  • The device does not trickle charge when the main charge is complete. That is a major error in Sparkfun’s description. Li-poly batteries should NEVER be trickle charged. They will be overcharged then and die. If you wish to maintain a full charge it’s best to wait for the battery voltage to drop a reasonable amount and recharge. This may be a while as lithium batteries are better than other types in holding a charge with no load attached.
    This charger also does not seem to do a saturation stage when the full voltage is reached. This means this charger will only charge batteries to about 85% of their capacity.

No public wish lists :(
