Not necessarily. It depends on how long your adapter was inserted.
Rockbox won't trickle charge for longer than 12 hours after the charging
is finished. So if you keep it attached for a very long time, the
batteries might not be full after all, even if Trickle is enabled.
This is done to protect the batteries from wearing out if the charger is
attached for several days. On second thought, we might want to remove
that safety feature...
