Nickel cadmium batteries should be fully discharged from time to time. Not sure about lithium ion batteries though. Each type has some sort of limitation associated with the particular chemistry.I saw a new type the other day. Think they were made by Sanyo. Apparently they don't lose much of their charge if they are left on the shelf for a long time. That seems to be a big problem with many of the current rechargeable technologies.Anyway, if it was up to me, all these batteries would be banned and portable devices would have to be hand (or foot) cranked. This would cut down on a lot of the silly calls people make, it would also be good exercise for everyone, and it would keep a lot of toxic crap out of the trash.Also, when anyone was making a silly call, we could point it out to our friends and say,"Look at that stupid cranker."
