Increase Nikon Z 7 and Nikon Z 6 full-frame mirrorless camera battery endurance by approximately 1.8x
TOKYO - Nikon Corporation (Nikon) is pleased to announce the release of the MB-N10 Battery Pack for the Nikon Z 7 and Nikon Z 6 full-frame (Nikon FX-format) mirrorless cameras. Development of the MB-N10 was announced on August 23, 2018.
The MB-N10 can hold two EN-EL15b rechargeable Li-ion batteries, allowing users to record approximately 1.8x more stills and movie footage with the Z 7 and Z 6. In addition, the MB-N10 is a "hot swap" battery pack that continues to supply power even when one of the two batteries is removed, as long as the other is not exhausted. This supports shooting and recording for longer periods of time by allowing users to replace an exhausted battery with a fresh one without interruption.
