    Will my light shut off automatically when it is fully charged or do I need to unplug it once the green lights are flashing?

    Once the dashboard lights stop flashing and turn solid green, the light is fully charged and the charger has slowed to a trickle. You'll want to unplug it at that point--leaving it on for a few hours won't do anything harmful, but if you leave it on for more than 24 hours at a time, the battery can be negatively affected.

    Is it better to store the battery on full charge or charge before diving? I dive weekly but i'm wondering if it's better to leave it charged or partially charged?

    I was told by L&M to just charge it the night before.
