Nope.  Check what type of battery you have, NiCd or NIMH and replace with the same type.  That's what your charger expects.

Great thanks

I found an external case to use AA batteries in it.

Could I use Li ion batteries in that case since it will be charged with a different charger?

If you put LiOn batteries in the case calculate what is your total voltage and amperage of the case?

The voltage should total 7.2 volts (slightly higher is usually OK) and the amperage should be 1400 mAh or better.  You can usually exceed the amperage by a wide margin.

If the case with LiOn meets that range then as long as the charger is designed for LiOn batteries you should be OK.

Note the following articles on the differences in chargers.

This should show you why you need to match the batteries and chargers.
