I’ve always put them directly on charger from tool…thanks for info on that not being good for them! I’ll have to develop habit of leaving them off for a spell and then putting on charger. Knowing me, I’ll remember a few days later when I need them again :(

Kind of unrelated, but we’ve bought a 40V blower and push mower (yes, mower) from Ryobi and they actually work pretty good. They have a chain saw that runs on 2 40V batteries.

I doubt there s harm in it with lithium
batteries. Modern chargers have circuitry
in them to prevent over-charging.

One of the worst things you can do it
put a hot battery straight from a tool
you ve been using onto the charger.
That really cooks them.
