2. If situation allows, do not discharge the battery until zero or totally flat… less frequent deep discharge usage will definitely improve battery life.
3. Never store battery without any charge at all. Keep at least 40% to 80% charge before long term storage.
4. If battery is to be stored for long term, it is advisable to discharge and charge it up once every 4-5 months.
