I did some research into rechargers and rechargeable AA batteries a couple of years ago. Todd is right, chargers that are not “smart” ones that are programmed to switch over to a tickle charge will continue to operate on full charging mode and will overhead your batteries, shortening the battery life.

I don’t know if I would necessarily assume the “smart” chargers to be any safer or will reliably cut back to a tickle charge. I am usually around while my batteries are in the charger and will take them off the charger as soon as the fully charged light comes on.

The idea of using a timer is a good idea and a nice back up. I can be distracted and get into a task and forget little things like these.
