I have  just bought a used - excellent condition - D 610 from a reputable camera store. I fully charged the battery with the Newell charger the they sent me with it. When inserted it showed 96% in the battery info menu. Without firing the shutter I sat and literally watched the charge percentage plummet before my eyes down to 46% in about five minutes. The battery info stated that the battery was new so I was amazed. Recharged it to full a couple of more times with the same result. It's a Nikon Li-ion 1.0 EN-EL 15. Just thought I'd seek advice in case I'd missed anything obvious before going back to the store.

 

Many thanks.

I would think either 'duff' battery or excessive current being drawn by the camera.

 

I think a return visit to your supplier is in order.

What part of the UK are you in?

Ah, pity you're not closer - I could have let you try one of my EL15 batteries.

 

I'm sure Park Cameras will want to preserve their reputation by solving your problem quickly.

I would suggest that you do a complete camera reset (if you haven't already done so). It's possible that some setting is out of whack and causing the battery drain. In any case, it can't hurt. I suppose it's also possible that there is some problem between the genuine Nikon battery and the off brand charger. They do exchange more information than just power.

 

And, of course you can always return it to the place of purchase.

 

Good luck!

Contacted Park Cameras and they are having it back to check the fault. Repair, replace or refund. 


Thanks for your time.
