LP-E6n with LP-E6

I understand that the LP-E6n is compatible with the 5D3 and 5D2, but can anyone tell me if the newer battery can be used together with the older LP-E6 in a BG-E11 grip.

 

Thanks

Thanks.

 

Also, just received the following from Canon -

 

'With reference to according product specification to the EOS 5D Mk II and the EOS 5D Mk III, we can inform that indeed both cameras are compatible with the rechargeable Li-ion Battery LP-E6 and LP-E6N.
 
Both battery types can be inserted side-by-side in the battery grip BG-E11, however we do advise on getting hold on the improved LP-E6N to prevent any issues related to the batteries.'

The battery is forward and backward compatible with the "N" version.  Except having an additional 65 mAh of storage capacity (1865 mAh vs. 1800 mAh).  It may make your battery level look off, though.

EOS 1DX and 1D Mk IV and less lenses then before!

Thanks.
