Enova All-80 (Klarus C8) how significant is the potential undercharging on NIMH?

I just ordered a Klarus C8, which appears to be an Enova All-80 rebrand. The price was very low but I still wonder if I should get something that does a closer to ideal job charging Eneloop batteries. Mainly I’m noting HJKs observation that:

It looks like the charger is using maximum voltage termination here and the voltage is trimmed to stop just about where the eneloop batteries are full. The charger does not have any top-off charge after the voltage termination, this means the batteries may not be complete filled.

Given the price difference isn’t huge, maybe something like a Nitecore D4 or Xtar VC4 might be a better choice for Eneloop as I don’t really need eight slots or the USB charging. But if the possibility of undercharging with the C8 is really nitpicking then I could stop doubting and be happy I got a good deal?
