Default New DPI charger question!

Hey everyone, got a few questions. I just received my dpi charger from scotty b. I had a fresh pack of 6-8v batteries and this was there first charge. I ran them
Down to about 47v and just used the charger. It took about 10-12 hours and the green light came on as charged. I pulled the plugs and use my multimeter and got a 52.6 v reading which I think is a good full charge. Very happy!! Anywho, I use my cart at my campground and it may sit for a week or two. I use it during the day and if I hypothetically run my cart to let's say 50v in on day, should I plug it in while I'm asleep to bring it back up or let it run down farther? Also when I leave for the week or two should I leave it plugged in or just bring it to a full charge and unplug it? I'm a worry wart and I'm just worried
About it being plugged in for two weeks straight. I still hums a little even when the charged light comes on. I'm also worried about the elements it may endure while it's plugged in and unattended like rain. What are your thoughts and I appreciate the help in advance. Should I plug it in even if I only use it for 30 min a day. Lol, lots of worrying here.

Sorry for the spelling and grammar. Using my phone at work, fat thumbs.

If its one of his smart chargers, then it will never hurt your batteries leaving it plugged-in - but it sure will HELP. The only time you don't need to plug it in, is if you know you'll be leaving in 5 minutes - otherwise plug it in. Batteries last the longest and perform the best, if they are always topped up.

If weather is a concern, I guess you could place it on the center/floor of your cart when stored so direct rain wouldn't hit it. But leaving carts plugged in to a smart charger while stored, is one of the biggest reasons to buy one.
