EN-EL15's are easy to find even in stores that don't have a D800 in stock. The same battery is used in other Nikon cameras, such as the D7000 and V1. The D7000 has been around for awhile, so I expect many stores would have them.
Nikon batteries used to have broader compatibility among models. At one time or another I owned a D50, D70, D80, D90, D200, D300/D300s and D700, and the same EN-EL3e battery worked in all of them.
