For what its worth I would go look on nikon site and find the car charger for that battery, if the voltage and/or polarity is wrong it will short the battery out and become un-usable.

I see that it is available in the Nikon store, but why isn't it available at the dealers like Adorama and B&H where I usually shop for photo gear?

Are they Nikon batteries or off brand? Many off brand/3rd party batt. will not work with Nikon cameras. If it is Nikon brand, it should be OK. If it is 3rd party and it fits and charges up and is recognized by the camera, then it should be OK as long as voltage rating is same. mAh ratings may vary. Many non OEM batteris carry rather optimistic mAh ratings than EOM batteries. Different manufacturers often use same shaped batteries with same voltage ratings; they just name them differently. Some Kodak P&S batteries will fit on certain Fuji cameras for example.

Question

My Nikon battery no longer recharges, Can you help me?

My Nikon EN-EL12 appears to be dead. I have tried for days to recharge it, and the charger shows a green light, indicating it is charged. But my camera will not turn on, I am using a LENMAR SOLOXP-A16 recharger, and my camera is a Nikon Coolpix S630. The recharger has worked for the battery and camera in the past.

Question

Is it OK to recharge a partially discharged battery, or is it better to wait until it is fully discharged?

Battery used with Nikon AW100. I've had some older model batteries with other cameras that had to be charged only when fully spent.
