Yes, it does.

So far as I know, all "intelligent" chargers these days stop the charge when the battery is full. As you're probably aware, it's especially important with LiPos; though Nixx cells can also be destroyed if they're significantly overcharged.

If you are charging at low currents, the cut off may not be very reliable as the voltage step becomes very small and sometimes is not detected. If you are charging at .2C or higher, it is usually reliable. To be safe, always charge where, if the cuttoff doesn't work, the resulting battery failure will not burn anything up.

When charging Lipo batteries I have 2 backup stop conditions set; time and total capacity.

When charging Nixx batteries I have 3 backup stop conditions set; time, total capacity, and temperature.

Never had a battery overcharged yet.
