So does the new "c" type battery fit in the older less powerful chargers then? I'm all for a slower charger that does not get the battery so warm. The peak charge voltage should be the same but just take a bit longer.

All 4 of the EN-EL15 version batteries (EN-EL15, a, b and c) are still listed on Nikon's USA website. The MH-25 and MH-25a are also listed. If you look at the description of each battery, the charger that can be used is listed. For the original version, the MH-25 is listed. For all others, only the MH-25a is listed as the proper charger.

Going a step further, I looked at the descriptions of the 2 chargers. The MH-25 only lists the original EN-EL15. The description of the MH-25a is obviously out of date. It only lists the EN-EL15 and EN-EL15a. No mention of the b and c versions. Of course, we know that is the correct charger for those b and c versions.

Now, does that mean you can't use the older charger with the a, b and c versions? I don't know the correct answer to that. It seems unlikely to me that Nikon would not list all combinations that could be used.

Thank you for the info and link.   I have an MH-25a sitting here and it says 8.4V and 1.2A output.  Do you have an MH-25 handy?

The first digital image was made in the late '60's for NASA, as a way to record images of Mars. Each "square" was represented by three numbers, corresponding to the red, green, and blue hue on a scale of 0 to 255. This eliminated the need to ship film back to Earth.
