Re: How to prevent the charging of the batteries?

I know that one should not keep the batteries charged at 100% all the time - it is said to be better to keep them around 33% or so. Experience (from before I knew that) seems to confirm this, the previous batteries died after a life on almost-always-at-100%.

Note that your batteries will die after some three years even if you do not use them. Certain conditions ( temperature, charge and charge/recharge cycles ) may prolong the life a little bit but do not expect them to life forever :-(
