The resister would be a ballast.

Probably not. Because the adapters are unregulated. This means that the battery will be allowed to draw to much current and may damage itself.

Unfortunately I am afraid that you need to get a new charger.

Check EBAY.

Hope this helps.

You can prevent too much current draw by putting a resister I series with it. The resiter's rating can be calculated by multiplying current in amps not ma times voltage. Yes you could with more info I can help.
