From Nikon:
 
Modifications enabled with this version:

  • When the Charging AC Adapter EH-69P and USB Cable UC-E6 were connected to the camera to charge the Rechargeable Li-ion Battery EN-EL19 with the EN-EL19 at or very near full exhaustion, the battery sometimes could not be charged. This issue has been resolved.
