    Is it possible to recharge N.American AA rechargeable batteries using a
    European recharger. I have both NiCD, and NiHM batteries, and planning a
    trip to Europe. A friend over there has a recharger, and suggests I use his
    while in Europe. Thanks !
     
  2. What kind of charger? NiCd and NiMH batteries need to be charged
    differently -- although there may be chargers that handle both kinds.

    I don't know what kind of charger......the voltage in Europe (220) is of
    course much higher than in Canada (120) where I live..... Could this voltage
    difference be cause for problems ?

    I did not know that batteries in Europe were different


    The input voltage is irrelevant. The output voltage and amps is what you
    match up. dahh.
    What are the specs on your friends charger? Do they match the needs of your
    batteries?
