how old is your batteries?
if it is old, as it more than a year or two, just downgrade to use it for other purpose, buy a new set of batteries, cos aged batteries don't hold charge as good as new batteries.

Agreed, I don't think it's recommended to mix batteries with different ages, as capacity changes with age too.

General Guidelines:
- Do not attempt to charge primary (non-rechargeable) batteries (i.e. alkaline, carbon zinc or lithium)
- Do not mix battery chemistries
- Do not attempt to recharge alkaline rechargeable batteries using an Energizer® charger
- Do not mix fully charged and discharged batteries
- Do not mix batteries of different capacities or age

CAN I MIX OLD AND NEW BATTERIES?
Do not mix old and new batteries.
Doing so will reduce overall performance and may cause battery leakage or rupture.
