Re: "Subpar" Nikon EN-EL15b Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Batteries


I have been thru this many times on the supplier end. What happens is some folks swap out OEM batteries for fake in a warehouse somewhere. One time it was in a semi trailer along the way. Anyway, the fakes wind up in OEM boxes and sent to retail as OEM product.

The fakes cost a quarter of the originals, so plenty of money to be made selling the originals thru various online methods.

The OEM is on the legal hook to make things right once it comes to their attention.

I mentioned all this in one of the other threads. Also, they won't be giving any details on the issue beyond this.

It may be it only involved B+H. It may be we here of other outlets swapping. It is too early to tell.
