What is the difference between an OEM digital camera battery and DuracellDirect's digital camera batteries?
Our DuracellDirect replacement Nikon digital camera batteries are assured to either meet, and possibly exceed, the
specifications of the OEM digital camera battery. This means that you may receive a battery that is even better than
your original. Our products pass several safety qualifications and come with a one year warranty as well. The only
thing to match our batteries’ safety is their durability and quality.
What different types of Nikon digital camera batteries are there?
There are four types of aftermarket digital camera batteries that are currently widely accepted: Li-Ion (Lithium Ion),
Li-Poly (Lithium Polymer), NiMH (Nickel Metal Hydride), and Ni-Cad (Nickel Cadmium). There are differences between
battery types, including size of cells, average life spans, and use-per-charge. However, all types still meet minimum
standards for battery use, and all types are widely accepted because of their safe and astounding uses in battery cells.
Why do Nikon digital camera batteries have different capacities?
The capacity of a digital camera battery is measured in “mAh” (milliampere-hour). The mAh of batteries can change for
many reasons, including: size of the battery, size of the cells, voltage, or number of cells. Typically, a larger size
means longer use, and larger cells mean more power, due to the increase of the number of electrodes and electrolytes.
How long will my Nikon digital camera battery last?
The average life span of our replacement Nikon digital camera batteries is two to three years, or 500 discharge /
charge cycles. Charging an empty battery can take up to four hours, but 80% capacity can be reached within the first
hour of charging, in some cases. On a full charge, expect your digital camera battery to last through several hours
of use. All of these averages can change though, as they are dependent on a number of factors: how old the battery is,
extent of use, whether it has been taken care of properly, amongst many others.
How safe are Nikon digital camera batteries and batteries in general? How do I take care of my Nikon battery?
Our aftermarket Nikon digital camera batteries, along with many of our other products, pass numerous safety tests to
ensure that customers get the quality products that they deserve. These safety certifications include UL, FCC, CE, and RoHS.
In order to take care of your replacement digital camera battery, avoid exposing it to certain extreme elements. This
includes an abundance of heat (direct sunlight, or leaving it inside of a warm car), freezing temperatures, and
especially any contact with water. Avoid causing physical damage to your digital camera battery as well: do not throw,
hit, or drop the battery. Also, do not attempt to take apart the battery. Any of these actions have the probability of
damaging the digital camera battery or otherwise causing it to become defective. If you spot any leaks coming out from
the battery, recycle it properly at your nearest recycling center.
