Most Liked Positive Review



I received the D5000 camera and battery in December, 2010. The battery has been reliable and the use between charges seems more than adequate. With greater use of the camera, I have found the need for a second battery in the event I am in a remote location without means for recharge.

Fast service, good prices, and reliable dealers.


I would buy this product again. Adorama


The customer service is great. Adorama is one of my favorite camera sites.


Excellent Battary (4 years of use)


This is an oustanding battery, originally when I picked out my D3000 thought I was going to have to buy a second battary for a backup. The battery system is so efficient I have just been using the single battery. It has been about 4 years now in service and shows no signs of faultering. With a manual lens not shooting a lot of flash I have gotten over 1000 frames out of this battery before exausting its charge. Recharge is about 1 hour 15 minutes.


Nikon EN-EL9a Battery


I needed a backup battery for an upcoming wedding I was shooting and I almost made it through the whole wedding and reception before having to change batteries, the batteries did their job and never once let me down!!


Good but expensive


I bought this battery for my Nikon D3000. This battery is expensive, but it is a Nikon brand. I have another back up battery, Duracell DR9673, which works just as good as this one, and cost only half of the price Nikon asked for. However, I put this Duracell DR9673 mainly in my battery grip, not in the camera body. I only put Nikon battery in the camera body, because I don't want to worry too much about battery leakage in the camera. This is the only reason why I'd pay for this high price Nikon battery. Sometimes I don't want to carry the bulky battery grip while traveling, having assurance of safety on my gadget is priority to me. A broken camera will ruin your vacation. If you don't mind the cost, this one is perfect. Reliable. Work as described. If you think price is a big factor, consider Duracell DR9673, work the same. Furthermore, if you would spend a little bit more money $18~$50 on a battery grip for your camera, you will have a freedom of using generic batteries, even cheap AA batteries, which saves even more money. And the camera looks good! It all depends on how you look at your budget, priority, functionality, brand image, etc. Not a cheap product, but reliable. That's all about it.


Never let me down


Wonderful ! Never any issues and I love I can put it on the charger last minute and get moving with a good charge.


Good extra battery to have


Needed a second battery after misplacing my second one. Glad found it for a good price.


Works just perfect!


This is my back up battery and I need to know that it will hold a charge and be a fast re-charge. It is definately that!


Yes, this is a Nikon battery


I gave this as a second battery with a camera outfit. As others have said, it is good - and you really should - have a 2nd battery just in case. The person who received the camera wound up using the 2nd battery in the middle of shooting as he forgot to check the camera to see how much life was left on the battery already in the camera. We have found that he can take several hundred photos before changing out. And this is, as it is stamped on the battery - a Nikon battery.


Don't buy the knock-offs


I bought the knock-off as a battery backup as well as the Nikon brand. A year later the knock off had literally exploded and the Nikon is still working well. Both were in the same camera case and both subject to the exact some conditions. Needless to say I picked up a 2nd Nikon battery backup.

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
JASON P  I needed another one and Adorama is awesome!
Shopper  Is this the FACTORY NIKON battery or an off-brand replacement?
JOHN H  Yes it is the factory battery and I would never buy anything but factory. They are exceptional as far as shots taken before rechargeing and # of recharge cycles before needing replacement.
