5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing value for money, 16 May 2009

This review is from: Ex-Pro High Power Plus+ 1100mAh Lithium Ion Digital Camera Replacement Battery for Nikon D60/D40/D40X/D3000/D5000 (Camera)
Hi to all,

I recently purchased this product from amazon.co.uk and I cant fault the speed with which it arrived and the fact I was not charged obscene amounts of postal charges.
I have had the battery as a spare for the last 3 weeks now, I have charged it once (when arrived) but it has been in my camera the whole time. It has not lost its charge and I even left my camera on in the case for 3 hours, came back to it and it still had loads of battery. (granted it went onto standby after 20 minutes but still)
As mentioned in the other reviews this product is not 1100mAH it is actually 1000mAH. The origonal Nikon battery is also 1000mAH anyway so no harm done.
The most important thing to consider when purchasing this product is the price, ITS SOOOOO CHEAP! the price of a genuine Nikon battery is about 43.GBP with postal fee. The price of this product from amazon with postage is 9.40GBP I believe is what I paid all in.
So to conclude a seemingly identical battery for a far cheaper price.
You would be barking mad not to get this product if you need a replacement or spare.
Hope this review helps

"The most important thing to consider when purchasing this product is the price," Wrong.

The most important thing to consider when buying batteries for cameras is whether they will work a camera when you need them to and for a reasonable amount of time. The 'saving' can - and most likely will - come back and bite you if the battery turns out to be sub-standard, as most of these 3rd party batts are.

I am looking around the 3rd-party battery suppliers for one that I think will get somewhere near the original Nikon performance. There is just one - Uniross. This is a major battery manufacturer, from deaf-aid buttons to vehicle batts. As a battery manufacturer, they have cred.

If your Ex-Pro lasts as long as a Nikon, you have done well. My experience with two 3rd-party batts for a Canon is that they are now dead, at half the age of the original Canon batt, which is still delivering full power and taking a full charge.

I note that Ex-Pro is an own-label outfit that sells all sorts of stuff. They buy batts from whoever and stick a label on them. Note that at the price they are charging, imagine what they buy them in for - peanuts. Well, who wants to be a monkey?

The saving on these 3rd-party batteries seems too good to be true. My own and many others' experience is that it is indeed too good to be true. The fact that this supplier is offering a 2 year warranty is encouraging but not convincing, in my view. What use a warranty when you're holding a dead camera?

How is the battery holding up now? Still worth the price?
