    In all fairness, so can OEM batteries. My third-party batteries have been flawless over the years and sell for 1/3 the price.

    The key is "CHEAP" Chinese batteries. I am certain that well made Chinese batteries are good. In fact, I would not be surprised if some of the Nikon brand batteries are now made in China. The problem is determining which are the good and which are the bad batteries. I am sure that cheap, no name brands, sold on Ebay are the issue.

    A couple weeks ago I was fooling around with a small bluetooth receiver that had quit. Decided to crack it open on the workbench and have a look. In the process I damaged the Li-On battery and it started smoking then burst into flames. Mind you this is a little flat battery, the size of a postage stamp and about 1/8 inch thick. Made a hot and stinky mess.

    No more experiments like this for me.

    Yes...and after looking at lots of batteries and reviews, I am going with the Nikon. Almost ALL the reviews of 3rd party batteries say the same thing...they start out great for the first year or so, then stop holding a charge and drain quickly. Thats what this battery is doing. Will drain quickly and will start discharging as soon as its off the charger. Charged it fully. Unplugged the charger. The next day put it in the camera and it said 36% charge. put it back on the charger until full and put it immediately in the camera and got 98%. The third party batteries usually don't show the correct battery info as well on the camera. Just to be clear I have NEVER purchased a replacement Nikon battery. Even my D70 battery will still hold a full charge and still shoot 800 or so shots if needed. That battery is literally 13 years old. My D700 battery again, a 10 year old camera on its original battery would shoot for months on a single charge (100 or so shots a week). There are some batteries I am sure that will be just as good as the Nikon, its just finding them and getting a good one. Lower price batteries are going to have more of a variance in quality...Its not worth it to me. $60 and forget about it.

    Picked up a D750 2 months ago and Iím finding the battery depleting overnight. Iíve got a D7100 and I can leave it on/off/whatever and the battery lasts for weeks on end.
    Iíve placed the D750ís battery into the D7100 and it acts normally. Iíve placed the D7100ís battery into the D750 and itís gone overnight.
    This is a ďno-shootĒ situation. The camera is sitting on the computer desk (and yes, itís on, but so is the D7100) and the battery drains overnight. Itís disconcerting, to say the least, but since I canít find anyone else experiencing this issue, Iím leaning towards boxing it up and shipping it to Nikon.

    Welcome aboard. Enjoy the ride.
    We look forward to seeing more posts and samples of your work.

    You might try a factory reset on the D750. If this does not work, a trip to the camera doctor might be in order. If you have a good local repair shop, you might consider visiting them before sending it off to Nikon. Also a phone cvall to Nikon might be worth while before sending it off.

    I’ve placed the D750’s battery into the D7100 and it acts normally. I’ve placed the D7100’s battery into the D750 and it’s gone overnight.

    Is the Wifi turned on? If so, turn it off and see if that makes a difference.

    The WiFi is on. I’ll turn it off tonight and check again. It’d be annoying if that were the problem (I’m an IT guy), as modern cameras are as much computers as cameras, and it’d mean this was either never tested, or tested and deemed “not to be a problem”.
    Love the camera though!

    Then I'm guessing that is your problem. Others have reported battery drain when leaving their camera Wifi turned on. And many are other Nikon bodies - not just the D750. I hope it will resolve your issue and not be something more complicated!
