    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.

    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.
