I think batteries these days are pretty high-tech and it doesn't really matter. But it might help I'm not sure, I tend to keep mine always plugged in when I'm home.

Jaymz, here's something to think about...a fella just told me not to do that because, "[b]Leaving it in the charger all of the time generates heat which will reduce the charging capacity over time.[/b]".

hope this helps someone else out Exclamation Smile

take care --- Derek.

Jaymz, now someone metioned this, "[b]The charger should have a circuit breaker within that stops charging the battery once it is full.[/b]"

so who knows i guess lol.

thanx --- Derek.
