    Hi

    Can anybody recommend the best place to buy batteries for the Nikon D3200 - its ithe EN-EL14 (and what is the difference between this and the EN-EL14a?)
    Also would you suggest the originals or are there are good cheaper brands? I am assuming it would be wise to take a spare battery on holiday although I will
    be taking my charger?

    Thanks

    - its ithe EN-EL14 (and what is the difference between this and the EN-EL14a?

    The difference is that the original EN-EL14 is 1030 mAh battery and the EN-EL14A is a 1230 mAh battery (an extra 200 mAh capacity)
    The 14A was brought out by Nikon for the new Nikon Df camera but will work equallly well with your D3200.

    I buy my Nikon camera batteries from a Nikon dealer, and do not use 3rd party makes.

    Thank you , how much would you expect to pay for a EN-EL14a? and is it best to have a spare?

    As far as I know, Nikon doesn't manufacture batteries but will more likely buy them from a reputable specialist. Sensible companies have at least 2 suppliers for something as vital as a camera battery.

    Provided your batteries come from a similarly reputable company, they should work as well as the originals. Names like Delkin and Duracell come to mind and dealers like 7 day shop would only buy in good quality products.

    ...and yes, it is best to have a spare.

    But only of it is charged Wink

    And yes, I have been caught out with not realising that the spare loses charge over time Sad
