Just got my FZ20, the manual says around 2hrs for charging, but does the charger automatically switch-off after charging? For example could I stick it on charge over night knowing that the charger would 'knock-off' when done?

cheers

Hey ras...there is no problem with leaving it plugged in the charger for a few extra hours. Just don't make a habit of it, overnight is ok...i wouldn't try to test the limits by leaving it in there for days on end...lol.

Yes, I agree with Seth. I have observed that the battery power stays a little longer if you leave it overnight, well after the green light is gone. However, I wouldn't risk putting it there for days.

Ok thanks a lot guys! Have no intention of leaving it on for days, just wanted to know if it stops charging automatically so as not to damage the battery! That's cool - ta

Much appreciated peeps
