Battery PerformanceOur general method for battery testing is to reset the camera to its default settings and change the recording mode to the highest quality option. Then, we take 5 pictures without the flash and 2 pictures with the flash until the battery is dead. For more information on our battery test, please refer to our Testing Procedures page. The EN-EL5 battery was fully drained before charging for the test.

At almost 1,000 pictures, the Coolpix 5200 performed very well in our battery test. We would expect this battery to endure a very heavy day of shooting. As for weekend shooting trips, it may be worth the $25 to buy and charge a spare EN-EL5 as a backup.
