Battery Related question(s)?
Hi, I was thinking of buying some EN-EL3e's for my D200 (mine feeds on batteries like there's no tomorrow) and I was wondering
a) where do you pro photographers buy batteries? Is there any place where I can get a legitimate Nikon battery for cheap?
and b) is there a Nikon charger that charges 2 3e batteries at once? If not, can I get an AC adapter for the D200 and will it charge the battery?

"Is there any place where I can get a legitimate Nikon battery for cheap?"
Not as far as I know. When I need Nikon batteries I usually check with B&H, Adorama, KEH, NewEgg, Beach Camera and any other reputable sellers to see if anybody has them on sale. If you are unsure about an online seller, check them out at www.resellerratings.com
Look for a seller with many rating reviews and a score near 10.
"is there a Nikon charger that charges 2 3e batteries at once?"
No. ...but there is at least one third-party manufacturer who makes one.
I have no experience with this charger, so I can't say anything about it one way or the other.
"can I get an AC adapter for the D200 and will it charge the battery?"
Yes and no.
Yes you can get an AC adapter - the EH-6A
...but the AC adapter will not charge the battery. It only powers the camera.
