Maybe I'm being ignorant of some feature (and if I am, ignore this), but
I dont think that this is the best solution. If the batteries become
'overcharged' the electrolyte inside them will evaporate overtime. Over
weeks/months, if the batteries are fully charged when this process
starts, wont this shorten the battery lifespan? Or am I being too cautious?
