Default Refresh D1X batteries...

Refreshing stops 'memory' build up in batteries.
If you recharge with, say, 80% capacity remaining, and you do this several times, the bat will narrow it's range of performance.
It will only operate 100% to 80%....never utilizing its full deep cycle.
Every 20 times you recharge your battery....use the Refresh button.
Place a white piece of tape on your charger, everytime you recharge it, place a black dot on the tape with a Sharpie pen. After 20 'dots'...Refresh it. Refreshing more than every 20 times is harmful to total battery life. Also...manage your batteries...label them: A, B, C etc. ALWAYS Use them in order.

Forgot to mention:
Refreshing drains the battery, at a safe rate, to near-zero...then recharges it.
Rebuilding the full deep cycle profile.
