Looks like the fun isn’t over just yet for you Nikon digital camera owners — that Nikon battery recall from last month? Nope, not over. Expanded. Turns out their listed recall lots weren’t distributed in the US for hte most part (woops — thanks for letting us know a month late, Nikon), so if you’ve got a D100, D70 and D50, best check again to see whether you have an EN-EL3 battery that starts with lot numbers 51A 53A or 54A (in addition to the other lots already recalled, just in case).

Looks like you hit the nail on the head...indeed I have a Nikon, but there are other cameras I am using also, like Leica, Yashica and Pentax...I am not all that bad! LOL!!

Indeed it is a shame that a simple thing like a battery is still unreliable and can cause damage to our cameras which we work hard for and maybe save money for a long time to be able to buy one.
Good thing I am not using the Nikon battery but a cheap one for 5 $ :)

btw. I am waiting for a Canon recall :p
