Thread: OEM or 3rd Party

    Default OEM or 3rd Party


    I recently bought one EN-L15 Battery from Ebay for USD 20.50.
    I was pretty amazed by the packaging. It was exactly the same as in original; comes with nikon box, manual and even the battery have serial.
    I wonder does those battery considered OEM? or it is still a 3rd party battery (non nikon battery) ? I've bad experience with 3rd party battery previously.

    It means it's either original or counterfeit. Definitely not OEM.

    you have to weigh between how much you can really save against the risk of damaging your camera? Is it worth the saving?
    Nikon D4 | AF-S 50mm 1.4G | AF-S 24-70mm f/2.8G ED (2.9x) | AF-S VR 70-200mm f/2.8G IF-ED | SB900

    It is like playing Russian roulette. They either have shorter life or worse it may even leak.

    I had to buy a non OEM replacement for my IXUS V a few years back because the original battery was no more available from Canon anymore. The non OEM battery leaked and damaged my IXUS V

    Just buy the OEM battery, although they cost more but they are worth it.

    Original can't be selling at 20 bucks unless it's used.
