EN-EL15, EN-EL15a and EN-EL15b Rechargeable Li-ion Battery compatibility

The EN-EL15, EN-EL15a and EN-EL15b Rechargeable Li-ion batteries are cross-compatible however electrical performance is improved with successive versions so using an earlier battery in a camera designed for use with a later battery will result in lower than expected performance (fewer pictures can be taken with a single charge). To guarantee your camera performs as specified in the product user manual, please use the battery specified in the manual.

To identify your battery, check the name-plate on the back of the battery and also insert it into the camera and check the: Setup menu > Battery Info.
