D850 battery life - my experience so far
4

I obtained my D850 from Bass & Bligh in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, UK in mid-December. It became immediately apparent that the camera was consuming battery power at an alarming rate. Far from the Nikon advertised 1,840 shots, I would not have achieved 184 shots. The fault was not with the battery because a fresh, genuine Nikon battery was exhausted in similar fashion.

Bass & Bligh agreed to exchange the camera (without any quibble I might add) and they lent me their demo model because they didn't have another D850 in stock but they expected (rightly) that Nikon would provide a replacement for me quickly even though D850s were in short supply at that time. The replacement was in my hands four days later.

The replacement has performed way beyond my expectations. Here is a phone shot of the Battery info menu item... 1,840 passed and 30% charge remaining!
