Why won’t my third-party bat­tery work on my Nikon D5300?

Matt says… Some­where in your cam­era’s in­struc­tions, Robert, there will be a pas­sage ad­vis­ing against us­ing third-party bat­ter­ies, as Nikon will not have tested them and there­fore can­not ap­prove the bat­tery for use with the cam­era. The in­com­pat­i­bil­ity can oc­ca­sion­ally be reme­died with a firmware up­date, but of­ten the power source is un­us­able. It may be harsh on those of us look­ing for a cheaper op­tion, but as there’s po­ten­tial for dam­age to the cam­era and your­self if the bat­tery is faulty, the pol­icy is some­what un­der­stand­able.

A third-party bat­tery won’t al­ways func­tion with your Nikon D-SLR, and your man­ual will ad­vise against us­ing them
