5.0 out of 5 stars It is a Nikon Battery!!, June 22, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Nikon EN-EL14 Rechargeable Li-Ion Battery for Select Nikon DSLR Cameras (Retail Package) (Camera)
So I had to write this review after receiving this item just yesterday. Mostly in response to the 3 one star reviews that claim this item is not a Nikon item and is an aftermarket bettery instead. I'm not sure why if you did order this item you got an aftermarket item because the one I had delivered yesterday is in fact a Nikon brand and came in the official Nikon Package and was made in Japan and not China as the one review stated. So if you are looking for this battery for your Nikon camera rest easy you will get an official replacement and not some knock off.

I check the customer who voted one star on this battery because theyve got a knock off one... When u get yours it says "NIkon Brand"?

Yeah, but is it really worth EIGHTY DOLLARS for a battery?????
Don't you feel like you've been screwed?

This is interesting because my original Nikon en-el14 that came with the camera states made in china finished in Malaysia, and the one I bought from amazon stated the same. I still have wrote the company because Nikon is very very stringent about use of Nikon only products. they say they have had batteries catch on fire that were pirated or 3rd party. the battery I purchased from amazon was exactly the same except for one thing both say Nikon front and back and have the official hologram sticker but amazon one says "os elec" and the one that came with camera says "Nikon" so i'm a little curious. Its also fishy (I believe you and the others why would they lie), that the fact that some are different yours made in japan ours china/Malaysia why? I will update with my findings once I receive an answer. I am also going to call Nikon they may due to pricing have several producers of the batteries, a lot of companies don't make every single product that goes with there cameras, same goes with TV's etc. etc.. I just don't want to ruin such an expensive device that has take me years to save up for it would be over for me if it got ruined.

Of COURSE Nikon says aftermarket batteries have caught on fire. They want you to buy THEIR battery and pay their ASININE gouging price.
Problem is they put a chip in their battery that the camera must read or the camera won't work.
If you buy a battery grip that holds two batteries you CAN use an aftermarket battery that cost less than FIVE BUCKS on Amazon but you have to insert an "official" Nikon battery first.(even a dead one)
I LOVE Nikon but they SCREW their loyal customers with this battery scam.

Well I didnt know that about the chip. Apparently I got a genuine battery because it works. Thanks for the info. As for their money making shenanigans that seems to be typical of alot of big name brand companies. Im a little too carfull though when ive spent over 1000 for a camera for piece of mind if anything I try to get the original product that way if it screws up they will have to pay.

when you buy a $600 camera (at the least), why not?

Thank you for your review! I have now determined that buying a Nikon branded battery is unfairly expensive and unnecessary. I will be going with a 3rd party battery.

please read my other post, scttzz (scott a griswold) you can go 3rd party but if it fails they will know you had a 3rd party battery their cameras have chips in them that register a log of what battery and who knows what else you connect so when you send it back they will know if you used a genuine nikon product (regardless of where it is manufactured) or a 3rd party product and of coarse reject the warrenty coverage.

mine came in "official" nikon packaging too "this battery cannot be used choose battery designated for this camera", in other words a dud

I was happy with my Nikon D3200 camera until I tried to use my replacement (aftermarket) battery and seen the message saying "This battery cannot be used. Please use battery designed for this product"

I refuse to buy another Nikon product because of these chips they put in their batteries.
