Default Newbie question about my Airtronics M11 radio

I just purchased an M11 and I was wondering if I put Nimh AAs in the radio can I charge those batts directly from the radio if I make a converter (alligator to barrel) that will allow my Integy charger to plug into the charging jack on the back grip? Or do I always have to pull my AAs out just to charge em?

Thanks in advance!

Evolsport,
The Short answer is yes. Beware of the reduction in voltages from alkaline to Nicad (1.5 to 1.2 respectively). I've been racing since the late 80's and have found that staying with the AA alkalines is the way to go. One less thing to keep up with prior to race day.
