1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Recently read that with a new battery it is a good idea to intially run the battery to "zero" 2 or 3 times before beginning to recharge it on a regular basis. I didn't think that was required with lithium ion batteries...

    Comments?

    I've read that too - and I recently read that you should never run them to zero... :icon_question: ... Personally I never do. I just run it down very low (no specific level) and then charge to full. Over time (a week or so) my batteries always seem to improve in life-span. I'm working on my new battery now.

    Unlike the older batteries the new generation of lithium batteries do not have a memory. You should not run them down on a regular basis it can be harmful to the battery. Its OK to do this every once and a while but you should recharge them between 20 and 30%.
