FZ1 Battery Question
 
I just bought a FZ1 and I have the following question.

The manual recommends completely discharging the battery before recharging. Why and what will happen if I recharge the batteryt with say 1/3 of its juice left ?

FZ1 battery discharging
 
In the old days a rechargable battery used to form a memory if it was not discharged each time. However with the Lithiun ion batteries, this should not happen. Maybe they are just watching their backs. I personnaly do NOT discharge a lithium ion battery each tmie, so I would disregard this note in the manual.
