With regard to the battery the 56 volt charger manual says "5.  When the battery pack is fully charged, the green LED will stop flashing and will shine green continuously.  The power indicator on the battery pack will go out.  Wait until the cooling fan stops, remove the battery pack from the charger and disconnect the charger from the power supply".  I've seen several similar questions about leaving the battery on the charger all the time and the typical answer is that it's OK to do that.  The manual seems to imply that the battery be removed once it's fully charged. 

If I leave the battery on the charger (plugged in) all the time when it's not in use am I violating the warranty on the battery and/or the charger?

Yes, and step 6 right below step 5 says - " The battery pack will fully charge if left on the charger, but it will not overcharge. If the battery pack remains on the charger for one month or more, it will perform self-maintenance and drop to 30% charge capacity. If this occurs, reinstall the battery pack on the charger to recharge it fully."
Some here remove their batteries after charging. I do, but it's more because I worry that something "might" happen with battery on charger and I might not be home when it does. Others leave their batteries on the charger pretty much all the time. Doesn't really seem to make a difference.

Hi Michael! You would not be voiding the warranty by any means. We do currently, however, recommend removing the battery from the charger and tool when not in use.
