Li-Ion batteries - fully discharge or not?
1 week ago

I've always understood these have no significant memory effect, and indeed read somewhere that fully discharging them on a regular was not a good idea. But in a leaflet included with a third-party battery I just bought for my camera, it seems to say the opposite (in poor English of course). Is it best to discharge the battery fully in the camera before changing to a fully charged spare, or does it really make no difference. Anyone know the truth of this?
