Default V+ charging

Hello all, newcomer here. Just picked up a V+ 2G model, and liking it so far.

Question: is it better for the battery to let it run down and then recharge, or can I simply recharge it when I happen to be near my PC, even if its not too low?

Hello tylertoo. Welcome. Please see this thread regarding charging Litium-ion batteries.

Recharge it often. Don't wait until its too discharged before charging it all the time.

Thanks, Bobby. Good to find a home for Zen V fans. So far I like the unit even better than I'd expected.

The battery FAQ was interesting. I didn't know that the 'first charge' issues were a thing of the past.

Mine (refurbished) shows firmware 1.32.01. Is this the latest?

No problem. Yup, that is the latest firmware.
