Thanks, I'm feeling deeply honored...

Charged is correct. And to show you what a real smart and amazing
expert I am, here's another tip: Store them in the fridge.
The fridge keeps your tomatoes fresh, your milk and your cheese.
Same with batteries. Self discharge is basically a chemical process,
and those have a tendency to get slower when it gets colder.
Every month or so I would take the batts out, put them in the MP,
use them until the MP shuts off (fully discharged), recharge them and
put them back in (the fridge).
