On a trickle charge your charger will probably show more mAh going in than really has That's because, as the first cells reach full charge and the other ones are still catching up, some of the mAh will be converted into heat (only small amounts, not enough to overheat the battery) instead of into potential energy. So, the more accurate measure will be how many mAh you can then take out.
