Except it doesn't stop charging the battery. It charges the battery very slowly, so that the battery will stay at full capacity. Which isn't a good thing for extended periods of usage.

Also, think about it logically. If it quits charging completely then the battery would go empty if you left it in the charger long enough, because rechargeable batteries drain slowly overtime, even if you aren't using the device.

In SA2, it's Super Sonic and Hyper Shadow.

No, it stops charging. It then CHECKS the battery charge level, and when it reaches a certain threshold, it starts charging again.

Actually plug the GamePad in and watch it - the light is on while it's charging, then it goes off. Then, when the battery level drops a bit, the light comes back on.
Gaming is like a pair of boobs - Sony and Microsoft fight over whos boobs look more realistic, while Nintendo is about having fun with them - Walkiethrougie

The reason it keeps charging the battery is to compensate for natural battery drain that happens when its at full charge.
Its a very good thing, because the alternative is never having your batteries fully charged.

It does not overcharge the battery.
