Default lithium-ion rechargeable batteries

Hi. Does anyone know the discharge properties of the lithium-ion batteries that are used by camcorders and the new Panasonic DMC-FZ10? By this I mean 2 things:

1. what is the discharge curve like in use - more like an alkaline or NiMH?

2. do these batteries lose charge when not in use like NiMH or will they hold their charge in storage?

I've yet to find this info via Google searches. I find plenty of info on NiMH/NiCad and standard non-rechargeable lithium AA's. Thanks.

Rechargeable lithium-ion batteries discharge much like NiMH batteries during use. They go on strong until nearly the end, when the voltage drops rapidly. As for discharge during non use, lithium-ions will hold their charge for much longer time than NiMH.
