Default E Flight Blade MCX/Battery Question

My first chopper! I just bought an E Flight Blade MCX and having a blast with it but I have a question about batteries. A 3.7V 120mAh battery came in the manufacturers box. A spare was offered as a freebie. it's also a 3.7V however it's a 150mAh which makes it about 1/4-inch longer.

The 120mAh seats nicely in the chopper and the tail end of the battery clears the motors/gears however, the 150mAh if I seated it all the way would interfear with gears.

The question(s):

Can I use this larger capacity battery? I have not charged it for the first time yet so I could probably return it for a swap.

If I do use it, since this is a micro helicopter, wil the added weight be an issue?

With the longer battery, is it just a matter of not seating it all the way so the tail end of the battery has ample clearance to the gears/motors?

Can I charge the 150 in the same charger that is for the 120 and came with the Heli?<br type="_moz" />
