    Is it best to drain these batteries close empty before recharging to prolonge the life or it doesn't matter.

    TIA!

    I've heard it not good to drain the battery then recharge. That works for Ni-cad but Lith-ions.. Just when you can, put it on a charger.

    It says in the manual to keep it on the charger as much as possible. Never let it drain.. bad for these type of batteries.

    Off to school with you! Here's a link to Battery University where many of the myths about batteries are dispelled.

    lith ion batteries use cycles u have so many cycle charges before the battery eventually dies, so if you drain ur battery half way then charge to full thats only half a cycle so i full cycle is only complete when u drain another half or if jus drain to 75% and charge all the way then u have only done 3/4 cycle and so on so wether u drain half way then charge or all the way and charge its all the same
