One reviewer stated that this charger does not trickle charge to keep batteries that are in the charger topped off. Is this true?

I use Powerex batteries and I've never noticed this not to be the case. I've also switched over to the Imedion powerex batteries and I don't have to worry about leaving them in the charger. These keep their charge much longer without being on a trickle charge..

With LSD cells on the market, trickle charging isn't really necessary. But there's still non LSD cells on the market, so far using my older Duracell charger and the La Crosse BC1000 those are enough at this point.

I have never had a problem like that. This is a very impressive charger, definitely not like those ones we had back in the sixties and seventies.

I contacted Maha, and this is the response I received: "Thank you for contacting Maha. All of our chargers including the MH-C808M and our 9V chargers are capable of trickle charging. Therefore it is perfectly safe to leave the batteries in the charger for indefinitely."

I believe that is correct. If this is a requirement, it's worth asking, why use rechargeable batteries for the application?

Rechargables that are not part of the device are usually used where devices are in heavy use, not for things that are used once in a while. Rechargable flashlights have batteries and chargers installed all the time so they don't qualify. These chargers and batteries are usually used where there are two sets of batteries. One in the device and one in the charger. They are swapped when needed. I will say that we used dozens of batteries with these chargers and I have never seen the meter on the charger read anything but 100% when I have gone to it and pulled out a battery. I have also taken batteries that had been charged and removed from the charger to make room for others and found that the charger comes on for less than a minuet and then declares them 100% all the time so they don't loose much charge. Hope this helps. see less I believe that is correct. If this is a requirement, it's worth asking, why use rechargeable batteries for the application?

Yes that's true.. it doesn't trickle charge batteries that are in them to keep them topped off. Another one of their models does that. Even so this charger has been great. I've been using batteries that are 4 years old and they run like new..
