Quesstions about complete discharge of Li-Ions
I have read that lithium batteries should never be completely discharged, that complete discharge will ruin them. This point should be checked out with Li-Ion manufacturers. On the other hand, batteries using zinc or cadmium (Ni-Cd) develop whiskers extending out from the zinc or cadmium surface on recharge and these whiskers grow with partial discharge and recharge. Full discharge then recharge destroys these whiskers and they never become a problem. This point needs rechecking also.
