Friend gave me a Charger but.....


I am wondering if I can charge my batteries with it. It is a 120V single lead charger.

It is a 9.6V charger, it has Deans connectors on it. It only thing it really says on it is"Charger for 9.6V batteries (NICD, AA)" it also mentions the input output...
Input 120VAC, 60Hz only, 0.10A--
Out 11.5VDC, 1.05VA
The battery he had been charging with it was a 8cell 9.6V 700mAh NICD AA battery, and one that he said was a 9.6V 1050mAh....bad thing was it took like 4-5hrs to do the higher mAh and about 2-3hrs to do the 700mAh....it was a charger he got with the purchase of an RC car...he put the Deans connectors on so he could charge plane batteries.
I think I can use it but since it does mention NICD, AA on the charger I just wanted to double check.
I would be charging a 8cell 9.6V 730mAh (AAA) battery with it...What do ya'll think??

Well guy at LHS says it shouldnt be a problem just I have to watch the time of charging since it isnt a peak charger......I did some math with what I told him and he said it should be fully charged in about 3 1/2hrs since he feels that the charger is designed to charge AA packs at a time length of 4hours (8Cell 700mAh), and I will be charging a 8cell 730mAh AAA pack.

You need to keep an eye on the battery temperature too. The batteries will warm up when they are done charging. Just don't let them get too warm.
