Re: K-5, possible to use a Nikon battery in it?

Looked up the Nikon battery and it says 7.4v. The Pentax is 7.2v, so I don't think it would be worth trying because they are not exactly the same voltage. Is it worth risking a $1000 camera on it?

My suggestion would be to buy a battery grip. It comes with a tray for 6 AA batteries. AA are the easiest to find batteries out there...

The third connection must be used for charging in some way. The standard chargers have the three metal contacts.
