Can a Nikon D70 Li-ion battery work in a nikon D200?
I don't think so, the D200 uses the EN-EL3e, which has 3 metal contact strips. The D70 uses the EN-EL3, which only has 2 contact strips.
thanks, you are correct btw! turns out the d200 battery can work in the D70 but not visa versa!
i would be careful interchanging batteries that are different.
Unless the voltages are the same, the d200's battery could fry your d70
Thank you for the concern, the voltage is the same the only diffence is the amount of connections and the D200 battery holds more power longer
No... I have both of those cameras and the only thing compatible is the charger.
The D70 uses Ni-Metal-Hydride batteries, with the 2 contacts. The D200 uses the Li-Ion batteries with the third contact to tell the charger the charge rate and both the camera and charger the battery condition. Without this third strip, Li-Ion batteries can combust if overcharged or charger too fast.
