Long ago there were issues with NiCAD batteries and battery management. Advices from those bad days continue today. I think it's best to let people believe what they want but today, we just leave them on AC.

But you appear to have a warranty issue with the new machine.

Current designs do not overcharge. If they do, you've found a product defect and should scream loudly.
