Didn't work with Nikon D5200, horrible customer service
on July 21, 2013
PRODUCT DEFECTIVE: These batteries did not work with my Nikon. I called Nikon and they advised that cheap generic batteries often do not copy the electronic chip properly such that the camera will not recognize them.
SERVICE VERY POOR: I returned the batteries and wrote an Amazon review that was not horrible, it just said these batteries wouldn't work. Eli from Big Mike's (the seller) called me and advised he would send a replacement battery as a courtesy, and literally asked me to sit at the computer and delete my review while he was on the phone because it dinged their company's Amazon rank, and he was going to make good. He was rudely pushy about it, but I consented to delete the first review because as he pointed out, I could always write a negative review if he did not follow through. Twelve calendar days later, no battery, and now you're reading my negative review. If you see positive reviews on Big Mike's the question to ask is: how many negative reviews did they bully their customers into removing?
So, 1 star for this product not working.
If I could, 0 stars for customer service.
The good news is that Amazon controls the returns and refunds for their sellers so I was able to get a refund.
