AB suggests leaving the batteries on the charger when not in use.

From the Titan T2 manual:

"As with all Anton/Bauer chargers, charging with TITAN T2 is fully automatic. Mount any
Digital Logic Series or Logic Series battery to the TITAN T2 and it will automatically
determine the appropriate charge routine and execute it.

"Anton/Bauer recommends that each battery have a charge position, for
when the battery is not in use. A battery can remain on an Anton/Bauer
charger indefinitely.

"The TITAN T2 incorporates the exclusive InterActive communication between battery
and charger, which allows the charger to identify any Anton/Bauer battery attached and
determine the precise charge routine for that battery under the prevailing conditions.

"Stage Three charging is the Anton/Bauer exclusive Lifesaver maintenance
mode. This patented pulse routine keeps batteries fully charged, free from selfdischarge
- indefinitely - without damaging heat associated with a so-called
“trickle charge”. The Stage Three programming for DIONIC monitors the self
discharge of the battery, providing charge only when the battery self discharges
to about 95% of its capacity."

Okay, this is a little tangential to the original subject but anyone know if those cheapo generic "replacement dionic90 batteries" can be kept on the AB chargers when fully charged? I'm thinking of those as a cheaper alternative. thanks for help guys.

A year and a half later, I started running into issues with my batteries not taking/holding a full charge (2 of my 4 Dionic90's)

Got them back today from having my local pro house throw them on an interactive diagnostic AB charger.

Like new!

gotta love the interactive chargers. I used to sleep with mine ;-)
well not really but I sure did love it. Of course when a chip blew and I had to send it in for repair to AB I had to buy another charger (a Tandem 60 IIRC) and that cost me. But when you need it you need it.
Anyway, even though I don't use ABs anymore I'm a conformed AB guy. Long live Anton Bauer!

What do I know? I'm just a video-O-grafer.

As Amos asked, can the cheaper AB type batteries be charged with an AB charger??
