Re: wait till empty before recharging?
Li-ion batteries do have a rated number of complete discharge/recharge
cycles. They have a larger number of parcel charge cycles. Their useful life
is maximized when they are kept fully charged and not let to completely
discharged. Unlike Ni Cads Li-ion like to set on the charger, it does not
hurt them. So keep them charged and they will last longer. Be aware that
Li-ions do have a shelf life and will in time go bad even if you never use
them. Sooner or later you will replace the battery unless you buy a new PDA
first, like I did.
