The Nikon Coolpix MH-70 battery charger charges the AA batteries used in my camera, and I was wondering if I could use it to charge AAA batteries? All I need is a small lump of conductor to bridge the small gap due to the smaller height of the AAA, but will it work OK or blow something ? Does AAA require different currents / volts to charge? Thanks.

The AAA batteries are lower capacity and will require a lower charging current.

Use a charger designed for the purpose. The batteries can go off with quite a bang when overcharged.
