Hello,
I'm not sure if this is the proper forum; I apologize if it is not. I have a few EN-EL3E batterires; some that came with my cameras and a couple I purchased extra. Is there a way to tell by serial number or other means, which batteries are the oldest or newest? I know that in some cameras you can check the battery life or charge. I just want to know the manufacturing date.

Thanks,
Brent

I have the same question, Brent, but doesn't look like you got any replies to your inquiry. Anyone able to help?

Thanks!

Hi Barbara,

While I am sure that Nikon has the information somewhere in their data base, I have never seen it published anywhere, including on the Nikon web site.

Best Regards,
