Apache 1-2 cell charger question

I've been charging my Etech 2s 1200 batteries on this charger with no problems so far.My question is the instructions say the red light will remain on until the pack is near full charge and then turn green and you can continue the charge for another 30 minutes to fully charge pack.Does the charger ever stop the charge if let to continue? I've been carefull to disconnect the charger within 10 minutes of green light coming on.

If you left it on forever, It wouldn't push the charge above its nominal 8.4V cutoff.

An extra 30 minutes after full green on the LED will just get you maybe 4% (50) more MIH stuffed in @ 8.4V.

Leaving it on a week might get you (guessing) 10 more MIH. Not worth the time, nor good for the cell - LiPolys shouldn't be left fully charged for too long.

Thanks, for the reply. My concern was if I forget to take them off charge right away, it could ruin the pack.Feel better now!
