    Just got my new MB-D100 and was disappointed to find out that my D100
    will not function with freshly recharged AA batteries. It will
    function with alkalines.

    Anyone have success with rechargeable AA batteries with this battery

  2. You need "proper" rechargeables - NiMH - not toy batteries.

    I'll hazard a guess this is similar to the problem some have
    experienced with the MB-E5700 for the CP-5700/8700. High capacity NiMH
    batteries do not necessarily conform to the standard AA dimensions. As
    such they may not make contact at the positive terminal. I eventually
    got Nikon to replace it under warranty. If you care for the long
    version of the story, see:
