Thanks for the info; moving the switch to ALK (and leaving it there) seems like a fool proof way to ensure that the batteries do not get overcharged. I normally use hybrid Ni-Mh batteries.
I have a Maha and also a LaCrosse battery chargers; I plan on charging a spare set of batteries while running the scanner (unless I'm mobile, and I'll save the battery power by using the DC1001 car adaptor).
