    Short battery life

    Posted by Linny on October 29, 2019

    I have ( had ) Nikon cameras´ and this battery life span is the worst I´ve had to deal with. Just like that - poof and it won´t hold a charge! I purchased the camera Sept 2018. I have two other Nikon´s bought in 2017 and they are still going strong.

    Battery Dead Again!!

    Posted by jski on March 11, 2015

    I´ve owned the P330 for 14 months and not used too often. So far I have two dead batteries!! They´re junk. Should´ve bought a different camera.

    Didn´t last long...

    Posted by MMan on September 4, 2014

    Have this battery in a P7700. I charged it maybe 10 times and all of a sudden, I went to turn on the camera and...nothing. So after reading some of the other reviews and the overall rating, and seeing that the battery is on backorder (probably because so many people need a replacement), I can only assume there´s a problem with some of these batteries. I´ll order another but this shouldn´t happen, the batteries on all my other Nikon cameras have never failed and some of them are years old.

    DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT !!!!! Coolpix 6100

    Posted by ArmyVet on April 28, 2014

    I really wish that I would have read all of these reviews before I purchased this camera. I bought it for my wife for Christmas 2012. Used it a few times in 2013, June for my daughters graduation was the last time. Now its April 2013 and I leave for vacation to Mexico the day after tomorrow. I plug in the camera to get it ready, and nothing. No power, light won´t come on, nothing happens. I have taken maybe 20 pics with this camera, now I have to pay $37.95 for a new battery. NIKON should refund peoples money or send a new battery! This is outrageous!!

    Nothing but good things from this camera and battery

    Posted by Coolpix from our CoolPix AW100 on November 22, 2012

    Having taken our Coolpiix AW100 through many countries, in and out of the water, covered in sand etc. we have nothing but good reviews. The EN-EL 12 battery has been of no concern for us, holding a charge well. Many high quality video´s taken throughout the same day with no concerns. The only downfall we had was taking the camera in and out of the water in a warm climate, we found that condensation would get into the lense and caused some blurry pictures. Seal may be broken from us carrying it around and using it to it´s full potential.

    En-EL-12 Battery Cool Pix S8000

    Posted by intud on November 18, 2012

    I don´t know if its the camera or the battery, but one doen´t work without the other. I have taken 192 pictures, and the battery won´t take a charge through the USB power cord. I think $40.00 to replace the battery after so few pictures is ridiculous. I tried the update, but since I can´t get power to the camera, I can´t update the firmware either. Very dissatisfied! The worst part is I am visiting Hungary where I can´t even find a battery, and would really like to take pictures.

    Bad Batteries

    Posted by ellen on October 2, 2012

    I have gone through two of these batteries in less than a year. They are not too cheap either. So i recommend a different camera that uses a different battery.

    Great Camera horrible battery

    Posted by steveb3300 on May 15, 2012

    I just bought a 6200 coolpix and with a new and fully charged EN-EL12 battery and took it to my nieces graduation from college after 34 shots it was dead and I missed out on half a days shooting,shots I can never get again.I can´t believe Nikon can expect customers to be satisfied with that kind of performance.
    I should have stayed with my old Minolta instead of ´´upgrading´´for this event.
