My 530 charges aftermarket NiCds just fine from the DC power input jack.
You know that it won't charge 12v batteries that way, right? But has
always worked perfectly on the 7.2 volt batteries that I use (never
tried a 9.6). (Remember not to overcharge, though. There's no automatic
shut off.  Set your display to read the battery voltage and keep your
eye on it.)

73 and GL,
