Yes, I charge the $10 SLA battery with the supplied Metz charger, with the lug set to "Dry-Fit." As stated, the $10 battery has the same chemical (SLA), voltage (6V), and capacity (4.5 Ah). The only difference is the dimension.

I bought the Li-Ion battery from here. If you're interested, you may want to drop them a message asking about shipping to where you are.
The Li-Ion is 1 lb lighter than its SLA counterpart, has more capacity. For what I can measure, recycle time is shorter (about 4.5 sec vs. 6.5 sec). I just have it for a few months so I can't tell about its longevity.
