There isa thread on the Nikonian site that talks about this problem. It seems to affect few cameras but it looks like the solution is in the camera and not the battery. Most report Nikon replacing a "power board" in the camera under warentee. See if this shortcut works, the thread is still at the top of the D80 forum if it doesn't.

Went back to reseller and they discovery the battery is defected. they change a new battery to me, and so far, it seem working fine already.

After a long shoot yesterday I found the battery gave plenty of power - still at 75% and 206 photos, suggesting up to 800 on a full charge in a single session. That's good.
BUT - is the problem battery drain during standing? A second battery seems to lose it charge slowly but surely, whilst the original EN-EL3 for my D100 just never seems to lose any charge at all.

I'll keep a close watch on it. If necessary I'll have to contact the seller or Nikon.

That's about what I see on mine. Right now it's 162 at 65%, it was last charged 2 weeks ago.
