First off, this is a great product and works like a charm if you know how to "trick" the camera into thinking it is an OEM battery.
THIS BATTERY IS NOT MEANT TO COMPLETELY REPLACE THE NIKON BRAND D5100 BATTERY.
First get a Battery Grip for the D5100, I know it may cost $20-$30, but in the end you will save a lot of $$. Once you get the battery grip, put in your Nikon branded battery. The camera will then do a handshake with the camera as indicated by the blink(ing) of the green LED by the navigation pad to the right of the screen. Once this is done, DO NOT REMOVE the OEM BATTERY! Insert the generic battery (fully charged) into the battery grip. Upon doing so you can swap out your NIKON brand OEM battery with another of these generics. IF THE CAMERA ever loses complete battery power you WILL have to reinsert the Nikon OEM battery and do the process over. If you think that might be a pain, its not. It is a matter of seconds to do.
I went on a week vacation with 4 of these, and not once lost power to my camera and over 3,000 pictures later still have yet to loose power and start over again. You will not be dissatisfied with this product if you follow my instructions.

I also bought the batteries from BestDealUSA not the other guy(s).
The battery grip I used, recommended to not get a different result (so it works the way I say it does).
Neewer Multi-Power Vertical Battery Grip Hand Pack for Nikon DSLR D5100 EN-EL14
There is a review here about "fooling your camera". 5 stars if you have to buy extra hardware and play a trick to make it work?! And what is different about this battery that makes it not work out of the box, and might it cause damage to the camera that is fooled?
I'm also in the "you get what you pay for - lesson learned" category.
Seller was nice enough to refund the shipping charge too.
If you're using custom firmware, you probably won't run into the OEM verification I did.
NOTE: you CANNOT use this battery as a direct replacement for an OEM Nikon battery.
If you insert both the aftermarket & Nikon batteries at the same time & connect your grip to the camera, you're display will read 'cannot use the battery/inserted battery is unusable/please insert correct battery'.
Follow these steps & you'll be running on 2 batteries instead of one!!
Before connecting battery grip (or remove if necessary), place the Nikon battery in the right hand slot (closest to chamber connection point of grip).
Once the Nikon battery is in place, go ahead & connect the battery grip.
Turn the camera on & the chip inside the Nikon battery will be detected and the display screen will perform it's normal process of displaying your camera's settings.
Turn the camera back off, insert the aftermarket battery in the left hand slot, turn the camera on & you should be good to go!!
Once the Nikon battery is depleted, you can still run the camera using the aftermarket battery, so if you have the option to remove the Nikon battery for charging purposes, no worries.
