    what or where to get a d80 battery. Are there any third party batteries that work well with the d80? i used a third party batt with my d50 and didnt have any problems. but ive been seeing mixed comments with the d80 and third party battery. im also looking to get a mb-d80 so it would have to work with it..

    I would stay away from third parties. You can order the el3e (i think thats it) from BH

    Sterlingteks are amazing, better than OEM but I'm not totally sure what one to get for the D90 which I think is the same as the D80. I have 2 Sterlingteks for the D50 and they were great.

    I've always used the EN-EL3e batteries that came w/ all 3 of my cameras and never had issues. :duno:

    another vote for sterlingtek. Great batteries and you can usually get 2 for the price of 1 Nikon battery. Ive used sterlingtek for awhile in both my dslr and old sony cam

    I ordered two EN-EL3e's, and I've always used OEM Nikon. Never a problem, batteries in my D100 still hold a full charge after seven years :bowdown:

    anyone use sterlingtek batteries on a mb-d80 grip or just with a d80. the cam bodies mentioned are older bodies i dont know if they have the same "3" terminal as the d80 batt does

    I bought two third party batteries off eBay. One is in the camera, one is in the bag and one is at home. I rotate all three and I haven't noticed that the OEM is better than the other two.

    ive used sterlingteks in my 300d and 30d, friends xt and xti and dad's fuji P&S. i cant imagine some flaw existing only in the nikon batteries.

    but, do what you wish.

    ok im going to try some sterlingteks. but i noticed that it says it has a higher mAH comapred to genuine nikons. is it ok to use these two in camera grip? or is it better to have matching batteries in a grip
