would oscillation harm NiMH when charging?

Do you have a technical question that doesn't really fit a specific console? Want some general info on electronics, hacking, making cookies, etc? Here's the place to ask! Go nuts.

would oscillation harm NiMH when charging?

So far I've been using a big, bulky, not very portable DC power supply to charge my N64p because it charges at about 800ma and that's the only 12v PSU I have that can supply enough power (if it gets too little ma, it doesn't fully charge). But I just found a smaller wall wort that's 12v 830ma but it's AC. I could easily change it to DC with a bridge rectifier but wouldn't that make it oscillate a bit without any extra filtering stuff? Would that be bad for charging NiMH or would it work?

Just put some juicy filtering caps on the output of the bridge rectifier. Just make sure to test the output before wiring it to your battery pack.
