Looking for a LED curcuit that will tell me when my AA batteries are charged using solar cells? Answered

All the DIY solar chargers seem to use a feel test or a multi meter to test if batteries are charged. Is there a curcuit utilizing an LED like those on manufactured chargers, that will let me know when my batteries are charged, and possibly put them in float mode or turn the unit off?

Like Lemonie said, charge through an LED, when it goes out, it's charged. Though, I have to say this: don't charge your Alkaline batteries. I have to say that so someone doesn't get the bright idea to do so.
