Most Liked Positive Review


The first rechargable I've liked

This is the first rechargeable battery that I've liked. They last a very long time, charge well and I can use these in my D90 and future D300s and D700. I hate having to carry different batteries for everything, these make things easier.


Most Liked Negative Review



Nikon advertises this battery as being able to last for 1800 shots. However, this is extremely misleading. The only possible way to get anywhere near the advertised number of shots is to take low resolution photos, turning off the LCD altogether, and backing off on other settings. For most photographers, plan on 250-400 shots max using your LCD and shooting in RAW.

Nikon quality and like new


from florida  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I waited until adorama had one in stock. original nikon batteries are much better than the generic ones. Not my first used item and in my experience adorama has always been very true to their rating system.


Excellent product.


from Shelby Township, MI  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Battery charges quickly, and the charge lasts a good while.


Great backup for long photo shoots


from Scottsdale, Az  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I use this on my Nikon D200 often for all day shoots that require swapping the battery during the event. I believe in at least two if not three batteries for those events out in the field. The battery I replaced was about 8 years old, so I think I got all I could out of that one. I hope this one is at least as good.


It's a Nikon Battery


from Sharon, CT  -  Pro Photographer

I have several cameras that take this battery and find it has been very reliable. Not much else to say, it's a Nikon product.


Lasts & lasts & lasts!


from Lakeland, FL  -  Photo Enthusiast

I have had two of these batteries since 2008 and they are still running strong. I shoot a lot of photos on a consistent basis with my Nikon D-90. I got a third because I'll be camping without electricity for 6 weeks in 10 National Parks and I know I can count on the consistency and durability of this battery so that I won't miss any great shots!




from Philadelphia  -  Photo Enthusiast

Too many lithium fires reported to take chances on a cheap clone of this battery.


I love oem batteries,they last forever.


from Church Point,Louisiana  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I'm a Music Event Photographer and constantly shooting and moving and know I can count on my Nikon Products when in the heat of the moment. I will never use anything but Nikon components because of their awesome reputation in the Professional Photographic World...they're a little costly up front but worth every penny when it comes to capturing those special moments. I'm Pro Nikon all the way...thanx.


I would buy this product again


from Rome NY  -  Photo Enthusiast

Great battery life


Excellent product


from NY  -  Pro Photographer

I only buy Nikon batteries. I rely on them to work and they do not ever fail me.


Always reliable


from The Sunshine State  -  Photo Enthusiast

I use these batteries in my Nikon DSLRs and they are invaluable...even if they do not last forever. Adorama had the best price for the OEM battery, fast shipping, and excellent service. You cannot ask for more than that!


Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
DAVID H  Chose this as a spare to carry with me at all times in my camera bag.
Carmen M  The battery I have now is 1800mAh, if I buy the same one but with 2000mAh is that OK for use with the D80?
KENNEDY K  If its Nikon, if it fits it works & should last a bit longer. I've even had good luck with Adorama's brand X batteries for Nikon they are not as heavy as Nikon sooo something in there is not the same either something is left out or they are a more advanced recipe. I don't know but they work OK and seem to last OK too certainly good enough for a spare, which you barely need since the original battery takes a lot of pictures and charges up fairly quickly. Good luck.
Ike W  On the site, it mentions that there are two used EN-EL3e batteries, one's condition is rated "E", while the other is rated "E+". Do you happen to know how much life is left in either of the two used batteries?
STEPHEN R  Nikon Batteries are very good batteries. I have two batteries that I have been using for over 5 years and the still measure as new batteries. I am sure if there is a problem Adorama will stand be hine the product.
