some staff leave these batteries charging over the weekend etc....so I was hoping for a charger that would switch off...
Trickle charge current is small enough that it can't really do damage to cells... It's that heat associated with bigger current overcharging which is most dangerous.

Just a thought.┬*Maybe you┬*could use a timer switch unit. Plug that in to the wall socket and plug the charger into the timer.
That's exactly method what dumb timer chargers use, they don't know if cells are half full when inserted which can lead to overcharging... and in case of big capacity cells timercharging set for smaller capacity cells lefts cell partially charged.
