Nikon are the hallmark of engineering prowess. In terms of IQ they have been beating the competition for the last half decade, or so. There are 9 Nikon cameras in the DXO top-20 and Nikkor lenses typically get raging reviews. So why the company has been scrambling around new product strategies, recently, and why have the shares dropped off so dramatically? The answer is as simple as complicated.
I am not going to nag about how my search traffic has dropped off to virtually nothing. I'm sure I deserve it. One can hardly pretend to know better than a couple of hundreds of Google engineers, right?
Nikon is recalling certain serial number batches of the EN-EL3 battery, due to a over heating problem that may occur during recharging.
It's been almost a year since I wrote the original article on the notorious EN-EL3e False Low Battery Warning (FLBW), and I am still not aware of any official responses from Nikon on this issue. After an extensive review of suggested solutions by users here and on other forums, here are some ideas that might work for you.

I’m seeing a lot of people on the net complaining about a false low-battery problem with the D300 and the EN-EL3e, the standard battery for the D200, D300 and D700.
