    Not much to say but I need to warn anyone that is looking at a generic battery for their camera. My camera was very expensive so I decided to just buy the Nikon brand battery. It works perfectly as expected. But my friend decided to get some other brand. I believe he spent $12 on it. He thought it was a great deal and it seemed to work fine until one day it melted while in his Nikon D7200. It ruined his camera it fried everything. I'll stick with factory parts from now on I'm glad I spent the extra money on it.

    When I decided to by a replacement battery, I was originally looking to purchase a different brand other than NIKON. After looking a few reviews, I saw that some people had the issue that the knock off replacement didn't work for their Nikon D3400 (which is the camera I have). Therefore, I decided to purchase the original. When I first came to Best Buy's site, they didn't have any in stock so I was really bombed but then I waited about a week and saw that they were in stock so I bought two and they are working perfectly fine in my camera.

    i originally purchased what i thought was a compatible battery for my nikon d3400 (salesrep told me it was compatible for d3400) but found that only the nikon brand (oem) battery will work. when i loaded the compatible version the camera gave an error message that i could not bypass. the nikon battery works with no error, the only difference i found with the part#'s is the nikon battery has an a at the end. (Nikon - En-el14a) the compatible batt has no a. not sure if that makes the difference.

    I bought this battery to supplement the battery that came with my camera. Two weeks after purchase I went on a road trip up Route 66, to the Grand Canyon, Hoover dam, Vegas, pikes peak and other land marks. Throughout the course of the week I took over 2,500 photos with this and the original battery. Never had one issue. Exactly what I'd expect. So you can either go with an off brand and worry about reliability or do as I did, buy this OEM battery and never have an issue.

    DON'T BUY THE 3RD PARTY ONES

    I saw there were a lot of third party batteries and was very tempted to buy them. However my buddy bought three and they all died within a couple of months. That is why you see them having great reviews, they work perfectly at first then can't keep their charge after a couple of months. I know this is an expensive one, but it is worth it. I go on hikes and need to make sure I have at least one back up battery and this one does the job perfectly with no thrills

    I went with the Nikon branded battery because I wanted to make sure Ithat my Nilon D3300 retained a charge that was equal to or better than the one that came with the camera. I was not disappointed. This battery in the Nikon D3300 holds a charge over 5 days after taking many pictures. I do not have the actual numbers but the number of photos taken over a period of a week was very impressive and much better than my Sony a6000.

    I needed a new battery for my DSLR and rather than risk getting a counterfeit battery, I chose to buy at Best Buy. The salesperson gave me a little bit of a hassle price matching during Black Friday weekend but ultimately did it. This is a higher capacity battery than what came with my camera (Nikon - EN-EL14). Note that you might need to upgrade your camera firmware for this battery to work with your camera.

    Nikon states the EN-EL14a provides more photos per charge than the EN-EL14 (although your camera may need a firmware update). I haven't counted photos, but this battery lasts a good while to where I'm very satisfied. You can buy after market batteries much cheaper, but they don't have anywhere near the life of the EN-EL14a. And you can even take advantage of Best Buy's price match guarantee.

    I have both Nikon brand batteries and knock-off brand batteries for my Nikon cameras. The Nikon batteries are superior based on the number of images that one can get from a full charge and also how well it fits in the battery slot. Because I bought three accessories for my new Nikon Cyber-shot RX 100II, I got a 25% off discount. That was a nice discount.

    the Nikon battery is much better then the third party batteries, it lasts much longer and doesn't lose its capacity after multiple charges like third party batteries. Having two of these in a handgrip on my camera really means I can shoot all week on a single charge (about 5000 shots) and it still has plenty of life left.

    Best to stick with Manufacturer Parts

    My Nikon battery started giving me an error message when the camera was a bit over a year old, indicating the battery was third party. It was a genuine Nikon part, but once replaced with another Nikon battery, all my error messages ceased. Good news as that was a simple fix for what looked like some serious hardware issues.

    Nikon - Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Battery for Nikon

    I purchased this battery to augment the battery that was supplied with the D3200 DSLR. The EL14A has an extended battery life as compared the the standard battery. I have discovered that I can get about 100 more shots on the 14A as compared to the 14. More time shooting and less time recharging.

    I wanted to stick with the name brand when it comes to batteries because I can't afford to have issues when I'm out on a job. These batteries charge fast and hold their charge for days under normal conditions and for several hours under heavy demand. Don't risk it! Buy Nikon batteries!!

    I have never had the battery on my d5100 die on me during a shoot. However, during a few extended video productions, I saw the battery power get uncomfortably low. Having a backup provides a measure of comfort. It is not a "fun" accessory, but a necessary one. It works great in my Nikon d5100.

    The first time I used my camera the battery died in the middle of a college graduation. I purchased 2 of these batteries and they worked just like the original. Completely satisfied with the purchase. 1 in the camera and 2 in the bag and I am good to go anywhere. A lesson learned in the basic: keep them charged!

    The battery is perfect. I just got a new camera and wanted a second battery. I've had a tough time with "replacement" batteries before so I decided to go straight for the brand name OEM battery and I couldn't be happier. Battery life is exactly the same as my original one/

    I bought this as an extra battery for my Nikon D5500 and it takes 2hrs to get completely charged from 0 to 100%. Used it as an additional battery for the vacation and continue to use it and carry both the batteries each time and is super useful. You will never miss a moment or a great photo by having an extra battery.

    Purchased this Nikon battery as a replacement for my original battery. It is a genuine Nikon product of the best quality. If you need a replacement for your original battery I highly recommend this one. Absolutely no issues with this replacement battery. Would definitely purchase again without a doubt.

    A backup battery is always nice. Never know when you are going to need one. I did however think it was very expensive ($49.99) for a battery though. There is no reason a battery should be over $25, except that they know we will pay the higher amount to have one.

    Recharges very quick and seems to hold charge for a good while when not using the flash or auto focus a lot. Not pleased with the charger as it does not have a cable to plug it into the wall or surge strip. Time will tell as to duration of battery life using more aggressive photo techniques requiring auto focus and flash.
