    USB Charger - overcharge protection?

    I need to buy a few extra USB power sources for use around the house with my DroidX. I was curious however if these USB power sources switch to trickle pretty reliably? USB AC Power Supply Wall Adapter MP3 Charger US Plug

    Build-in Smart IC chip can recognize a full battery and automatically switch to stand-by mode to protect your cell phone battery from over charging


    Thanks,

    So far north in NY I smell maple syrup when the wind blows out of the west.

    All modern chargers have both a thermal and voltage-based protection failsafe. It'll kill the charge if either exceeds set values unless the charger itself says otherwise.
