Idoubt it - those Rayovac 15 minute batteries are different from regular rechargeables, and are intended for the Rayovac 15 minute charger exclusively, I believe.

The Energizer 15 minute charger works with regular Energizer rechargeable batteries, which are among the best batteries available.

I think all 15 min chargeable cells are specially designed to work with their chargers. Energizer 15 min charger can charge common NiMH cells much slower. Chances are that the Rayovac cells will not be recognized by the Energizer charger as 15 min chargeable and thus will be charged slower. In any case I wouldn't risk swapping cells and in general would avoid these super fast chargers. There are plenty of 1 hour chargers that work with normal (cheaper and higher capacity) NiMH cells.

I'mquite sure that the Energizer 15 minute charger uses the regular Energizer rechargeables, and not any type of specially designed battery.

I've got the Energizer 30 minute charger, which also uses the regular Energizer rechargeables (and pretty much any regular rechargeable). When I was looking at chargers, I read about the new Energizer 15 minute charger, and I'm almost positive that it uses regular rechargeables.
