I'm looking into getting a few more EN-EL4s and EN-EL3es and I was wondering if anyone here has past experiences with any of the 3rd party batteries? Good? Bad? Horrible?
I had a few 3rd party EN-EL3 back when I had my D70 and they seem to work very well. Let me know your thoughts!

Thanks!

I've been very happy with the Synergy brand batteries I've ordered from BOCA.

Good price and performance, they are usually a higher mAh rating which is always nice.

Check out www.batterybarn.com. I have gotten 3rd party (Vidpro) EN-EL3e's from them and they work great - 1700mah. $33.95 with free shipping.

They also have 3rd party (Vidpro) EN-EL4's 2000mah for $49.95 free ship.

Hmmm, i've heard of longevity issues with 3rd party batts. Just curious, how long has yours been working 'like a champ'?
Well, I had some crazy generic looking EN-EL3s before when I had my D70 and they've held up for over 1 year without a problem (until I lost the camera + gear).

LOL, man... how did you know I was looking for EN-EL4s as well ;) (putting on my tin hat)

Thanks everyone for the input!

Check out www.thomasdistributing.com. I bought a clone battery from them for my D70. It worked beautifully and lasted longer than the OEM Nikon battery. I believe the brand was Lenmar.

Cheers!
