The battery for the D40 does not hold a charge very long. Is it better to buy on Ebay a NOS Nikon battery or a new 3rd party battery? I know I can get a new Nikon at B&H but don't want to spend $45.

I use 3rd party batteries for both my D50 and D300 and never had an issue.

Thanks Herman. I'll just get a cheapie aftermarket battery. I don't use the D40 much and really not too concerned about the battery damaging the camera.

Aftermarket is a good choice but also check out KEH. They usually sell batteries that came in from different deals at reasonable prices.
