I have often wondered but never asked about the charging characteristics of this onboard battery charger for my SR3 Advanced. It seems as though, regardless of the battery's charge, the red LED's stay on for a while.
Here's what I'm wondering:
1) Does it have any "smart charging" ability? Does it know anything about the charge of the battery at any given time? What determines its charge time? Can it trickle charge?
2) What then is the best strategy for "topping off" a battery that has not been used for a few weeks the night before a shoot?
3) Given this type of charger, what is the best way to maintain the life of my newly-recelled onboards between shoots?
