    I read a lot of different battery info on these sites and I wanted to point interested parties to "Battery University" where they cover Lithium Ion batteries in great detail. I picked up this site on one of the forums a long time ago and haven't seen it mentioned in a long time.

    If you just want a quick summary on how you should be treating your device's battery go here:
    Frequetly Asked Questions on How to Charge Batteries

    You can then look over the links in the left column to learn even more about how the batteries work and how best to take care of yours.

    Key points I picked up were: (1) Never let your battery run down very low and (2) try to charge your battery with the device off. I think it's hard to charge with it off, especially phones, but it was interesting to learn why.

    Hope that helps!

    (I am going to post this on the other forum I frequent)
