Jon - with this mod - its it ONLY charging with the scanner powered on and plugged in or is it charging powered off as well (and NOT in charge mode?

Is it ok with the batteries under charge all the time?

It charges when the scanner is plugged in, regardless of whether the scanner is turned on or off. At a full charge, the charging rate is low enough that the batteries are not damaged even though they are being constantly charged. The same charging principle is used as in cordless phones and other devices; keep the trickle charge current under .05C and the battery will not be damaged even if charged continuously. The idea is to keep the batteries fully charged while the scanner is on USB power, without damaging them.
Uniden scanner internal GPS installations--making mobile scanning work the way it always should have.
