Can you leave charged batteries in the dual charger?

[ New ]

Hi,

 

I bought a new gopro and tons of accessories. I was planning to leave the charged batteries in the dual charger because it seems like it would be protective. But I thought maybe it's not designed for that. Can someone from gopro please let me know if this is ok?

 

Thanks,

 

Agata

Hello @agataw326. The contact between the battery and the charger could cause discharge in the long run. You can keep the batteries in a bag that does not conduct and get wet for better protection. Thanks!

Hi @agataw326

 

When charging is complete, it's suggested to remove the battery from the dock.

 

 

Thanks!

Thanks. Does this mean even if the charger is unplugged? What is a good way to store batteries so they don't get banged around?

You are right. I tested it by leaving the batteries overnight in the unplugged charger and one was dead in the morning.

 

Thanks for your advice!
