Extra battery for Nikon AW110

KenS from Newark, DE on 5/19/2013

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.

Pros: Long lasting

Cons: Recharging time

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Previous battery lasted a year after taking many photos. I expect this battery to last as long.

Pros: It last for about 300 shots and then you recharge.

Cons: None, except battery doesn't last as long in cold weather.

Nikon EN-EL12 - authenic

HenryL from Baton Rouge, LA on 1/23/2013

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).

Pros: Received exact item as expected.

Cons: None

Sorry, no. Your camera takes the EN-EL10 model which has since been discontinued: You may want to contact Nikon directly to see if you can get a replacement: 800-645-6689 I hope that helps. My Bio: [ Ryan  Dec 21, 2016 ]  Staff
