WOW! they even came "charged". The batteries were for my Nikon camera, and were half the cost of the OEM brand. They charge quickly, hold the charge well, and power my camera every bit as well as the expensive ones from Nikon. The Charger was a Bonus! Now I have the option to charge more than one battery ( using the original + this one ) and I can use this one to charge camera batteries in my truck. I Very Happy with it. Wish I'd have bought it long ago. If you're putting up with short battery life or not enough batteries...DO THIS! I wish I could "Double" Highly Recommend it!
Excellent price, first off. Product was shipped quickly, packaging was excellent, and so far I'm thrilled with the performance of the batteries. Fully charged, this battery seems to be lasting just as long as my Nikon battery. I hesitated to use a non-Nikon product in my Nikon D3300, but after research and then use, my hesitation has been replaced with complete satisfaction. I highly recommend Powerextra if you're looking for camera batteries. Backup batteries are a MUST in my opinion!
UPDATE: It's been well over a year since I purchased these batteries, and my 5 stars stand: they have withstood temperature changes (including sitting in my trunk for days during the hot southern Florida summer!) and months of non-use, and yet they still have a full charge every time I need them. They are JUST as good as my Nikon battery!! Best purchase I've stumbled across!
charger works but doesn't give any indication the charging is complete. the amber light never changes. So that's a bummer. Otherwise the batteries came fully charged so that was nice. I'm giving it 3 stars for now given the charger doesn't do what I'd like.
Update: Have been emailed twice by Powerextra about testing a new device but the return email goes nowhere apparently.
Update 4/14/17: Powerextra is shipping me a new charger to test as first one seems defective. Great customer service and I am very thankful for their diligence to get me the new device. Amazon was not returning my emails to them at all so we had to find another way to make that happen. Bad Amazon!!
Works pefectly with my NIKON d3200. Oem battery was not charging, wasnt sure if orig battery dead or nikon charger. Got this kit while waiting for new oem battery. Battery works, and the charger recharged my dead oem battery too. So, thats an unexpected wow. Recommended so far. Will follow up if anything blows up, but very happy so far after reading mixed reviews for all aftermarket nikon type batteries. (edit: pardon typos; did review on ipad) ;-)
I loaned my Nikon camera to my Robotics photographer. She lost the charger for the camera and camera went dead. So I ordered this on to replace the lost one. Best part of this one is that you can charge batteries in your car when you are on vacation so you won't miss that special shot of a Moose in the lake feeding. Nice replacement as it comes with two batteries and the +12 Volt DC charger cable.
These batteries are even more powerful than my original Nikon Batteries, they were 1030m Ah and these really rock at 1500m Ah...these last a long time also, way longer than my originals. It has only been a week but so far these batteries are everything I expected and more. I will see how they hold up for the next few weeks/ months and report back...until then I am shooting all over with these batteries.... I was also able to use them in my D5100 with a battery grip...I am using a D5500 with battery grip now and everything is great !!!! AND.... they even came charged ! How cool is that??
Really wanted these to work. I charged up my batteries on Tuesday, May 23rd for use on Wednesday the 24th. They appeared to be charged up when I removed each one from the charger but they were not. One was at 50 and the other wasn't even that. Quite disappointed as I had a shoot to do on Friday and not having extra batteries really can complicate matters. **Update Again** Spoke with company rep who apologized and immediately sent out replacement batteries that seem to be working well! It's nice to see a seller who cares about Customer Satisfaction!!!
I bought this for a Nikon 3200. I got the camera on eBay and it came with no charger. I just picked up the cheapest one I could find (this one) and bonus it came with an extra battery. The charge seems to hold well and I haven’t had a single issue charging the battery but it seems like it takes a while for it to charge. 2-3 hours when fully dead and the Nikon branded chargers reviews indicate it takes significantly less time.
Pros: 1. Percent I’ll charge it’s battery and the Nikon battery 2. The batteries seem to be well charged and function as intended after charging. 3. I like that it folds flat and fits into a camera bag with ease.
Cons: Charging length is a little too much for my liking. If I had to charge one ASAP it would be a real issue.
After 7 years my original Nikon battery bit the dust, so I needed replacements. I bought these because they came with a charger and I can use it in the car! Very handy for the county fair where we show animals. The battery life is amazing compared to my declining Nikon battery, I should have gotten rid of it a long time ago! I guess I just got used to it only lasting about 10 minutes. The charger works great and is dependable no matter how I plug it in. Very happy with this and would recommend.
