    Consequences of Leaving the keyboard Un-Charged?

    If I were to use my keyboard dock for a couple months, then not use it for a few months, will that permanently deteriorate the battery? Is there a point where letting a rechargeable battery sit kills it?

    A newb question I"m sure, but I just don't know. Perhaps I should wait to charge the keyboard when school actually starts?

    Thanks.
    Matt.

    Matt I'm not sure. But I would probably just leave it until school starts like you said. It would be just like it was sitting on a shelf in a warehouse somewhere just waiting to be sold.

    Thanks for the advice Mickey. I might have to do that, although I'm leary of not testing it while I can still return it lol... maybe I should just charge it up. *silly decisions* >8*)

    I don't think it will hurt either way because they are shipped with a partial charge anyway. So go ahead and use it for a few days and then run it down and store it till school starts. It ought to be fine.

    Here's some good info on Li-ion batteries and the best way to store/maintain them: FAQ's on lithium batteries, lithium ion batteries, and rechargeable lithium batteries

    Basically don't store them at low charge since they could self-discharge below the point where they can be recharged again.

    Solara is right - but don't fully-charge it either! Li+ batteries are best stored in a partly-charged state. Be sure to charge fully after storage before using again.
