Charging digital camera

Post by JOJO »

When is best to charge a digital camera;
When the battery is very low or after each use?
Thanks again,
Joanne

I use at least two batteries, rotating them in use. I only charge when the battery is very low, although Lithium batteries are said not to have any "memory", so it's not as critical as older battery types.
Best regards

John

"Rechargeable lithium-ion batteries are less susceptible to “memory effect” and may be “topped off” with a quick charge virtually any time."

Hope this helps, Joanne.
