Youre advised to stop using affected EN-EL3 batteries in the affected batches immediately.

Quite different explanation than in Nikon Finland site,
here they told that some batteries may overheat during charge
and because of that all the possibly defected batteries are changed for free.

I never noticed that battery overheated or even heated when charging
but my battery batch is in the list so maybe i should return it.

I wonder if the low capacity issues some have complained are due to defect batteries...
