Battery drains quicklyBattery drains in under 100 snaps without a flash in fair weather. In cold weather stops working within minutes of being outside. Nikon needs to fix this problem.

Works well in Df.It does work well in the Df, which I speculate was the reason for a version of this battery with just a bit more "juice". I can't say I am thrilled about the charger, which only works in a wall receptacle (no cord option like my other Nikon chargers) but I do not fault the battery design for that. It is an efficient battery, not a lot larger than that in my Fuji x20 P&S but yet powers a much more complicated camera for quite a long time.
My only complaint, if this can really be counted as such, is that it does not last long in cold weather. I only got an hour of use out of one battery during night exposures in 10-20 degree (F) weather. I was scared to death that it was going to die during the noise reduction routine on the last image.
