Default Battery charging question

Sony S544 - new - does anyone know if the battery has to be completely depleted before you charge it? I know some electronics (shavers come to mind) need to be totally drained to avoid memory issues. Appreciate any input. Tks. PatViN

No, it does not have to be depleted. I usually recharge once I'm down to about 50% battery life.

You might want to read through the Battery University, it's a good resource for practical battery knowledge.
