Z9 Batteries

The Nikon Z9 can use any EN-EL18 battery (Nikon has made five variations, the original EN-EL18, plus EN-EL18A, EN-EL18B, EN-EL18C, and now EN-EL18D versions. Only the EN-EL18B, EN-EL18C, and EN-EL18D batteries can be charged by the MH-33 charger that comes with the Z9 camera. Older battery versions will need to use Nikon's original MH-26 battery charger, or one of the many third party EN-EL18 chargers that have appeared.

Third party batteries and battery chargers exist for the EN-EL18 line and can be found on Amazon. Be careful about these. So far, I've found that a few batteries seem to work in the camera, but don't necessarily work on the charger. Likewise, the third-party chargers may or may not fully charge the EN-EL18D battery supplied with the camera. The Kastar EN-EL18 (3200mAh) battery does not work on the MH-33 charger, nor does it work in the camera.

As I learn more, I'll update this page.
