Can you leave STIHL batteries on the charger?

It is a common misconception that you should always unplug your STIHL battery charger as soon as the battery is fully charged. In fact, leaving the battery on the charger can actually help keep it in good condition.

When you leave a battery on the charger, it continues to charge in small amounts. This helps to prevent sulfation, which is a build-up of lead sulfate crystals on the battery’s plates that can reduce its performance over time. By keeping your batteries connected to the chargers even when they are not being used, you can help extend their life and maintain their peak performance.
