Is EN-EL15C compatible with D750.

Is the EN-El15C battery compatible with a D750? I am interested in the 20% higher capacity. Compatible as in can I use the camera without an error popping up?

ANSWER:
Nikon D750

While the answer should be right, the link you pasted is wrong as the OP was asking about the D750 NOT the D780.

Here's the correct link - https://www.nikonusa.com/en/Nikon-Products/Photography-Accessories/DSLR-Camera-Accessories.page?#!/tag:7WA:Power%20Accessories/product:1543:D750

NOTE> In this set of filtered results, Nikon does not state that the EN-EL15c works with the D750. I believe this is an oversight on the part of Nikon

Yeah, that's why I need real world clarification on this matter. Depending on the source you ask, they will say that the battery is compatible or not compatible. I really need someone with a D750 and the battery to test. I don't want to spend $73 on a battery only for the camera to spit out Err when I insert it.

Can't you just bring the D750 into a store and ask to try the battery out?

Likewise haven't found anything on Nikon sites.

But, this from Adorama:

https://www.adorama.com/inkenel15c.html

lists the D750 as being compatible, under the specs tab.  Likewise, Carmarthen Cameras in the UK lists the same compatibility.

If you bought from a suitable store that listed that compatibility, then you'd have no problems with returns if it didn't work.

Doesn't seem to be compatible per everything I've read...only way to test is to purchase see if it err out and then return if it does.

I put an EN-EL15c in a D750. Took lots of pictures. Works great.

Re: Is EN-EL15C compatible with D750.

On a side note, I recently got a D780 with an EN-EL15b battery made in 2020 according to the serial number.  On the battery, it clearly states 1,900 mAH just like my other 5 EN-EL15 batteries (some back from 2010 and my D7000).

Some background...

This year, I purchased a 3rd party charger from ALIEXPRESS that measures the mAh charged into the battery during charging.  So, like many of us wondering how much capacity I still have in my batteries, I discharged the 5 older batteries that I have by running them dead via the cameras and proceeded to charge them back up to see how much they will take.  Each battery was taken down to the level where the camera would still show something on the LCD display but not enough power to actually power on and display more on the screen.  All of the batteries did fairly well and charged into 1,700 mAh range except for one battery which is rated 3 on the age scale which charged into the 1,600 mAh (all of the others rated 0 on the age scale).  To me, these numbers are reasonable as Lithium batteries shouldn't be discharged down to zero as that will damage the cells and the fact that the batteries still provided some power to the camera to display the exposure count but nothing else shows that there is still some power left in the battery.

So, with the new EN-EL15b battery, I pop'd it into my D780 thinking that there should be some power in the battery which is typical of most new in-the-box batteries but nothing was on the camera's display so no power was being provided by the battery.  I pop'd that battery into the 3rd party charger and nothing happened. Think that the battery is either DOA, just not enough power to even register with the 3rd party charger, or Nikon is forcing the owner's to charge the battery by disengaging the cells unless there's a charge applied to the battery first, I plugged it into the Nikon charger and charged it for 5 seconds - enough so that there's a bit of power in the cells.  Sure enough, when I plugged the EN-EL15b back into the 3rd party charger, the charger started to do its thing.  After a few hours, the battery was fully charged and the charger stated that it charged 2,189 mAH into the battery that is rated for 1,900 mAH while I was expecting a number closer to 1,900 mAH.

Long story short, the latest batch of EN-EL15b batteries might have cells that the same level of capacity as the newer EN-EL15c batteries.

No idea whether this is low, high or none of the above, but

EN-EL15   1900mAh   14WH  just arrived with D750 (refurb).  The same battery that I used on D610.
