To my knowledge lion batteries have no memoryeffect, so you should be able to charge a partially empty battery if the charger automaticly shuts down when the battery is full, I cant think of any reason why the FZ5 charger should not work this way? but to be on the safe side maybe someone could confirm this!

Yes, that's right -- they can be handled in much the same way as the battery in your car.

Top them up whenever you wish (at least one of the hybrid cars also has them , I think, and they're on constant topup.)

Think of a LiOn battery like my wife thinks of her credit card; if there is anything left to charge on it, she does!!

LOL @credit card analogy.

Li-ion's continue to deliver near to full capacity if you top them up frequently rather than draining them deeply. There are issues with storing a Li-ion for an extended period - you need to ensure you have at least 50% charge on the battery. They have an approximate 2 to 3 year life expectancy regardless of charge cycles. This may not be the case with some of the new formulations that have been announced the past 6 months.

Good battery link... http://www.batteryuniversity.com/index.htm
