Googling "how to charge LiON battery came back with this as top result":

Also, as the other member has said, for storage, it's better not to fully charge the LiON/Li-Polymer battery, and when you go out for a shoot, just fully charge it beforehand.

Google about LiOH and you will see how wrong you are with this approach with the LiOH technology. What you think is beneficial to your LP-E6 is actually killing them faster than you think.

Then, I have been wrong as well in regards of battery maintenance.

I'd like to better manage my cams' batteries... A dirty quick googling for LIOH didn't bring definitive results. Do you happen to have a bookmark to a web site -or page or whatever- that correctly describes the maintenance procedure for LiOH, according to your experience?


Well, my googling abilities seem to have gone as this time of the day

Thanks for the link and good advise.
