battery care

Solved by Ralph Landry1 on Feb 6, 2013 6:25 AM Solved

There are a lot of misconceptions going around about how to care for Lithium-Ion and Lithium-Polymer batteries.  Discharging the battery to unit shutdown regularly does nothing good for the battery.  In fact, tests show that the life of the battery is significantly shortened by following that routine.  Optimium balance of battery life and usage seems to be in the range of discharge to 50% charge remaining and then fully recharge.  That gives a battery charge cycle life almost four times as long as the deep discharge proceedure.
