Nikon is recalling some of its EN-EL3 batteries for safety reasons. Apparently, some of them present a short circuit fire hazard. It applies to owners of the D100, D70, and D50.

At first I gasped when I didn't see a lot number (means it isn't a genuine Nikon product), but you have to shine the light on it at a certain angle to see the number. Mine is okay.

You might want to check out the lot numbers to see if you have one of the defective batteries.
