You can overcharge the battery, but its not that dangerous... You can prevent that if you build or buy a smart charger, the one that when charges the batteries, reach a certain point, for example if you have a 1,5 volt battery when the battery is full, for example 1,6 volts, the charger cuts the power to the battery and stops charging it... I think what is sad is true...look up google for more information! :D
