    Yes. I think so. The charge light does go off when the unit is fully charged. But here is my thinking and I am not sure: I doubt it is a smart charger in the sense that I think it will still consume power when the Flip is fully charged. My understanding is some smarter chargers (e.g. the newer generation iPad ones) will cut off or greatly reduce its power consumption when the device is fully charged. So when I am not sure, I turn off my power bar to avoid wasting electricity to feed the power supply unnecessary.

  • I have been leaving it charging all the time. I bought it a few months ago. But now that you brought up this question, I wonder if that would lessen the battery life. Have you found the answer to this question yet? Thanks.
