Nikon recalls camera batteries

EN-EL15 battery “overheats and deforms the camera body”

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Nikon has issued a recall for the EN-EL15 Lithium Ion battery, an accessory for its D800, D800E, and D7000 digital-SLR cameras, and the Nikon 1 V1 advanced camera.

In a service advisory statement present on Nikon’s US, European and Australian websites, the company says the battery “may contain a sub-standard component” which “In extremely rare cases … may cause the battery to overheat and the exterior casing to become deformed.”

The problem has not been detected in the wild, but the company has nonetheless decided to recall the batteries.

Effected batteries will have the letter “E” or “F” as the ninth character in their serial number. Nikon has offered the example of a serial number “201XXXXXEXXXXX” or “201XXXXXFXXXXX” to help identify batteries it will replace, for that is the company's intention.

The links above offer information on how to set the replacement process in motion where you live. ®
