Need suggestions for Nikon Coolpix 3500 EN-EL2 Replacement Battery

    My Nikon Coolpix 3500 camera chews through its EN-EL2 battery
    remarkably fast, so I have of course bought a second battery off of
    eBay several months back. Unfortunately, the generic Ebay battery has
    not performed nearly as well as the original Nikon battery despite
    being rated with a higher maH capacity.

    Anyway, I would like to purchase another replacement battery, but
    would like to avoid spending $30+ for a genuine Nikon battery. How can
    I find a good quality replacement battery? It seems incredibly hard to
    gauge the quality of the generic eBay batteries.

    Please provide any suggestions... Thanks!

    Hi Dave - your post confirms my thoughts that eBay may be "penetrated" to
    get rid of sub-standard stock. I mean stuff that may not be up to retail
    standard and without all the guarantees that a high-street retailer would
    honor.

    Thanks for the posting - I hink I will revise my purchasing strategies
    accordingly
