when to charge FZ200 Battery?


I am a new member, living in England,  and have just bought a FZ200; the battery having been newly charged, seems to have lost on of the three bars a bit quick, in about a week.

I have been messing (learning!) about the camera though not taken many photos yet, but I am surprised about the apparent rundown of the battery, in about 10 days it has lost one of the three bars .

From this forum I have changed the economy setting (Thanks) and will keep the camera when not in use off IA.

What is the best time to charge the battery please?  When there is one bar perhaps?

Also living in England, I see there are some other members from there; have they any suggestions for a second battery, that will work the battery level meter,  as is well known that Panasonic batteries are expensive.

Yours Peter Bunce
