Extra battery for Nikon AW110

Written By KenS, Newark, DE on Sunday, May 19, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Bought as a backup since I was going on a trip and was unsure how long battery would last. With 2 batteries I never ran out of juice all day. It does take a while to charge, about 2 plus hours, so with desktop charger and cable that comes with camera, I was able to charge both overnight, one in the camera and one in the charger.
Long lasting

Nikon EN-EL 12

Written By MariaR, New York, NY on Thursday, February 07, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Previous battery lasted a year after taking many photos. I expect this battery to last as long.
It last for about 300 shots and then you recharge.
None, except battery doesn't last as long in cold weather.

Nikon EN-EL12 - authenic

Written By HenryL, Baton Rouge, LA on Wednesday, January 23, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
The Nikon EN-EL12 battery was the authenic battery from Nikon. It was not a substitute which sometimes is slightly different dimensions and hard to get in and out of the camera. The battery received was the authenic battery and fit perfectly (easy to get in and out of camera).
Received exact item as expected.
