Re: Thank you. Imortant but:

Realistically I believe that the only difference, apart from thickness, is in the mAh capacity of the two batteries.  As long as the external contacts are in the same locations for +/-, etc., then there should be no issue charging them on the same charger.  LiIon chemistry is the same regardless and the only difference might be that the larger capacity battery will charge slightly slower on a LI50B charger.  But that assumes that the current provided by the chargers varies which I doubt it would.  Think of these as comparable to a regular and extended battery for your cell phone, different mAh capacities, but same phone and same charger.
