Works With My D3200!
on July 18, 2013
Received These batteries in the mail today, I popped them in the my Nikon D3200 right away to make sure they would work.
They Were Flawless and Fully Charged. I Couldn't ask for anything more. Price was right, Shipping was fast. Butterfly Photo and Amazon are Doing it the right way! It Will Be Nice two have 2 extra batteries. I Don't know how the how long they last yet, but read my thoughts on rechargeable batteries at the end.
Pro's: Didn't have to pay for the Nikon name, and received nearly the same product at a fraction of the Cost
The Charger Came with an adapter that will allow me to charge in my car with what used to be called a "Cigarette Lighter", but is now just called a 12 volt power port. That Will probably come in handy!
Con: the travel charger only uses 2 pins to charge, Nikon OEM wall charger uses all 5 pins on the battery to charge. Based on my limited knowledge two of the pins are used to sense the actual battery voltage While two more are used for charging so the smart charger Will Not "bake" your batteries, so it is theoretically possible based on what I think I know to shorten the life of your battery by using the included charger.
My General Experience over the years is that Having A GOOD CHARGER Is The Most Important Part Of ANY Rechargeable Battery. I'll use a Smart charger whenever possible. I plug Cheap chargers into a timer so I don't fry batteries.
