Will the 8700 used the same standard battery?

From what I can see from some of the pictures, the 8700 battery looks more like the battery for the 7100. Can anyone confirm?

Thanks. Upgrading to 8700 and passing my 7290 on to one of my employees. Just figuring out which accessories I can keep.

The 8700 requires the next generation "secure" battery and the 7290 does not. If you put the standard 7290 battery into the 8700, it will not fit or work. If you put the standard 7100 series battery, it will not work, but it will fit. You require the secure battery for this device.
