This battery died less than 1 year old. I am a hobby photographer and only use this camera occasionally.
I have a Coolpix S6500. The battery is dead. Went to CA for Christmas. No pictures! Seriously? I couldn´t get it to take a charge. Even borrowed my daughter´s charger just for a Nikon battery thinking I must be doing something wrong. I wasn´t. So it seems I need to buy a new battery. I am so unhappy about that. I always thought this camera took great pictures...but now, it´s not taking any, so it doesn´t matter what they could look like.
How can I send pictures when I can´t take pictures?
I hadn´t had my camera long when the battery died. I tried recharging it several times but it wouldn´t even recharge! Then I found out it cost $40 for another battery! I don´t want to pay $40 for a battery that doesn´t last and then won´t recharge! The biggest disappointment is finding out that Nikon won´t even stand behind their product and warrant the battery! I will never purchase from them again. Sadness.
My first coolpix suddenly stopped working. ´Loading battery (in the camera) didn´t solve the problem.
Because of the price of a new battery in relation to the price of a new camera, i threw away the old camera and bought a new camera.
Again a coolpix, because i love it´s simplicity in relation to the quality of the ´´pictures´´.
However, last week my second coolpix ´´died´´. Same problem!!
Looking for a solution, this link caught my eye:
I haven´t tried the update yet,but if this is the solution:
- should i be glad? I probably threw away a perfect camera!!
I was just given this camera with the battery six weeks ago for my birthday. I have not used it very much - but already the battery is completely dead and will not recharge. I would not recommend this type of battery to anyone.
My son and I and unable to recharge the batteries in our 2 cameras that are only 3 years old! Very frustrating. Do we spend $80 to buy new batteries or do we just buy a new camera? Nikon should replace the batteries free of charge or rename their product as ´´not´´ rechargeable.
I received this battery in my 2012 Christmas present - a Coolpix S4200. I love the camera but this battery is a huge loser. It started being unreliable in April 2013 and by May 2013, would not re-charge. I do not take a lot of pcitures - this battery was used at Christmas, New Years and a couple of birthday celebrations - NOT heavily used at all. A rechargeable battery should last YEARS....not under 6 months. Really a disappointment. I expect better from Nikon.
I thought the battery did not last as long as it should. But, when I went to order one on the internet I was very suprised at the number of complaints regarding it´s life span. I worked hard to earn the money to buy the camera and now I have this added cost that came much too soon. I think all the coolpix owners ought to be given a free battery and an appology.
I have owned this camera for only 4 months and the battery has died. I wanted something compact to take to sporting events and now I have to purchase a new battery to even get it to work.
I think if NIKON can´t gurantee a battery lasting more than a year, they should re-think the use of this type of battery.
