\015 How do i discharge a new camera battery after the first insial charge.\015
Hi anna ... you probably dont want to do that (discharge the battery) .. depending on the battery chemistry, you cant gain anything and can damage the battery ... for long term storage, lithium batteries like about 70% charge and dont like any complete discharge .. in fact better chargers will refuse to charge the Li battery once the cell voltage goes below a threshold .. when your lithium battery shows dead it is actually still higher than that minimum voltage.. once the cell is below that critical value then conductive bridges start to form inside the battery, that can cause battery overheating and possible explosion during subsequent charging .. so lithium batteries want to stay at least partially charged .. ... NiMH batteries can be fully discharged but that doesnt gain you anything .. they have no "memory effect" .. and deap cycling doesnt improve performance .. normal use cycling of a new battery may increase its capacity slightly as it "breaks in" but deap discharge is not needed or recommended .. for long term storage they want to be in an initial state of fully charged .... in NiCd there is thought to be a "memory effect" which is actually an overcharging effect ... those cells can sometimes benifit from a few deap cycles (conditioning) to erase the effects of over charging, but NiMH and lithium have mostly replaced NiCd in anything less than several years old (since Cd is toxic) .. ... there is only one case where lithium batteries are purposly discharged ... thats on some laptops or other equipment that use relitively large batteries ... but thats not for the battery its to reset the "power remaining meter" in the laptop .. that is a calculated value that tries to measure discharge time vs charge time to guess at what state the battery is in .. it can eventually become inaccurate due to accumulated errors .. discharging then charging the battery will reset that to a new starting point .. so purposly discharging LiON and NiMH batteries is not a good idea and doesn't .improve anything ... there are a lot of people that think it does but thats just habit left over from the NiCd days ... even some manufacturers of electronic stuff still believe that, but you can easily look at the battery manufacturers site to get their view .. you will find that the age old custom/habit of battery cycling is wrong unless you are still using the old NiCd cells ....
