The higher AH rating will just give you power for a longer duration.  Changing the voltage is what may or may not cause a problem with your gear.  You're fine.

I think you need a 1000mA charger... most "normal" chargers are 600mA I believe.

I could be way off on the numbers though- the point is you need more charging current.
