CRV3 Batteries in a K100D?

Anyone know if CRV3 batteries will function in a K100D?

I use Rechargeable Lithium Ion Batteries in my *istD

They work great and were not expensive.

edit: Rechargeable CRV3 Li-Ion batteries.

I saw another post here that suggested that CRV3 rechargeables could fry your cameras electronics on a K100D, However I have non-rechargeable CRV3s. Im hoping they will work.

I never used rechargeable CRV3s in my K100D, but I did use non-rechargeables from time to time.

I ever used rechargeable CRV3 on K100D, it worked quite well, so don't worry about its function. And I think it's much durable than AA.

But on my K100D, I got mirror flapping problem when CRV3 ran out, never with AA. So if you find the K100D keeps flapping, don't be scared, just pull out the batteries and recharge them.

I don't see the benefit here. 2 CR-V3s cost double what 4 AA Lithiums cost. And you only get about 60 more shots.

If you want rechargeable invest in some Eneloops.

How many more shots do you get out of CR-V3s vs regular non-lithium AAs?

I did use on my K100D and they worked perfectly. If only I could use them on the K-X as well.

The link above says you get 630 shots with CR-V3, 570 with AA Lithium, 60 with AA alkaline, and 300 with AA NiMH rechargeable.
