charging batteries.

I wondering if the batteries i use,Ni-CD,and ni-mh in my equipment,can be damaged if left in the charger plugged into the AC outlet after they have charged. Seems like forever to charge them.

daswede,

It depends on the type of charger.
If it has an electronic control it will shut off when the charge is complete.
Some like the charger for my camera have a blinking light while charging that shuts off the charger and shows a steady light when the charge is complete.
If your batteries are warm long after being fully charged then you should be removing them after the time recommended by the mfr of the charger.

Thanks for the reply. I charged my batteries in two different chargers that have indicater lights that are on when charging. This morning the lights were off and the batteries were cool ,so i'm assuming i can leave them in the charger plugged into the wall outlet and they will charge themselves as needed.
