Just as good....(well, not any more)

....if not better than the high priced Nikon battery. I've had no problems with this "generic" battery, and,in fact, it seems to be outlasting the charge of the Nikon. I'll be buying another one for back up

That is what I said back in February, 2013. As I have seen others state on here, this battery does not work with the Nikon D5100. Oh, maybe for a few times, but then it mysteriously becomes incompatible with the camera.
Don't get caught off guard as I did. I was 3000 miles from home in a foreign country and in a fairly remote area. I had made a special trip to an area at night and was HIGHLY disappointed when after a couple of shots I got a camera error stating, "this battery is not compatible with the camera". At that time I did not have a back up battery with me (my Nikon battery was charging at the time) and I lost the opportunity I had made for this special trip.
Don't be fooled by the lower price. If you have a high end or semi high end camera, spend the extra $15.00 and get the real deal.
I'd hate to see others fall into the same situation I did.
