But one thing all battery manufactures have in common is the idea of ending charging when the battery is truly fully charged, and with the exception of LiFeP04 batteries - that all really depended on measuring the Amp the battery is accepting.
I have posted many of the technical manuals I found on the Google drive, click on the 'Reference' tag above.
It was interesting to research the LeFiP04 batteries. These have the look to becoming a standard in a few years, prices need to drop a little, but they have lots of good reasons to use them over FLAs. With a proper Battery Manager on each cell, most all issues of the past go away. Charging them looks to also be simple: LiFeP04 batteries exhibit a rather flat discharge curve - holding their voltage constant until they are just about exhausted. When recharging, it is about the same - they hold a steady voltage until they are full, then the volts start to rise quickly! I placed in a default LiFeP04 profile that seems to match a few of the larger batteries out there, but truth be told I thin the profile will need to be customized for each battery and BM combination.
Here is the default table I have as of now:
