN-EL5 swelled up inside the camera so bad I had to stop sight seeing to find a hardware store to borrow a small screwdriver and needle nose pliers to get it out. Up until that point it performed just fine, but this kind of failure could have killed my camera for the entire trip.


Pretty good battery


from Philadelphia  -  Casual Photographer

Bought a Nikon for a 10-day trip and thought an extra battery might be helpful. Not needed....even though I shot a lot of pictures every day, I never ran down the battery (did charge it every night).


A perfect match for my camera.


from Long Island, NY  -  Casual Photographer

I wanted a manufacturer's recommended battery and you delivered at a fair price without trying to see a knockoff.
