    I read a useful article on Gizmode on li-ion batteries. Thought Id share it with you. Here are the tips (sounds simple, but I dont comply with them!) See link for full article.

    Do not let it run out completely all the time. Full discharge puts a lot of strain on the battery
    Do not keep a Li-ion battery fully charged all the time, either. If you don't use your battery it might suffer from capacity loss
    Keep your battery in cooler temperatures. Hot hot heat is not good for it
    If you're gonna store your battery, leave 40%-50% charge in and store it in a cool place (i.e. fridge).

    "• If you're gonna store your battery, leave 40%-50% charge in and store it in a cool place (i.e. fridge)."

    Seriously?! I'm not too sure about that because there's a lot of moisture inside the fridge. I think room temp is okay as long as it is in a cool dry place.

    How does it suffer from capacity loss if you keep it charged?

    Hmm… I thought letting in run out completely is the best thing… guess I effed up my battery by doing that :S
