    If you have a smart charger then why not? If you have just a trickle charger then I wouldn't risk it.

    If you have a smart charger, go ahead and top them off. As previously stated, if not, don't worry about it much.

    everythings alredy packed and i'm not going to unpack.

    i figure if the batteries have about an 85% charge i'll be OK

    You should be fine, i lost my charger a few days before an event and just ended up using a battery i charged a few weeks back. It survived the day. (btw i obviously tested it out before hands)

    If you have a smart charger yes. If not then go buy one.

    my original question was about the capacity of NiMH batteries charged a week before, without unpacking the 3 guns, removing the batteries, topping them off, and putting it all back together again and repacking, and not being used. the answer is the all worked fine for aproximately 4 hours of playing on a CQB outdoor (1/2 acre) field. 2 of the 3 were loaners and i ran the other. during the last 2 matches they all began to falter a bit so i called it quits for the guns. i could have brought the backups out but decided not to.

    so the answer to my question is - yes, they should be fine.
