    I was wondering how long it was taking for other people to get their
    replacement battery. I sent my back mid-November and still haven't
    received anything.

    Thanks.

    10 days passed between the time I sent my EL3 and received a new EL3e.

    Sent mine 14th Dec (SW Spain to Ireland) - not yet returned - but
    seasonal post problems can be expected.

    There are reports of the EN-EL3e (required for the D200) fetching very
    high prices on Ebay - coincidence?

    Given the high price the EL3e are fetching on Ebay ($80+) from new D200
    owners, some returned batteries may be vulnerable to "lost parcel"
    syndrome.

    It took me something like a month and a half, and three phone calls to
    the UPS Logistics group handling the recall. I got back a 1500mAh EN-
    EL3a.

    I guess based on these replies that I'll be calling Nikon tomorrow.
    It's been almost six weeks for me. Thanks.

  9. I purchased new D50 outfit about a month ago, and it came with an EN-EL3a
    battery. I purchased a second battery for backup from 17th Street Photo, and
    it too was an EN-EL3a. Yesterday I logged on to the Nikon website and looked
    up its article about the EN-EL3 recall. It specifically stated that if one's
    battery is either an EN-EL3a or an EN-EL3e, it is okay and NOT included in
    the recall. So I breathed a sigh of relief.

    I opted to "pay" for the replacement, Nikon wont charge
    if you sent the original back within 30 days. Got the
    new battery in about 5 days, and no charges on my CC,
    after about a month...
