English term or phrase: trickle charge
Definition from Electropedia - IEC:
method of charge applied to a battery wherein the state of charge is maintained by a continuous, long term, regulated small electric current NOTE 1 – The trickle charge compensates self-discharge effects and maintains the battery in an approximately fully charged state. NOTE 2 – The trickle charge is not suitable for some secondary battery types, for example lithium cells and batteries.

Example sentence(s):
  • As the charger senses the voltage rise and change when your batteries have reached a full charge, they will then automatically switch to compensation charge for about 30 minutes then to trickle charge which will keep your batteries fully charged until use. Logic Battery
  • The current rates used for trickle charging batteries are critical in maintaining a full charge and in preventing an overcharge condition. The importance of the trickle charge rate comes from the design, maintenance and operational requirements of an electrical power system. Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory
  • Whether you are charging a new battery for your personal watercraft or plugging some juice into an old one over the winter, trickle-charging is the only method to use. Boating Life

Definition from MOT dictionary:
Ylläpitolataus, akun pitäminen jatkuvasti varauksessa heikolla virralla

Example sentence(s):
  • Ylläpitolataus, eli Trickle -lataus lataa akkua hyvin pienellä latausvirralla ja mitään katkaisutapaa ei ole käytössä. Tämä latausvirta on yleensä joitakin kymmeniä milliampeereita. Jotkut laturit siirtyvät tähän tapaan varsinaisen latauksen päätyttyä. - Ari-Pekka Liljeroos  
  • Ylläpitolataus Eräät akut ja laturimallit sopivat myös ylläpitolataukseen. Akkua ladataan tällöin pienellä virralla, joko jatkuvasti tai sysäyksittäin. - TUT  
  • Lataus päättyy asetetun ajan kuluttua ja vaihtuu ylläpitolataukseen. (English translation in the same document: Once correct charge time is reached the RED LED will extinguish and the charger will switch to ‘trickle charge'.) - Battery Logic
