Subject: Re: Charging Limit ov JBR V2?
From: Manuel Dejonghe (
Date: 2004-09-02

you ought to have a look at the Battery-FAQ:
specially Q2 seems to be exactly what you want to know:

"Trickle charge is needed to keep the batteries full. That's necessary
because the device will stay powered on and continue to consume some
power from the batteries (the hardware does not allow running from the
charger without charging batteries, or powering off with the charger
connected). The trickle charge time is 12 hours. It should be enough
for you to disconnect your AJB in this time and turn it off / use it.
However, after 12 hours of trickle charge, it will turn it off, the
batteries are discharged and another charge cycle is started."
