Power source
Battery One EN-EL15c Rechargeable Li-ion Battery; EN-EL15b/EN-EL15a/EN-EL15 can also be used, but note that fewer pictures can be taken on a single charge and that the EH-7P charging AC adapter can be used to charge EN-EL15c/EN-EL15b batteries only
Battery pack MB-N11 Power Battery Pack and MB-N10 Battery Pack (available separately); each takes two EN-EL15c batteries; EN-EL15b/EN-EL15a/EN-EL15 batteries can be used in place of the EN-EL15c. The number of pictures that can be taken on a single charge (i.e., battery endurance) will however drop compared to the EN-EL15c
Charging AC adapter EH-7P charging AC adapter (available separately)
AC adapter EH-5d/EH-5c/EH-5b AC adapter (requires EP-5B power connector, which is available separately)
