Yes the chargers will stop charging when battery level is full.
They do suggest that you do not charge them unattended.

I have charged mine overnight with no problems. Keep an eye on the battery and make sure there is no bloating or that the battery gets hot.

during the charging process is one of the times when the batteries are at the most risk of having issues ,please dont go out while they are charging ,its just not good practice ,if you have not seen what happens when things go wrong, just look at some vids on the subject, and you will not leave them unattended again

Never leave lipos unattended... Just because these are "smart" batteries they are still just lipos in the end....and lipo fires are no joke.
