    Please read this site:
    The high-power lithium-ion

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Do not discharge lithium-ion too deeply. Instead, charge it frequently. Lithium-ion does not have memory problems like nickel-cadmium batteries. No deep discharges are needed for conditioning.[/FONT]

    I know once the battery bashing starts there will be 1000 suggestions to deep cycle batteries. Android may benefit from a discharge cycle, but I can't find anything authoritative on this yet. Perhaps a developer can help?

    As far as I can tell, the only reason for doing a deep discharge is to get an accurate calibration on your battery monitor. So while its not good for the battery to do it repeatedly, it might be ok to do it once or twice so that you get accurate battery readings going forward (which will serve you better in the long run).

    This matches my thoughts on the matter.
