Help, I need a battery!

Post by snapabraham » Tue Jan 15, 2013 9:40 pm

Hi folks! I just picked up a beautiful Nikon E3s on Ebay last week. It was only $70!! However, there was no battery with it. It is very clean and has minimal wear. If anyone has a battery for sale of knows where I can get a replacement, PLEASE PM me! I've been looking online, but so far have found no leads. Thanks in advance.

Hi,
I can't help you with a battery, but I have a Nikon ES-1 netadapter for the Nikon E2/E3-series for sale. Let me know what you want to spent on it and where it should go.
regards,
Nico

Hi,

Unfortunately, those batteries don't exist in the replacement battery world. There were never enough of these cameras made to interest the makers. So, you need to find an old (long dead) battery and have the cells replaced at someplace like Batteries Plus.

Later!

As nobody replied I've sold the netadapter to someone else!

Hi,

My Wetware is getting a little rusty... It has been quite a while since I had E series stuff...

But IIRC the D1 charger will also work on E3 batteries....

The E2 used a coaxial connection, 2 wires, as they were NiCd. The E3 used NiMH and had the same connection as the D1 batteries. IIRC, of course.....

The D1 charger handles on battery at a time. The E3 charger handles two....

Be careful!

The D1 charger (aka Nikon MH-16) has an output of 8.7V. The E3 charger (aka Nikon EH-3) too. The MH-16 has no socket to plug in the ES-1, the EH-3 charger has one socket for the ES-1 plug with an output of 8V (1.6A). So, the MH-16 is useless. It is better to find a cell-phone charger with an output of 8V and build a socket to make use of the ES-1 plug.
Have a look here http://www.nicovandijk.net/chargers.htm/.
