nimh- loose about 15-20% of their charge in the first 24 hrs. after that its incremental. keeping them on charge with an intelligent charger will have no ill affect for periods of several months into a year.
power densities high

nicad- generally loose about 10-15% in about 30 days. after that its incremental. issues with charging can cause memory buildup and overcharging can destroy the cell. medium to low power density

lion- holds a charge for a long time. measured in months. power density medium.

power densities will vary with each chemistry used.
