Anybody heard any good rumors about when this battery (for the D4s) will begin shipping? I know I can use my EN-EL18's (of which I have three), but I'd like to get the higher current capacity of the 18A's (2500 v 2000 mAh, in spec at least).
Or am I going to have to buy a second D4s just to get another battery? (That's a joke, folks...)
Just got a ship notice from Amazon. They claim the batteries might be to me as early as Thursday...or as late as next Monday.
When they get here, I'll have three EN-EL18 batteries and three EN-EL18A's. Which should keep me going all day.
Now I'm going to have to work out a color code so I'll preferentially route the 18a's to the D4s and the the 18's to the D4. (Yes, I do have way too much time on my hands...but at a quick look the batteries look the same.) I'm thinking maybe an underlay of red vinyl tape for the 18A's and green vinyl tap for the 18's. P-touch of my name and cell phone number on top. (I've never actually lost anything...or had somebody return it. But I still put my name and phone number on everything. Hearking back to my kid military days, where we marked everything with out initials and surname.)
In fact, the batteries arrived this afternoon! In the middle of a downpour; good thing I have a covered poch. Very nicely packed.
Color coded and labeled them (and the other four of my EN-EL18(A) batteries). Then into the charger they went (50% LED flashing) on the first...then on he second. The first battery charged up in about two hours. I left the other battery in the charger, and drove to work (in the same downpour).
