Charging Your GPS Receiver's Batteries

The following post is from a new (new to me) blog - LifeHacker.  Their post is about charging and maintaining the charge in your receiver's batteries.

"There is a lot of confusion surrounding this issue, mostly because lithium-ion batteries are different from older, nickel-based batteries (which suffered from a nasty memory effect not present in lithium-ion batteries). You're right, though—charging them incorrectly can decrease their lifespan. Most lithium batteries should last you a few years, but improper care can decrease that lifespan, meaning that your battery will be unable to hold a charge—or unable to hold as big a charge as it used to—quicker."
