Nikon "chips" their most recent batteries which is read by the camera. A 3rd party generic or counterfeit battery, which is what the battery in the link probably is, will give you an error message and be unusable in your camera. These batteries also will not work in the P7000 Coolpix if it has the latest firmware installed.

Look at where the battery is being sold from and the very low price. Think about it.
