Hello Shatsi,

Nickel based cells (both NiCd and NiMh) perform better if they occasionally receive a full discharge. Most electronic devices give a low battery signal before the cells are completely drained.

A general recommendation is to do a complete discharge/charge cycle about every 25 normal use cycles. This keeps your cells at their best performance.
