Nikon releases the MB-N10 Battery Pack for the Z series

The New MB-N10 Battery Pack for the Z Series

Capture more with the new battery pack that increases the Nikon full-frame mirrorless cameras’ endurance

We are pleased to announce the release of the MB-N10 Battery Pack for the Nikon Z 7 and Z 6 full-frame mirrorless cameras.

Development of the MB-N10 was announced on August 23, 2018.

Primary features

Record approximately 1.8× more stills and movie footage[1]

The MB-N10 can hold up to two of the same EN-EL15b rechargeable Li-ion batteries used to power the Z 7 and Z 6. When the MB-N10 is used, approximately 610 stills [2][3] can be captured with the Z 7, and approximately 570 stills [2][3] can be captured with the Z 6. In addition, the total length of time movies can be recorded increases to approximately 155 minutes [2] [4] with both the Z 7 and Z 6.

“Hot swappable”

The MB-N10 is a “hot swap” battery pack that continues to supply power even when one of the two batteries are removed, as long as the other is not exhausted. This is especially convenient when recording over an extended period of time, such as when an external recorder is used to record movies [5] or with interval timer shooting, because batteries can be replaced as needed without interrupting recording.

Additional features

  • The EH-7P Charging AC Adapter (available separately)[6] can be used to charge two EN-EL15b batteries, one after the other, inserted in the MB-N10 while it is connected to the camera[7],[8].
  • Dust- and drip-resistance equal to that of the Z 7 and Z 6.
  • Good balance that enables a firmer and steadier grip when a telephoto or medium telephoto lens is used.
