Battery charger question

I have a Q and MX-1 and although the batteries are different, they both will fit in a Wasabi Q battery charger (not the OEM chargers). Can I charge the MX-1 battery in the Wasabi?


MX-1 - 3.6 V - 1250 mAh - 4.5Wh
Q - 3.6V - 1000mAh - 3.4Wh

By 'fit' have you verified that contacts are in the same relative position and the same polarity? The battery case size is only part of 'fitting'. If the electric contacts are in the correct position then the worst that can happen is the MX-1 battery might not be fully charged.
