The camera's fuel gauge accurately displays the remaining charge and number of shots since the last charging of the EN-EL3e.

EN-EL3e Rechargeable Li-ion Battery 4.5 5 6 6
My favourite battery This is my Nikon D300 and my two EN-EL3e battery... July 5, 2012
Lots of power, lasts forever I have three batteries that I cycle through my D80. At the end of each day, I take one out of the charger and put the used one in. Truth be told, I probably only need two batteries. My oldest battery is five years old and still holds a charge like it is new. My camera says all three batteries are acting like 100% new. I get about 700 shots per charge (I don't use the flash much). One minor complaint -- the camera could be designed to make it even easier to figure out how to put the battery in. But this is a small point and the designers perhaps have done as much as they could. The charger blinks when it is charging, steady when fully charged. If it were me, I'd have a yellow light and a green light instead. A shorter cord on the charger would make it easier to haul around. I wish the new Nikon's took the same battery. I don't see the need to change the design. April 7, 2012
Exelent like I own the d300s and this battery performs great on it l recently took over 2000 12 bit RAW photos and about 30 mins of 720p video and the battery still had 10% left so overall i cant complain in any way also gonna get another one for the MB D10 i just got today!! December 22, 2010
The first rechargable I've liked This is the first rechargeable battery that I've liked. They last a very long time, charge well and I can use these in my D90 and future D300s and D700. I hate having to carry different batteries for everything, these make things easier. July 28, 2010
This has been a great battery for about almost seven years now. Ihave a D70s and finally need a battery. My name is John i have always been interested in photography.I have had other brands but once i bought a nikon i have had no bad issues with them excellent quality and well made lenses.

Answer: 
Nikon does not make a 2200 mah battery for that camera. That means you're considering a third party battery in your $2000 + camera. If it leaks and destroys your camera who's going to fix it? Buy a Nikon battery!

Answer: 
A battery's capacity is rated in mAh (milli-amp-hours) - assuming two batteries have the same voltage and are of the same type, the higher the number, the longer it should last given the same load.

But... be aware that not all batteries are rated the same - there are differences in how batteries are rated, and some manufacturers tend to "over-rate" their batteries.

So, everything being equal - yes, a 2200 mAh battery should last longer (if that's what you mean by "superior").

Do you have to deplete the battery before you recharge it?
Do you have to fully recharge the battery before using it again?
Do you have to take the battery out of the charger after the charging is complete? (or can you leave it in the charger, say, when charging it over night)

Will non-compliance with the above actions lead to decreased battery life?

Answer: 
You don't have to wait for the battery to drain completely to recharge it again (you will noticed the battery indicator in the camera). If the battery is already charge remove it from the charger (there's no need to leave it overnight).

I am going on a two-week trip abroad. I have a D80 Nikon and two EN-EL3e batteries which I alternate when one needs to be recharged. The batteries are at least 5 years old. How many times can I recharge the battery before it needs to be replaced?

Answer: 
Battery life will vary with condition of the battery, temperature and how is used. Make sure to keep the battery contacts clean since soiled contacts can reduce battery performance. Use the battery immediately after charging sin it will lose their charge if left unused.

Answer: 
I have never heard of a different version of the En-EL3e and yes it should work with the D300. You can use the Nikon EN-EL4a/EN-EL4 with the MB-D10 battery pack See specifications on the Nikon website http://imaging.nikon.com/lineup/dslr/d300s/spec.htm

I have an MH-18A charger wich works fine with my old EN-EL3 battery,
Recently I purchased an EN-EL3e battery, but when I try to charge it, the charger indicator bliks a couple of times and then the light turns off.

Is really charging the battery?
Is there any risk of explosion?

Answer: 
Lead Acid batteries go bad fast but these do not.
However, after a few months the charge will be very low.
