Left On The Charger
Yes, I'm sure there are threads about this. First off let me say I know not to leave the cells on the charger once they've fully recharged. However, there have been times when I'm sorry to say I forgot about them and left them on after charging for a couple hours before the D'Oh! moment kicked in and I ran down and got them off.

So the question actually is, how long can a cell be left on the charger after charging before any damage is done? I use the Intellicharger i4 if that makes any difference.

RE: Left On The Charger
Depends on whether it trickle charges or not. I've fallen asleep after the light went green before now.

In general it Is A Bad Thing to do this. But everyone's done it one time or another.

If it's a good charger it ought to be possible to leave it on charge perpetually. Just don't  - sooner or later it will burn your home down.

Mostly it is later...

I'm personally not a fan of NiteCore chargers but they will stop.

If the charger has "Fire" in its name it is a good idea to be more careful. The charger I've forgotten more than any other was an UltraFire.

And no fires yet. BTW that charger never gets used now.

RE: Left On The Charger
That's good to know, thanks. I'm not against getting a new charger but this'n has served me well, so I'll stick to the status quo for now. I do unplug the charger when not in use.

One of these available around your kneck of the woods? Might not be exact green light timing but you'll not leave batteries on over night for example

RE: Left On The Charger
I thought most of the decent chargers including the nitecore i4 shuts the charge off once they are fully charged ? that was my 1st charger lol but i still wouldn't trust any to be left on

RE: Left On The Charger
i set my batteries up to charge via usb port on my PS3 and have it set to shut down after 3 hrs idle . the cell isn't always fully charged , but it dose give a good measure of protection agenst over charging.

RE: Left On The Charger
That brings me to the idea, how about combining the charger with a timer?
