MH-18 and MH-18a chargers interchangable?

Evan Fusco , Jan 09, 2006; 03:39 p.m.

I have the MH-18 charger that came with the D70 and EN-EL3 battery and I now, also, have an MH-18a charger that came with the D200 and EN-EL3e battery.

The EN-EL3e (for D200) fits on both chargers while the EN-EL3 only fits on the MH-18 (non-a) charger.

Will the MH-18 (non-a) charger safely and adequately charge the EN-EL3e battery?

Are they any other changes/improvements to the MH-18a that would make it any more desireable as a charger than the MH-18a?

I think the MH-18a charges the EN-EL3 a little faster than the EN-EL3e about 15 min...the MH-18a is slightly smaller, actually the "a" charger was included with the D70s...either one can be used to charge either battery
