K3ii grip

I just opened the box for my new camera. I notice the batteries are different from my K20. Will my external battery attachment work on the K3II?

If you're talking about the grip for your K20D no. Your new camera takes a BG5 while your K20D takes a BG2.

Yup, you'd need the dedicated K-3 / K-3 II grip, which is the D-BG5.
