Questions & Answers for Nikon Inc. EN-EL3a Rechargeable Li-ion Battery

Question

Is the Nikon EN-EL3e battery compatible with the Nikon D70 camera?

I own a D70 and a D300 and need a battery for the D70. On the B&H website, they list the EN-EL3e as a "replacement" for the EN-EL3a. However, they are not alike. The EL3a has 2 contacts and the EL3e has 3. I'm afraid to insert the EL3e into the D70 it might damage the camera.

Are EN-EL3 batteries interchangable with EN-EL3e batteries?

I have a D90 and recently purchased a D70 that came with three batteries. Can I use the en-el3 batteries in my D90?

Yes they are interchangeable but be careful there was a recall on the EN-EL3 batteries:

there's a reason you can't find one: the EN-EL3a has been superseded by the EN-EL3e, which is compatible with the earlier battery, but lasts longer.
