    Ricoh DB-60 battery same as DB-70?

    I saw one page where the size and ratings were identical -- are these batteries interchangeable?

    It would appear they are NOT the same.

    DB-70 - Rechargeable battery for the CX1, R10, R8 and Caplio R7/R6. A special battery charger is needed to charge this battery. (ETA: I believe it requires the Ricoh BJ-7 charger.)

    DB-60 - Rechargeable battery for GR Digital II, GR Digital, Caplio R5/R4/R3/R30/GX100 and G600. Battery charger BJ-6 is needed to charge this battery.

    Recently sold my GRD with case & spare battery. Perhaps I should've kept the battery but who knew? I replaced with a GX100 VF1 kit. Nice camera me like but can't touch the GRD for B&W... anyway back to the battery story...

    I needed a spare DB-60. Local Best Buy - about $70., local camera shop about $40. local Radio Shack, about $30. If I were as rich as I used to be, I wouldn't care but, that's another story. Found the compatibles (above)...

    Delivered by asian seller to NY via ebay... $5.00 (cost + shipping) !!! and it works great! So if you need a DB-60, hope the list above helps.
