No you will not be able to. If you have an auto charger with a 12v and 2amp selection you can charge it with that.

Yes it will. I charge mine with my ice all the time. Set it up for NIMH, 10 cells, .5 amps. You can try up to 1 amp but I found it false peaks for some reason and shuts it down early.
