EN-EL19 Rechargeable Battery
Battery does not last.
I was just given this camera with the battery six weeks ago for my birthday. I have not used it very much - but already the battery is completely dead and will not recharge. I would not recommend this type of battery to anyone.

My son and I and unable to recharge the batteries in our 2 cameras that are only 3 years old! Very frustrating. Do we spend $80 to buy new batteries or do we just buy a new camera? Nikon should replace the batteries free of charge or rename their product as "not" rechargeable.

I received this battery in my 2012 Christmas present - a Coolpix S4200. I love the camera but this battery is a huge loser. It started being unreliable in April 2013 and by May 2013, would not re-charge. I do not take a lot of pcitures - this battery was used at Christmas, New Years and a couple of birthday celebrations - NOT heavily used at all. A rechargeable battery should last YEARS....not under 6 months. Really a disappointment. I expect better from Nikon.

Battery Life about 3-4 mos.
Camera S4100 Coolpix by Nikon was just great until the battery died and would NOT recharge, about 3 mos after purchase.
I missed so many great shots and $40.00 for a new battery? I might as well buy a New Camera--not a Nikon by the way.

Great camera, poor battery!
I love the camera and it takes really good pictures but I bought the camera in August and in three months the battery just died! it wouldnt even try to recharge. The batteries are to expensive to buy a new one every three months!!!

Poor battery but beautiful photos
We recently bought a Coolpix S6400. Beautiful photos but you only get about 50 or so before the battery dies. Missed photos from my father's wedding and on holiday in Thailand. Very frustrating and also annoying when you need to carry a spare battery all the time.

Waste of money
Got a coolpix and was so excited. Took less than 50 pictures and battery will not hold a charge. Got 1 picture of my grandsons first birthday tonight! First and last Nikon for me. They ask you to attach sample pictures! How ironic...if I had pictures I wouldn't be writing this review

Nikon EL-EN 19 is poor
I got this camera for christmas and have hardly used it. Now the battery is completely dead and will not charge. I lost an entire weekend of photo opportunities this past weekend and I'm not happy.
So, do I spend another 30 bucks on a new battery or go and buy myself a new Canon camera??

Went to use camera for girls night out, had everyone posed and ready for the pic, turned on the camera for it to say "battery exhausted" even thoughit was charging over 24 hours. Tried using car charger and still would not gain a charge. Lost out on a lot of great photos. Have had the camera for less than 1 year.

Nikon Battery Is Poor - EN EL-19
Bought S4100 Coolpix for my wife for Christmas 2011 gift. She used the camera very little.
On Mother's Day 5/14/12 ( 4 1/2 months later) she turned camera on and got a "Battery Exhausted"
message. I attempted to recharge it. It will not take a charge. Seems to be a widespread problem.
Its a shame I can't give this product "0 stars". Won't replace it with a "Nikon" brand battery.

After less than a year the battery is toast
Same issues others here describe with not being able to hold a charge. A far cry from the Nikon Battery in the camera that this one replaced, which never had this problem and I had the Camera for over 5 years. You will see similar reviews on other sites.
What happened to the legendary quality I had come to expect from you Mr. Nikon?

I've only had my camera for a few months and the battery went dead and would not recharge.

Didn't last very long.
I got the camera for Christmas and work find until the battery ran all the way down. Once it ran all the way down, it wouldn't recharge at all. Disappointing!

LA BATERIA ES EL PROBLEMA !!!
COMPRE MI CAMARA COLPIX 4300 EN JUNIO 2012, EXCELENTE PRODUCTO,MUY BUENAS FOTOS Y VIDEOS,PERO YA HE TENIDO QUE CAMBIAR TRES VECES LA BATERIA EN-EL19 ,QUE EN UN MOMENTO INESPERADO SE MUERE Y NO TOMA MAS CARGA. SI BIEN NIKON NO FABRICA LA BATERIA DEBERIA RESPONDER POR ESTE PRODUCTO QUE SE INCLUYE EN LA COMPRA DE LA CAMARA.
