    Curious anyone's thoughts on letting a battery completely drain, before charging VS pluggin it in every night, whether its low or not?
    Does it develope a "memory", and thereby cut the useable charge down?
    Thanks.

    Well, that big ol' can-o-worms just exploded open... :)

    Like most everything else, you'll find that folks disagree on the answer to this question.
    Personally, I'm of the 'plug it in whenever you want to' group because everything I know tells me that Li-ion batteries don't develop a memory like the old Ni-cads did.

    Go here, and read the 'optimizing your battery' thread, after that you can form your own opinion (or not, whichever).

    The reading, not the doing, just yet.
