We recently had a thread where somebody had left AD200 batteries in an unpowered charger for a week and the batteries went flat.

Anyway I take the battery out of my V1 (which I use quite infrequently) as it does no harm to do so.

What is actually the advantage of these Li-ion batteries over low self discharge batteries such as eneloops? I was considering the V860-II but reading these horror stories I'm glad to have picked the TT-685s (and using the price difference as part of the budget for a studio strobe).

This isn't a horror story.

Well, if you leave a battery in a device and they can't be recharged in a normal way then that is pretty bad IMO.

It becomes 'horror story' if it becomes 'most Godox devices will kill their batteries in 3 months' - and that part is not true.   And yes you are right, a dead battery is not fun.
