I have about 40 ARLO batteries   It’s easy to swap those fully charged batteries with ones that are low.

i have a habit in keeping the various batteries always charging.

Are the ARLO chargers like trickle chargers only charging when needed (like my golf cart).  Or are the chargers working 100% in charging?

Ive noticed some of the batteries I have waiting do but always show 96% charge ir higher. Does laying batteries inactive cause them to lose some capacity?

Things to remember re Batteries...

1) if charged in the cameras they will NOT get a true 100% charge ( tho they will read that in the battery info ), they will only get an 80% charge to prevent overcharging the pack.

Batteries charged in a charge tube or external charger will get a true 100% and last about 20% longer.

2) All batteries will loose some power sitting unused... so that is normal. Loss of these types of cells in in the 1-3 percent range for about per month....
