Nikon Battery Recall Over Fire Hazard Issues

  • Battery may cause fire hazard
  • Sold this year
  • Call Nikon to arrange replacement

Nikon has announced a recall for a lithium battery that can be used in its Nikon 1 V1, Nikon D800, Nikon D800E & Nikon D7000 cameras.

It is thought that the melting of the protective battery cap and overheating of the battery may lead to a fire hazard. This melting is caused by the battery overheating and therefore deforms the camera body.

The company says the batteries have the following batch numbers:

  • 201XXXXXEXXXXX
  • 201XXXXXFXXXXX

The battery was on sale between  1st March and 15th April this year, and was sold nationally with the aforementioned cameras.

People who bought the camera can call Nikon to arrange the return of the affected battery and for a replacement battery to be issued. Call the company 1800 810 259 or by email at recall@nikon.com.au between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday.
