wow! a battery!
I got an e-mail from Adorama asking me to review this battery I bought, so I figured I'd do so. Yay! It's a battery! It works! In the D3! Gotta go!

I wanted to get a longer lasting battery for a D700 with a vertical grip, but I didn't realize that the EN-EL4A actually requires a completely different charger and vertical grip. As a result I needed to return it -- It can get very expensive to buy all the things that you need to make it work. I am sure it is a good battery because I have found the other Nikon batteries to be fine, but just make sure your charger and camera can handle the larger 4A battery.
Although I think Nikon should lower the price since this battery has been in production for a number of years I still needed one so I paid the price. I bought a USED D3 and the battery that came with it was the original and almost dead.
I use this battery in my Nikon D2X DSLR camera. It holds a full charge beautifully and lasts through many shots before I would have to re-charge it. It is very dependable. You can buy cheaper batteries from companies other than Nikon but I feel it better to buy the original Nikon battery for the optimum results. I am thankful that Adorama has the products that I need for all my equipement. Adorama is dependable in that way. I buy mostly all of my Photographic needs through adorama.
Nice to have a spare battery for my D3
Battery has a good life and is very reliable
Bought this item used and as such it provides best bang for the buck.
I do a lot of shooting so getting a backup battery was a must. My other body is a d7000 which gets about 900 shots per charge but with another battery and battery grip it doubles. But even still its only half of what my d3s gets which is roughly 4400 shots per charge. I bought the backup battery as a just in case scenario but with how few times i have to charge it makes convenience quite high. i never have to worry about running out of juice and i highly recommend the d3s and this battery.
I bought 2 of these for my Nikon D700 and D3 cameras. Works GREAT on both of them. Great value.
Used with the MBD-10 battery grip on the D700. The D700 has a higher maximum continuous frame rate when used with the EN-EL4 battery, and I could squeeze about four or five thousands shots out of this battery. This battery would be great if you absolutely can't afford to recharge or swap your batteries, compared to the default EN-EL3. Quite pricey, but I think you get what you pay for.
I am a professional photographer and need long lasting power supply ...I have always used Nikon products....you can count on them to perform.
