Hi, all :)\r\n\r\nI own a Creative Vado HD camcorder and am wondering (as I have for some time) what is the best way to maintain its rechargable lithium battery, to ensure I'm getting the best from it in terms of life between charges. For instance, I've heard it said that rechargable batteries should always be run dead before recharging. In other words avoid 'topping up'. Is this true? \r\n\r\nAlso, I quite often end up going to bed with my camera on charge, knowing that it will reach full charge during the middle of the night. Will it harm my battery leaving it on charge after it has reached full charge?\r\n\r\nThanks in advance.
