These rechargeable batteries provide extended life and consistent power, even in colder conditions.
The battery is charged using the MH-23 quick charger.
The Nikon EN-EL9a Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Battery provides 7.2v of power and can store 1080mAh of power, which translates into over 200 shots on a charge.
Used together with your Nikon D-SLR, the camera's fuel gauge accurately displays the remaining charge and number of shots since the last charging.
EN-EL9a Rechargeable Li-ion Battery 5 5 1 1
Reliable I received the D5000 camera and battery in December, 2010. The battery has been reliable and the use between charges seems more than adequate. With greater use of the camera, I have found the need for a second battery in the event I am in a remote location without means for recharge. September 15, 2011

I am trying to charge EN-EL9a ( D3000 ) using MH-23 charger but amber light keeps blinking when plugged-in and battery does not get charged. Is this potentially a bad battery or the charger? I have ensured that battery is plugged-in correctly and have tried different sockets.

Please help

Thanks,

Answer: 
When the amber charge light on the MH-23 is flashing it means that the EN-EL9a battery is in the process of charging. When the amber light remains lit and doesn't flash it indicates a charged battery. About one hour and forty minutes are required to fully recharge a battery when no charge remains. If the battery has been in the charger for a long period of time and the light continues to flash it could mean that your battery is in need of replacement.

Is this battery safe to use in my camera and charger?

I have a EN-EL9 battery and was wondering if it is compatible with my D3000 camera and charger? On an early post in the product forum, it was mentioned that the specs of the two batteries are:
el9a : 7.2v*1080ma=7.8wh
el9: 7.4v*1000ma=7.4wh

But the info on the EN-EL9 battery I have is:
el9: 7.4v*1150mAh and nothing else
Does this make a difference and is it safe to use?

Answer: 
Two batteries will work with the D3000, the EN-EL9 (7.4 volts 1000 mAh) and the EN-EL9a(7.2 volts and 1080 mAh) The battery you list may work but I would rather use a genuine Nikon replacement and not risk damaging my camera.
