I got mine last week. Seem to last much longer than my 1800s. I got over 475 pics with flash in my Dimage 5. But, I also got a new charger wich could also be a factor.

I purchased the package from Newegg with a charger and eight batteries then added 4 more batteries. Delivery was next day. I loaded them up in my new Nikon 5700 battery pack and got zip, zero - nada when I went to power up. What do they say dead on arrival? Didn't know if it was the Nikon pack or the batteries or what. They do not meet the LR-6 specification required by Nikon. I called IPOWERUS and the guy on the phone said to rip the plastic cover off the batteries - took about two minutes apiece and voila! My CoolPix now rocks for hours on end.

Yeah looks like they raised the price and are also out of stock. I ordered my on 11/25 and received them on 11/29.

I guess you can either wait or pay a little more to order from Thomas Distributing at http://www.thomas-distributing.com/i..._batteries.htm

IMHO they seem to be a lot better. I tried them on the Minolta F100 and got >170 shots, all with LCD, flash, and frequent review using LCD (and they haven't run out of juice yet!) For comparison purpose, Minolta has rated this camera 120 pictures (with LCD & flash) with 1700mAH batteries.

Also, the charger does make a big difference on the performance of the batteries. I noticed that if I charge them using the Kodak MAX K2000 charger, the performance is worst than the Maha 204F.
