Solution 29770: Improving Battery Life on TI-Nspire™ Handhelds with Rechargeable Batteries.

Do I need to discharge the TI-Nspire rechargeable battery completely to improve battery life?

It is not necessary to discharge completely the rechargeable battery on the TI-Nspire handheld.

The batteries in the Nspire handhelds are li-ion (lithium-ion) batteries that do not have the 'memory effect' that some other, older rechargeable technologies had. In fact, one of the ways to improve the usable lifetime of these batteries is to not let them fully discharge if possible.
