Sadly the Nikon EN-EL15 battery in my Nikon 1 V1 has reached the end of its working life. It happened without there being any sign whatsoever that it would die. I took some photos one day, depleting the battery in the process, and recharged it afterwards. The next day I was greeted with the following message on the camera display.
What I find curious is how can the battery be dead, if the camera can power on, briefly showing the menu and all the setting I have set? Not factory settings, but my preferred settings (ISO and so on) instead?
I’m now contemplating what 3rd party battery to buy. An original battery costs 60 Euros, which is about half as much used V1s go for on ebay. Right now I’m leaning towards the Bundlestar battery by Patona.
