The reason could be that the En-El 15 on the V1 was put into the whole body and transversally, and I'd say that in the V2 the battery will go only into the shape of the grip and longitudinally (as in a classic dSLR). This could mean less space for it, so En-EL 21 of J1/2 was used.

As a J1 user (I refused to buy V1 as I was sure more enthusiast friendly model had to come), I would have been delighted if EN-EL 20 was used (I have 4). It would have made sense if you are aiming to get J1 users to upgrade, but using a completely new battery is a terrible idea. It does not attract any of present nikon users!

Maybe this will be the battery on the upcoming DSLRs like D5200, D7100, etc? (Most likely they don't care)

ps. I truly believe photography as a hobby is defined by the pleasure you get from the activity. It does not matter what equipment or results. I am a hobbyist and a very awful photographer (snapshooter is a better name) but a very happy one.
