I have a battery that is 5600mh will it be ok to charge it or will I need a new charger?
No, you don't need a new charger.
Chargers are rated at the max charge rate in Amps or mA they can charge at. Think of it like filling a bucket. The bigger hose you use, the faster it will fill. If you wanted to charge a 100,000mAh battery with it you could, it just takes more time.
Remember to always check the battery specification to see what the maximum recommended charge rate is. if you have a low capacity battery, it is possible to do damage to the battery by charging at too high of a charge rate. Kind of like filling a spoon with a fire hose.
