    Do you have a charger specifically designed to do that? Otherwise, that's not happening. Trickle charging is basically floating a minimal charge equal to the loss rate and is very very very bad. Your Nexus will not do that without being forced to. If you mean it's just sitting on the charger, it is steadily discharging and then charging between preset intervals - and that is more or less safe; it's regulated by a circuit in the device.

    Okay, that makes sense. With older devices this was an issue, however the Nexus you have will not allow itself to "overcharge" and it doesn't continuously charge. It will slough off a few percent and then move back up - this is typically invisible to the user, as it will typically display 100% the entire time through the UI, but it is pretty efficient.
