    I read a useful article on Gizmode on li-ion batteries. Thought I’d share it with you. Here are the tips (sounds simple, but I don’t 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).

    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
