What's The Best Battery Storage Method?
I purchased a Seidio 3000mah battery to use for super usage days, such as at the golf course running the GolfLogix GPS/Scorecard app for 6 hours or all day events taking pictures & videos. Because it is twice the size of the standard battery, it won't fit in the Samsung desk dock or car mounts, so I don't consider this battery a "daily use" battery.
What is the best way to store/maintain the Seidio battery? Should I fully charge it or fully deplete it and then put it away, or doesn't it matter? Obviously, I would fully charge it before intended use.
FWIW: After 24 hours of normal use, the battery is indicating 78% remaining. My standard battery would be down to 25% or so by now, so this big sucker definitely works!!
