Question

Short Battery Age in V1?

Within the first two months of ownership of a V1 and EN-EL15 (both purchased brand new), the Battery Age of the EN-EL15 is already = 2. So far, I've taken no more than 975 pictures and maybe ten various videos, and the battery's been charged approx. five times. Should the EN-EL15 be 'aging' so quickly?

BTW, the ninth character of the battery's lot number = J, so this one's not part of the April recall.

Thanks in advance!

Battery Life (shots per charge) 350 shots. Battery life will vary with condition of the battery, temperature and how is used. Make sure to keep the battery contacts clean since soiled contacts can reduce battery performance. Use the battery immediately after charging sin it will lose their charge if left unused. Also, may vary depending on shooting interval and length of time menus and images displayed.

Question

Why doesn't my EN-EL15 take a charge?

The battery indicates that it is charging (flashing), but it never charges. It has not been dropped or damaged in any way, just quit charging. The Charger works fine on my other (spare) EN-EL15.

I assume you have a D7000, insert battery in camera and in the setup menu go to Battery info, check the battery age as it will tell you if it has reached the end of life cycle. If it doesn't have sufficient charge to do this I would assume the battery needs to be replaced.

Question

Is it possible to overcharge EN-EL15 Battery?

Are there any overcharging issues such as damaging the battery from overcharging if the battery is plugged in and charged overnight? How long can the battery be safely left in the charger (with the charger plugged) after the charge light on the charger becomes solid (indicating that charging is complete)?

Question

will the battery's life be affected if charged when it is not completely drained or slightly used?

when travelling, i usually charge the battery whenever possible. and most of the time, it still has 75% of capacity left. will this shorten the battery life cycle? is it required to only charge the battery when it is completely drained to get a full battery life cycle? thanks.

Question

What is the weight of the battery?

Can you tell me what the nominal weight is of the battery without packaging and without the protective cap? What would be the production margin of variation for weight?
My reason for asking is that counterfeits are so good these days that one of few giveaways is the weight (and yes, I have seen the page on counterfeit batteries, and it does not cover the EN-EL15 or it's weight)

Do not use the battery at ambient temperatures below 0°C/32°F or above 40°C/104°F; failure to observe this precaution could damage the battery or impair its performance. Capacity may be reduced and charging times may increase at battery temperatures from 0°C/32°F to 15°C/59°F and from 45°C/113°F to 60°C/140°F.
