NikonNikon EN-EL3 battery recall : Through strict quality control procedures Nikon has detected that on rare occasions some rechargeable Li-ion batteries of the type EN-EL3 for Nikon Digital SLR cameras may become defective, resulting in an overheating during recharging. Investigations have clarified that the cause of the defect is not a design fault, but has resulted from a temporary problem in a manufacturing process that occurred during the production of this battery type between May and September 2004. In the interests of its customers and as a reflection of Nikon’s commitment to safety and product quality, the company has initiated a voluntary recall and replacement program of all EN-EL3 batteries manufactured during this period.

It is also sold as a separate accessory for these camera models, and can be used in the Nikon D70s. To date, Nikon has received notification of five occurrences of defective batteries worldwide of which two have been in Europe.
