Product Description

Product Description

The new EN-EL3A rechargeable lithium-ion battery increases energy capacity to deliver enough power to shoot as many as 2,500 images per charge, all while maintaining the same form factor as the EN-EL3 battery.

From the Manufacturer

EN-EL3A Li-ion Rechargeable Battery for D70, as supplied with D70 Digital SLR camera. Keeping a spare battery on hand ensures that you will always be ready to capture the images you want most. And, while Li-ion rechargeable batteries are less prone to recharge "memory," using the normal complete charge of one battery before recharging will better ensure optimum rechargeable battery life. A freshly charged spare battery allows this and provides uninterrupted photography.

This also works on D50, mine actually came with this unit instead of the EN-EL3. It's slightly higher capacity so that's a nice bonus, plus cheaper then the EN-EL3 so it's a win-win.

I took pictures all day on just one battery so it will last a while. It's good to have as a backup anyhow.

If you're planning to upgrade to the D200, I'd suggest their new EN-EL3e, since that also will work on D50/D70 (but the opposite is not true so don't try to force a EN-EL3 or EN-EL3a into the D200!).

This is actually a 1500mAh battery as opposed to the original EN-EL3 which was "just" 1400.. So a very slight increase. This is the new battery that was released with the D70s, but it does work in the D70.

Check out kenrockwell[dot]com to verify.

Nikon doesn't list the mAh specs for this battery on their website.

I got the EN-EL3a as a free replacement for the recalled EN-EL3 battery. (Check Nikonusa dot com to see if your EN-EL3 has been recalled.) It's perfect for my D70 -- and as another reviewer has pointed out, it gives you slightly more power juice -- about 7% more. If you are looking to buy an official Nikon battery this is a good value. BTW you can find generic brands (also here on Amazon.com) for about $20. I'm not saying whether you should buy a Nikon or a generic OEM one. After all, Nikon screwed up with the EN-EL3 so I can't vouch for their safety.

Like the original EN-EL3 this is likely to be made in China.

I bought a spare battery for my D70s and charged it up one time. Since then, I have been waiting to use my spare but the original (charged hundreds of pictures ago) has been going strong for, literally, months.

Follow the directions. Don't use it until your fully charge and don't recharge until it's run down. This will help maintain battery life.

Good product from a great company.

Did a battery search for the Nikon D80 on Amazon
This is the battery which came up, so I purchased it.
It is not the battery for the D80, though it may be suitable for other model cameras.

Don't want anyone else to purchase the improper battery, it's dissappinting.

If you have a Nikon camera, go for a Nikon battery. There are other brands out there, but after searching through several forums and reading the stories there, I will not put anything else into my camera.

This product works great despite my initial concerns. When I ordered it the description matched my existing Nikon battery. However, when it arrived, what I received was slightly different in configuration with a different but similar model number. I contacted Amazon and received a very courteous and prompt response confirming this was an udate to the older version of the battery I had and that my old charger would work with it. I tried it out and it worked great. Very pleased with the product and the service from Amazon.

Received in a timely manner. Works really well. For some reason my last Nikon EnEl3a battery died on me.
Was about one and half years old. Stopped receiving a charge. Didn't do anything out of line to cause it. I buy Nikon since I was advised by someone I respect to do so. So far it's been a great battery despite the one losing it's charge. I keep two on hand for shooting pictures. The battery works really well in the camera and have had no problems with it other than problem described. Anyone else had this problem?
