Default Nikon D70 and D90 Battery

Does anyone know if the battery from the D70 will be ok to use in the D90?

A quick google search found this:

EN EL3e battery for use with D80/ D90/ D700/ D300/ D200/ D100/ D70/ D70s/ D50

So you should be fine.

Thanks, I thought I should be ok should I go with the D90. That would give me 4 batteries total!

The battery will work, but I think the D70s (EN-EL3a, 1400mAh)battery has a lower capacity(the EN-EL3e has 1500 mAh). I think you may not be able to track battery life as accurately with the EL3a, as it is missing the required chip. Also, since it is probably over 4 years old, capacity will likely be diminished further. I probably wouldn't use it as a primary battery, but should work well as a backup. With 4 batteries, you'll likely be able to shoot forever.
