battery pack for extra k-3

I was wondering if the battery pack that came on my K-3 silver would be usable on another k-3 that was black? Or would I have to buy another battery pack? Thank you

Why would the inner workings be different? As far as I know, the difference between regular black and silver editions is purely cosmetic, no performance related differences. Or do you mean the battery grip D-BG5? I believe, it will connect and work with black also, just may look out of place because of some silver details.

They're the same exact battery, so yes.

And for that matter, the battery for the K-3 is the same as for the K-5 and K-5 II.

Thank you so much. I began to wonder if after having to send my K-3 in for repair, and it taking so long if having a backup would be useful. Hoping to merge Birthday and Christmas gift, if DH will approve.
Thanks again,
maria

Don't forget the K-7 and 645D.

And here's an excellent deal on Amazon on two generic (Wasabi) batteries and a charger for $26.99 to go with all those Pentax bodies.
