Nikon Recalls Some D7000/D800 Batteries Due to Overheating Issue

If you’re a Nikon D7000, D800, D800E, or V1 owner listen up, because Nikon has issued a voluntary recall on the rechargeable Li-ion EN-EL15 battery that’s used to power those cameras. Nikon discovered an overheating issue that can deform the outside casing of the cameras (at this point there have been only 7 confirmed cases worldwide) and is offering anybody with a battery whose 9th serial number digit is either “E” or “F” a free replacement. More details on both the problem and how to get your replacement can be found inĀ Nikon’s service advisory.
