Using Croc clips to charge batteries is a good way to start a fire!

If the battery hasn't puffed up/set alight/exploded (depending what type it is, you didn't specify) then it's probably OK. Your charger on the other hand may not be so happy.

Please get some proper charging connectors before something more serious happens!
