A great place to get a Maha charger and batteries is http://www.thomasdistributing.com/ . 1600mA seems to be the sweet spot for capacity/price. The AA's work perfectly in the Cordless Rumblepad.

And what makes them even better is a good charger; for example, the Maha series seems to be pretty good (http://www.mahaenergy.com/), and they're specialized in recharchable technology.
A good charger makes a big difference in how long your batteries will last, and during their useful life, how fully charged they are; a good charger is well worth the extra few bucks at the beginning!

i got my first taste of Ni-MH when i bought an Olympus digital camera becasue they came in a package deal. I used NiCds in a tv long time ago and if i know they would only last 1/6 the time of regular batteries never would have bought them. Now that Ni-MH last longer and don't have the memory troubles of NICDs it's time to switch back to rechargabe batteries for all my AA devices.

That should work just fine. It certainly won't damage the controller (unless the batteries leak, which I can't see happening).
Going rechargable makes a lot of sense... thanks for contributing your bit to lowering the pile of battery trash!
