Default Lipo Charger

Hi everybody I just had a question about my parkzone corsair battery and charger. Both are the items included in the RTF package, and I just wanted to know that when the battery is done charging, is it possible to overcharge? Or does it cut off power after it's done? I check on my battery every 5 minutes or so because I charge it out of my car. Sometimes I unhook it after it's been done for a couple minutes or so. Is this harmful? Or is it okay for the battery because it stops power flow? Thanks in advance.

I've heard that it can loose charge if plugged in to long, and some chargers auto cut-off when reaches full charge. I would be VERYcareful sense its a lipo. The quick field charger I use goes into trickle charge so it puts almost no charge in but still on, so it doesnt hurt anything, I hope.

The PZ provided chargers will stop charging once the battery has reached capacity. No worries there.

If you're looking for something more efficient, you might want to look into one of these two:

http://hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store...idProduct=7373

These will grow with you and can charge much more quickly than the PZ charger. Good luck.
