MH-18a Quick Charger 3.3 5 3 3
In response to the person from Columbia, SC To the person in Columbia, SC that gave the negative review. The MH-18a charger is the correct charger for your EN-EL3e battery. It sounds like your issue is the battery pack itself not the charger. I am a camera tech for a large photography company (200 plus traveling studios), we use this charger and battery combo in every studio. I have had a few of these batteries that have failed recently and they are doing this exact same thing. Charger blinks for a short time then goes back to a solid light. Of the three contact points on the battery pack, only two are actually "charge points". If you look at the battery you will see the contacts are labeled as + - and "S". The S contact is the center contact, it is NOT used for charging the battery. April 4, 2011
It works fine with a D80 Why would Nikon sell/advertise this charger for the D80 if it did not work with it? This is a good charger, however if you leave your battery out too long and it becomes undercharged, this charger will blink 5 times (I think 4 but whatever) and not charge the battery. Luckily for me I have a special universal charger, and gave it a quick initial charge, and now the MH-18a is good to go. Take care of your batteries, and your batteries will take care of you.

Does not work with D80! I was really anxious to receive my charger from Amazon to begin using my D80 again after not being able to find the original battery charger for months. After inserting the battery in the new charger, the charger blinked about 5 times then Immediately displayed a solid amber light. This happened every time I inserted the battery.I left the battery in the charger over night. STILL NOT CHARGED! I then noticed that the D80 battery has three chargeable points of contact but the charger itself only has two!!! Returning it today!!!! March 18, 2011

I'm traveling to Ireland this spring. I have a Nikon Quick Charger MH-18a with a cord attached that's labeled for US outlets. I just want to be sure that all I need is a plug adapter. Or do I need to use a voltage converter as well?

Answer: 
Yes, Nikon Digital SLR cameras have an auto switching (from 100v to 240V 50hz/60hz) battery charger that will work in most countries around the world. A/C adapters have similar characteristics. Always check the specification plate on your other battery chargers or A/C adapters as third party products may not support dual voltage systems. We do not suggest the use of third party battery chargers and A/C adapters with Nikon equipment.

Note that the cord included with the Nikon charger or A/C adapter is designed for 110 volt use only. A power cord suitable for the local power system should be obtained on arrival, most airport shops and computer suppliers will carry these items which are typically used for laptop conmputer power supply connections. Be sure that the new cord you buy fits the Nikon adapter you wish to use it with and that it is rated for the voltage in your new location. While not recommended, a simple plug adapter may be used, but caution should be taken as the cord Nikon supplies is not rated for the higher voltage and may heat or fail.

Hi, I am going on a 3 week backpacking trip this summer and will be using my Nikon D90 all along to shoot films and images. However, this can only be possible with a solar panel... and I do not know how to (or if it is even possible) charge my EN-EL3e batteries with this charger via a solar panel. Can you give me some information, examples and/or ideas that would help me out with this problem? Thank you very much!

Answer: 
You can setup a solar recharge system but not with the MH-18a. You will have to get a third party charger. Do a search for solar recharge nikon battery and there are several suggestions on how to set t up.

Answer: 
No, you will need to purchase an international plug adapter at your local electronic store or online. They are inexpensive. The electrical outlet used in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland is design differently than the United States.
