Safely charging NiMH batteries

Rechargeable batteries: Any difference between NiMH batteries purchased in Europe vs. US? I have several AA batteries I bought in Eur for my camera, but I don't have my charger with me in the US. 1. If I buy a charger in the US, can I charge the batteries I bought in Europe? 2. When I go back to Europe, is it OK to use the US charger on the European current with just an adaptor for the plug? I just want to make sure I don't (a) start any fires! or (b) damage the batteries. The batteries I have are all either 2000 or 2650. thanks for your help!
