Well Yes I usually also buy a spare(kick, kick, kick)But I decided to wait a bit! because my D3 batteries were so outstanding I figured I would let the plastic recover from meltdown. So I did order an extra from B&H this morning second day air. If I was sure it would not be covered by Nikon warranty I would have ordered two new ones.
When removing the battery from the charger and putting it in the camera it shows 100% charge.
It just irked me when Nikon (online F&Q) said no warranty on batteries. Will that make me consider leaving Nikon for something else? No! So far no reply from my customer inquire. I am hoping it is just the battery and not the body. I hate the thoughts of sending in the body and the wait. I do not have the ? NPS ? service.
