old Canon batteries on C100?

Hello everyone,
Would you know if I can use my old XHA1 batteries on the Canon C100? According to BH site, they seem to use the same ones, however, I'd like to clarify before I attempt to do so.
Thank you.

Yes. I have one and it works fine as my backup. I find the LED battery indicator lights quite helpful to spot-check the newer batteries for charge.

Works great even after laying in the cupboard for 3 years like mine did.

C100 - Canon - BP-970G Battery Pack - 7.2v, 7200mAh
XHA1 - Pearstone - BP-970 Lithium-Ion Battery Pack (7.2V, 7200mAh)

XHA1 -Canon - BP-955 Lithium-Ion Battery Pack (5200mAh)
C100 - Canon - BP-955 Lithium-Ion Battery Pack (5200mAh)

C100 - Canon - BP-975 Intelligent Lithium-Ion Battery Pack (7350 mAh)

Yupyup, my old XHA1 batteries are great in the C100.

Side question: Anyone foresee any issues charging the new crop of intelligent batteries on the older XHA1 chargers? Would be nice to always have one in the kit and one in the studio...
