The poor reviews on this battery are most likely from those who use the LiveView instead of the view finder. If you're using LiveView mode, constantly focusing, and using the pop up flash, then of course you're going to wear out the battery quickly- but that's true for any battery. I use the view finder with the SB-600 speedlight flash and can shoot for 5+ hours before needing to change to my spare. Just remember that the LiveView and pop-up flash use the most power. Omit or limit those, and you'll find the battery lasts anywhere from 3-8 times longer. With any new rechargeable battery, make sure you go through at least a few charge-discharge cycles to get the full potential out of it. Once it's fully charged, leave it on the charger another hour or two. Typically a fully charged status indicates the battery has 85%+ charge; leaving it on the charger a little longer brings it closer to 100%. When it get's low, use the LiveView / flash to wear it down all the way before recharging. It really does help when you go through cycles like this - and an even better reason to have a spare to condition the batteries properly.

Not as good as the camera
I have bought D3100. It's awesome, but its battery isn't. I use it for daylight shooting with no flash or live view and captures no more than 200 images.

Not such a good Battery
from Osaka, Osaka Prefecture, Japan
Comments about Nikon EN-EL14 Rechargeable Li-ion Battery:
Only at this battery in my DSLR for a month and I'd have to tell you that my experience with the EN-EL14 Battery is not a good one. The power for the battery only last about an 1 and 10 minutes hour with continuous use without the LCD screen on but with the LCD screen on and preview your photos, it an 30-45 minute in usage. That's not good at all specially when you have cellphone with better battery technology. Another problem is that the battery will take forever to make a full charge and will go on for hours. The LED on the charger will just blink and blink. Nikon should really work on improving the battery features for the camera. " WAIT, yes I even went out the purchase a battery/GRIP with two batteries and still the results are more usage is 2 hours or little more but not no more than 150 minutes of usages. I do love Nikon but battery improvement is a must

I use this product as a spare battery if my primary camera battery drains off.Holds charge for long time and Ordered Originally from Nikon.Hence I was also able to register it on Nikon website.
Service and delivery comments:
The battery of out of stock and was ordered from Nikon so the delivery was late by 1.5 weeks. But ABT gave me a complementary Spiral winding tape for free.Excellent.

Nikon factory made, with the right amount of mAh and voltage that I was looking for to match the original battery that came with my Nikon D5200 SLR camera, and at a good price.

Battery for DS3200
from Miami, FL, USA
I keep charging for 24 hours but the LED never turn off. So, I don't know if the battery is really charged 100% because the instruction say "The battery will had full charge when the LED turn off.
Always have a backup
from Northwest burbs of Chicago
I discovered years ago never to leave the house without a backup battery. Stick with the reputation of Nikon.
Battery failed quickly
An OEM EN-EL 14 battery came with my D3100 a year ago. It failed after less than ten cycles; now it will not take a charge. I think that is unacceptable and, if I could award this battery a negative-star rating, I would. At least I have a digital "prosumer" pocket camera that takes AA batteries, so I can at least use that until I can get a replacement for the dead battery.
