Hopefully this review will help everyone buying this battery for a D5100.
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.

If you liked this review please "Like" it.

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).

While this is a great price Nikon has a built in feature that will not recognize these after market battery. Item should be removed from Amazon because it does not work. I purchased two for my Nikon D3100 and could not get them to work.

They will work but you have to fool the camera body into thinking that they are Nikon batteries. You do this by purchasing a "battery power grip" connect it to the bottom of the camera load your nikon battery in and turn on. Then add one of these batteries in the empty battery slot (there are 2 slots total); then remove the nikon battery and put another one of these battteries in its place. For under $15 dollars you have replaced a $50+ nikon battery which you would keep on hand as a backup when the other batteries are discharged. I am running with 4 aftermarket batteries and one nikon battery.

Simply does not work.

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.

I suspect the seller will change the description or do something with the batteries to make it work with Nikon P7000. I ordered two and neither were recognized by Nikon P7000. Problem most likely is not with battery cells but with Nikon not playing nice with non-OEM batteries (i.e. embedded recognition chip in the genuine Nikon stuff not found in off-brands ...) Until the fix is found, I don't recommend getting these for P7000, for now. P7000 was updated with latest firmware update version 1.2 prior to inserting the batteries.

Seller was nice enough to refund the shipping charge too.

While newer Nikons, including my D5100, will reject this item, it works well with my video light and arrived quickly after ordered.

If you're using custom firmware, you probably won't run into the OEM verification I did.

Will only work if you're using the optional aftermarket battery grip.

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.
