    Batteries...

    So how do you take care of rechargeable batteries? I hear you have to drain them all the way every now and then. What about overcharging? Anyone know?

    It depends, most batteries should be drained fully, then recharged.

    It depends on the stuff inside of it. I am unsure of the exact metals but if the battery has "memory" then you need to drain it fully each time. Phone batteries(mostly) don't have "memory" CD player batteries such as AA size mostly are, it makes them cheaper and it is easy to drain them all the way through normal use.


    What do you mean by "those flat ones"???

    He probably means the batteries that go on the back of phones.

    I know most cell phone batteries need to be fully drained but not all of them. Find out what type of battery you have then check to see if you have to drain it all.
