Default Nikon battery warning (from Nikon)

Saw this while tracking down something else:

http://www.dpreview.com/news/0311/03...nbatteries.asp

It looks like someone is taking non Nikon batteries and rebranding them as nikon and selling them for a hefty profit. Nasty.

I'm going to post this information in the batteries, Nikon and Nikon DSLR forum as well.

Yes, but anyone paying a hefty extra for Nikon branded batteries is a pigeon waiting to be plucked so no need for excessive sympathy.

In generally I agree (my second battery is a knock-off, not a real Canon.) But there are differences. One of the trends seems to be that the OEM batteries seem to have better quality control. I've never heard anyone say that their OEM battery stopped taking a charge after 6 months. I've heard that said several times about non-OEM batteries.

So for some people (mostly professionals, I bet) this does matter.
