If your charger is making noise, then you need a new charger (-:

hey i dont think u understand me my ac outlet have very bad wiring and i live in very old house so i was wondering what safe way to charge batteries i need step down voltage to 240-120V so i was thinking on step down isolation transformer model 289MG1000 https://www.hammfg.com/electronics/transformers/line/178-240-89-98mg.pdf is it enough?
So exactly what batteries are you charging, and what is your home VAC?
Also, what are you charging?? Batteries in a charger or some other device?
But generally, if you have a noisy wall wart type of adapter putting them on a separate circuit than your audio system is a good idea, or using a power conditioner with great noise suppression.
Use a unit like that one to plug in all your noise sources and keep them isolated from your main conditioner.
Hammond Manufacturing Medical Grade (MG) Plug-In Line Isolation Transformers provide complete line isolation, noise filtering, and utilization of a Faraday shield to reduce leakage currents below UL60601-1 requirements. Reduced noise coupling is due to the floating AC output. Four electrical configurations are available with three VA capacities of 500VA, 1000VA, or 1800VA. The MG transformers are intended for non-patient-connected indoor applications protecting sensitive electronic equipment and are not intended to be used to supply power to life-support appliances.
From their site. There is a data sheet also..

Better, but the rubbish still all ends up on the same active neutral and ground back at the fuse box. So it still gets into the the household wiring.
Best is big Isolation transformer, followed by a medical grade Siemens brick size noise filter. But not for the power amp, that has to go straight into the wall for best results from it.
Look at my thread here about it
For starters , get a dedicated 20 amp circuit,
then a 4 wire dual ground ,1 a common ground,
the other a dedicated ,isolated ground . This is what my Audiophile
friend,Electrician did for my room ,a major difference in lower noise
floor ,this past summer I took it two steps further
He special ordered 30 amp silver plated copper breakers
and Awg 10 Copper Wiring this way No problems with oxidation at the breaker , even less resistance vs awg 12.
extreme maybe but very effective.
