I prefer re-charging when my cameras have been used for videos longer than 20 minutes. Topping up each time I download, I feel, may shorten the life of Li-ions. I saw a statement by Olympus that the life time of their batteries is 300 charge-discharge cycles. This seems to imply that constant charging is not a good thing.
