No. Every charge cycle is the same and runs till a delta peak is
detected (voltage going down because of batteries heating up). And we do
not shut off only because of a high voltage of some value. This is good
for one complete charge cycle, but not the best possibility for the
trickle charge.

Bye, Uwe.
