Trickle charging

Trickle charging means charging a fully charged battery under no load at a rate equal to its self-discharge rate, thus enabling the battery to remain at its fully charged level. A battery under continuous float voltage is said to be under float charging. The slowest type of setting is best reserved for long overnight charges at home and is either provided safely by de-rated dedicated charge points or through a standard 3-pin plug, which lacks certain safety features.
