it works – NIKON EL9 Compatible Battery (7.4V Li-Ion) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
It is about half the price of a Nikon-brand battery.
Seems to hold the same amount of charge as the Nikon-branded version.
Cons:
The first time I charged it the charger would not recognize when the battery was "full". So I just let it charge for a few hours and put it in the camera. I was not sure if the battery meter in the D40 was reading the battery right, but it showed a full charge. I took about 300 pictures over a week using the initial charge of the battery before the camera showed less than full charge. On the second attempt at charging the battery the charger then was able to recognize the level of charge and showed when it was "full" so now the battery is perfect.
Other:
Bottomline:
Since it is so cheap and works, it makes for a great back-up battery. I would buy it again.
