I would play it safe and use Nikon.

And why is Nikon any safer?

My main (and only) complain with the 3rd party battery I've used in
my D70 is that its charge is definitely less than the OEM
counterpart, although the manufacturer claims it should be more.

Why is Nikon safer? If a non-Nikon battery shorts out your camera, or leaks, or blows up, or whatever, do you think you'll get Nikon to repair it under warranty at their expense? Nope.

In the big scheme of things, is an extra $30 worth the peace of mind? In my book it is.
