Think of voltage as water pressure. If you try to push 10 pound water pressure into a 40 pound pressurized pipe. It will come out not in. You need more voltage than the battery has to push a charge into it.

Voltage is what decides which way current is going to flow.

So in you situation the battery will be pushing current in to the charger !

The reverse current will probably over heat a part of that charger as a minimum or explode a semiconductor and start a fire as a bad case..

No, it won't work.

Imagine you have two buckets of water, connected by a pipe. You put one bucket on the top of a ladder. Which way will the water want to flow ? UP to the top of the ladder, or DOWN to the one at the bottom.
