Battery Type Characteristics

Lead Acid Batteries

  • Just like the battery in an automobile, lead acid batteries work best when kept fully charged.
  • Do not like to be completely discharged.

Lithium-Powered Equipment

  • Best if never discharged completely.
  • Best stored at half-charge if long-term.

Nickel Metal-Hydride Equipment

  • Memory effect if not completely discharged periodically.
  • Lose charge relatively quickly during storage.
  • Needs to be kept on charge always (because of second point) except for periodic cycling (because of first point).
