    Where do you think Nikon or other battery companies get theirs from ?

    If you want a battery with a warranty, get the Nikon, or try a 3rd party brand with a reputation for backing their products like Energizer, Polaroid or Efilm/Delkin.

    I have two extra EN-L3's from Efilm and they cost about $18 each .

    I've read those " generic " batteries are just as good as the name brand ones .. you pay more for the name brand ones for just that .. the NAME.

    For $20, I think it's worth it to give them a try ... you'll probably be surprised and end up getting 3 batteries that are just as good as the one that ships with your D70.

    How is the camera btw?

    I actually sold mine Canon one for 50 bucks, and then bought 4 third party ones for 24.. :hsugh:
