Can I use ni-mh batteries in my garden solar lights?

The solar light batteries in my garden are dead. Upon replacing them, I realized they were the old Ni-Cd rechargeable batteries.

I have heard that these batteries are not so good for the environment because they contain toxic chemicals (see Wikipedia). I would like to use Ni-MH batteries instead.

Would this be recommended or will slowly charging these batteries using solar panels shorten its life span?

Thank you for answering my questions about solar lights.
You can see more information about the solar light in the website,then you can make a decide by yourself.
