Help...I've come across various sites with various types of en-el1 battery replacements:

Batterybarn.com: 7.4v, 800 mah $26

Batteriespack.com: 7.4, 720 $16

Keybattery.com: 7.4 720 $12 or 800 $18

Bestbuy: Digipower brand DQK-NKL1 $50

Circuitcity: Digipower brand DPS-BPNKL1 $40

So...my question is if i get a non-oem brand replacement battery will i be ok going this route? I'd like to get a battery with more mah's so i can charge less often (but takes longer to charge....) Will like after 1 or 2 years this 'stronger' battery suddenly conk out on me?

Please help me here...also if you know any other sites on the web with comparable prices please list them.

P.S. I already own a Digipower 9000 external battery power pack....and it's a workhorse indeed! :O :|

Hello -

I own a Coolpix 4500 which uses the EN-EL1 batteries. I bought a couple of the generic batteries and had no problem with them. I haven't had them for over a year though. If I recall, most li-ion batteries only last about 2 to 3 years before they start to loose their charge. I noticed that both Batteriespack.com and Batterybarn.com offer a one year warranty (if that means anything).

Personally, I suggest that you go to http://thomasdistributing.us/display...t.asp?which=51

A lot of people buy batteries from them (including myself) and had great service. They have a Lenmar battery with a 3 year warranty for $21.58.

Good luck!
