#31 Don't Drain The Battery
With Lithium batteries there is no advantage to draining the battery. The battery will infact last longer with partial rather than full discharges. There is no battery memory effect with a lithium battery - you can charge the battery whenever you like without fear of reducing its charge capacity, and you do not need to drain a lithium battery completely before recharging it.

Find out more about Lithium batteries here: http://www.batteryuniversity.com/

In response to lots of questions about the battery, I've explained things in greater detail on page 4 of this thread.
