Battery Question ~ Using a different brand
Feb 13, 2007

I was able to modify a Nikon battery grip to fit my FZ30 and I was able to make use 6 NiMH batteries. My question is can I use a Nikon battery intended for that grip as well? It's an EN-EL3. Voltage is 7.4, 1500mAh. The battery grip can hold 6 NiMH batteries or two EN-EL3 batteries. I've read past threads and I learned FZ cameras can handle as much as 9V but 7 would be ideal so I'm assuming 7.4V will be ok. I just want to make sure. This battery is quite cheap and I don't want to have to modify the FZ30's battery the way I did the grip (translation: major hack!).

TIA!
