Outdoor Camera Charging Profile

When the outdoor camera is plugged into USB power should it immediately charge to 100% or is there a charging profile where it will discharge to a certain percentage before charging?

@krstrick  great question and I only know the answer because I called support and asked. Once plugged in  your battery icon will always show full, which is pretty much accurate..  Better programming would change the icon to a plug or something similiar, and if power failed, then the battery icon would be back. Absolutely necessary, no, but is the difference from "okay" programming to "world class" in my option.
