Re. the second recall - I was surprised to find my battery purchased at the end of November was included - so this is obviously an on-going problem.

my D50 battery has also been included in the list. I bought the camera in the month of OCT. Has any nikonian experienced this problem ?

It looks to me like they are going to end up replacing all EN-EL3 batteries.
I'm happy I got an e as a replacement so with the extra 100mA my D50 probably won't ever need to be recharged.

Just got an official Safety Recall Notice in the US mail today. It has the first set of numbers only. I guess they'll have to do it again for the second set.

I had two batteries, only one of which was on the recall list. The other one is a "43" lot which, presumably, was made before any of those on the recall list.

I got one in mail also with first batch of numbers. It looks like battery made in China are defective ( at least that's what I had). The replacement are made in Japan. -B

My "43" lot battery, which is not on the recall list, was made in China.

This is my first post on Nikonians.. so please be gentle with pretty much a beginner.
I picked up my D50 kit today but not allowed it by SWMBO until Christmas Day. But checked on the battery being shipped (thanks to all I have read on Nikonians I knew to ask the question) and found that it was supplied with an EN-EL3a.
This was from Jessops in the UK. So good news.. no messing about with exchanges.

I'm surprise that my battery is also included since I bought mine just 1st week of November.

Problem is that I don't know how I'm ever going to have them replaced. The dealer here in Dubai doesn't seem to know this recall and they don't seem to care.

I hope that there is somebody here from Nikon who would care to one lonely newbie that is isolated from most of Nikonians.

Any help would be much appreciated.



Jerome

Jerome,

Did you try sending email to Nikon about your problem? They may send you voucher or something to get another battery- Good Luck

Thanks for the reply bhola. I have tried searching for the e-mail add of their support... But it keeps on showing me country links from where I bought the camera (probably) so I am more confuse than ever.

It seems like Im the only member here from this part of the world.

Where did you register your camera? The battery recall in Europe requires you to update your register of products with the battery batch number; they then email you confirming an envelope is on it's way to your registered address.
