I bought this battery for a new Nikon D5300, and got the following unhelpful (but true!) error when I put it in the camera: "This battery cannot be used. Choose battery designated for use in this camera". My Nikon's using firmware C 1.00 and L 2.000. If you want a similar experience, try using Play Doh or a well crafted block of wood. They are cheaper and will not produce the annoying message, though the Play Doh might be tough to clean. Really, this should no longer be sold.
I have this power2000 battery that I bought for a Nikon D5300. It has problems with the Nikon provided charger, sometimes charging, and sometimes stopping before it's finished with a "fast blinking" led light on the charger that indicates an error. I have experimented with different approaches, and have not found a reliable method. The last time I tried three different times to fully charge the battery. When I put it in my D5300 it indicated a full charge, but after about 1 hr of use (and maybe 200 photos) it suddenly died. I wish I had stayed with a genuine Nikon battery. It's not worth the hassle, and I don't feel I can rely on this replacement battery, mostly because I cannot accurately tell how long the charge will last.
This works just fine with my Nikon D5300. I use Live View a lot and can drain the standard Nikon battery in a day. It seems to take longer to deplete this battery. I'm happy with it so far and would like to get another one.
There is always a concern about using after market parts, especially when electronics are concerned. Sometimes the equipment doesn't recognize after market parts. The price was too appealing to pass up, so I purchased the equivalent Nikon branded battery at the same time. They both charge the same, fit the same and work the same to power the Nikon Df camera.
