Help Battery care?

Just out of curiosity and maybe even to help out the soon-to-be-hd owners, is there any special way to initially charge or take care of the battery so the best battery life can be obtained? I know those lithium ion batteries (i think is what they are) can be very fickle in how they act, especially if charged/discharged improperly...
Thanks in advance!

Li-Ion batteries don't have the "memory" that the old ni-cad batteries, so doing a full charge/discharge cycle isn't necessary. In fact, it's discouraged. Li-Ion batteries perform their best when they get small charges here and there. If you can keep the battery at a charge of 40-80%, and not let the device get exposed to temperatures above room temperature for extended periods of time, the battery will last a long time. Storage of the battery should be at about 40% charge. Since you can't remove it (without voiding the warranty), just put it away at about half charge if you plan to not use it for an extended period of time.

It's been proven that the biggest drain on a Li-Ion battery is a combination of a full charge and high heat.
