Questions & Answers for Nikon Inc. EP-5B Power Supply Connector

Question

Can I attach the EP-5B to a DC power source (battery)? What connector do I need?

I can't fit a handgrip battery in my rig. I'd like to power the camera off an external battery.

I have an EH-5b ac adapter sitting right in front of me, it's the part that actually supplies power to the EP-5B. According the pinout information on the ac adapter, two of the pins aren't connected and the other two pins supply nine volts at up to 4500 mA.

Based on that, it looks to me like you could hook any 9 V power supply, whether a battery or whatever to the EP-5B. It'd probably take a little bit of soldering to do it nicely, but I don't see any huge issues.

I understand your question. Nikon doesn't make what you want. A suggestion is to take the EP-5B adapter and the EH-5 to an electronics repair shop. He can use the male connector on the a/ c adapter to make a plug for the battery you want to use. His is assuming he battery you want to use. (you didn't mention that) is the correct voltage. If not I don't know if there is such a thing as a dc to dc voltage converter. I think the right technician can help you.

EP-5B replaces the EN-EL15 battery in the camera, the EH-5a a/c adapter is attached to it to run on a/c power. If your camera does not use a EN-EL15 battery you cannot use this.

According to Nikon's website the EP-5B is compatible with AC adapter EH-5. Here is a direct quote: "The EP-5B is required when using the AC adapter EH-5/EH-5a to power the camera."

The D800 requires both the EH-5b AC Adapter and the EP-5B Power Supply Connector. They are each sold separately.

Question

EP-5b compatible with EH-6 AC Adapter... Correct ?

According to the Nikon web site info that I have read ... the Nikon EH-6 AC Adapter (now archived) can be used in combination with the EP-5b Power Supply Connector for the D800.... Correct ?

I also noted that the newer Nikon EH-6b AC Adapter is not listed as compatible with EP-5b....

Question

Traveling to Ireland - Help with adapter question

Taking a D3100 to Ireland & Nikon recommends both EH-5A AC Adapter and EP-5a Power Connector. Suppliers claim the EH-5A is discontinued. Would like to verify that EH-5B AC Adapter and EP-5B Power Connector are compatible with my camera. Also do I have to use these Nikon products? Why can't I plug my battery charger into a normal adapter?

You don't need them unless you want to run on ac power. Just purchase the correct power cord for the MH-24 charger. The power cords are generic and can be purchased at any electronic retailer in Ireland. The charger itself is rated from 110-240 volts self switching.
