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.
