Hi,
Does anyone have any ideas as to the life span of the above battery on average use? I need to know. Thanks.

12 months, but as with most rechargeable batteries- fully discharging regularly can signifcantly increase the battery life span-atleast 50%.

Got a Coolpix 880. Still using the same Nikon EN-EL1 battery after 2yrs. It now needs a recharge after using one 64Mb card, but I use the LCD and often do movies with it. If I don't it lasts for several cards still

Assuming it's being used on a laptop ?

Just wondering as I have just bought a Creative Jukebox Zen for my son and the battery is not replaceable. Given that the warranty is just one year on this product it seems that it will last as long as the battery. On the new NX model the battery can be replaced when it finally dies. My fault really, should have done a bit more research. Considering that the thing costs over £200, it becomes a very expensive item. SO BEWARE.

Lithium-ion battery-info please.

Lithium batteries will progressively degrade over a period of time. Most Laptops have a battery optimiser in the bios.
Please state where you are using the battery.
Camcorder,cameraor laptop?

with proper use -as previously mentioned you should be able to increase the life span.
