I have and most of the information I have found is from dubious
sources, no proper research results.

Well how about allowing us to benefit from the knowledge you have
gained? Can you quote a few good references please?

You have to run such experiments carefully and be sure to eliminate
effects which may be connected with the charger itself. The Revo
charge control seems to have problems with monitoring the battery
state sometimes. When I had this problem I did a hard rest and then
recharged the battery fully before switching back on. Yes, I know,
this is anecdotal:-)

Absolutely. However with the Revo you have no choice the charging
control is built in.
