Desperate for an EN-EL15--any sightings?
Jun 18, 2012

I'm leaving for Italy in a couple of weeks and am getting anxious about finding a spare EN-EL15 before I go. All I can find are ones on Ebay shipped from Japan or China and I'm afraid it might not arrive in time. Anyone know where they are available now??

I really don't want to travel without at least one spare, no matter how good the battery life is!

I have a backorder in J&R when it was just 59 US$ with free shipping. Looks like a lot of people jumped on the band wagon and I spoke to the sales guy who said. They now have over 100+ people waiting in line.

They only recieved 10 batteries this weekend and it went to the 10 guys on the list based on who ordered first ( he told me that the system does not allow hinm to find out what was my waiting list number).

I wanted to cut and run but I just noticed that the price has spiked to US$ 74.00 , so I am going to keep the order.

I ordered with a local shop that said they just recieved my order by... I am cheap and not in a rush so don't want to pay 74$ so holding out.

Check your local Best Buy stores. Some people have posted that they have found those under batteries for Nikon D7000.

Good luck.

don't think I haven't considered that but I'm a little tapped out at the moment

A V1 would be nice though!

I got myself a spare one in April when I got my D800.

I'm still waiting for it to be replaced as it is one of the batch that can overheat.While charging.if it goes on much longer I may just have to use it but keep an eye on it when it is charging

I found one yesterday at a Fry's store(in California). Just keep looking around you will probably find one. It's just part part of Nikon's great 2012 scaveger hunt. So far I have found a D800 and a EN-EL15. What's next on the list?

Maybe Italy is a better solution

Just ordered two from Pictureline, thank you, you really saved the day! And they aren't even price gouging like some other shops.

That's not a shop on my radar but it will be now!

Thank you Fred!

Janet,

Glad to help. I went to recheck the site & it listed as B/O status so I think you got the last 2. I found a lot of new places to shop when I ordered my D800 so I guess that experience can be viewed as positive. I found a place N of Seattle called Kenmore Camera & I only had to wait 6 days. Love google too.

Enjoy your trip & post some images when you get back.

Fred

You can get them from Cameta Camera, but only through Amazon, at $84.95. The Amazon page said they had 12 in stock, I ordered one a few minutes ago, and now it says 11, so I think it's legitimate.

Oddly, the Cameta website itself says it's backordered, but only charges $69 when it is in stock.

Great service from these folks. Ordered about 3 hours ago, and have already received shipping notice. Should be here day after tomorrow via regular shipping.
