Um, to the first question, No.
A peak charger is an auto-cutoff charger.
But an auto-cutoff charger is not necessarily a peak charger.
Let me explain;
When a peak charger reaches peak, it cuts off automatically.
But when, say, a timer charger runs its course, it also cuts off automatically.
In each case the 'auto cut-off' result is the same, but the 'trigger' action is much different.
Just something to keep in mind in case you find yourself reading the flashy packaging on a deeply budget charger.. just in case. Popsracer's advice is otherwise spot-on and quite helpful.
