Seems like all EN-EL15 batteries have vanished from the market.

I understand that a couple of batches were recalled, but why have all batches disappeared? Some scalpers have the nerve to ask $150 for each! Good thing I bought 6 of them at a discounted price a month ago.

Any word from Nikon?

how many buyers picking up six at a time does it take to deplete the supply?

it may not be irrational to buy so many, but having done so, one might get a clue as to where they all went...

I had an inkling the EN-EL15 would be in short supply, since 3 popular Nikon cameras share the same battery. I was able to pick up 5 batteries from Amazon in February for $45 a piece.
