    Hi to all.
    The camera that I just baught comes with NiMh batteries and a
    charger.Can I charge Nicad's in this charger. A quick glance on the
    internet shows that these type of batteries are almost identical. I am
    pretty sure there should be no problem using Nicads in the charger ,
    but as I'm in no hurry I thought I'd check.
    cheers
    Rob

    many NiMh chragers are suited to charging NiCd cells, but if yours doesn't
    say so it might be bad for them.

    I believe that nicads can always be charged with nimh chargers, but not
    the other way around. nimh cells are a bit more difficult to detect
    end-of-charge on. So, I'd say go for it. If you are really worried, don't
    ask here, send email to the manufacturer and ask them.
