"Is it a bad idea to use a generic brand replacement battery?"
I am looking to buy a new Nikon battery for my D700. I just read somewhere that a replacement generic brand battery can damage the camera. Is that true? I have used original batteries in my camera til now. But I am looking to buy a new one. Even some buyers on amazon have complained that the batteries sold by amazon are Fake. How am I supposed to know and how much should a brand new ENEL3e battery cost? I am confused by the many prices and brands. Energizer does one that is pretty expensive as well. Would that damage my camera?
