    Do rechargeable batteries still suffer if re charged before they are exhausted? Particularly AA batteries and the Battery in a Nikon D200? Thanks, Don

    More importantly, you will get an ANALOG FAIL!! when using a D### (any make), with any kind of battery.

    Well, be careful. Batteries remember everything. Be very careful what you do or say around them...:cool:

    They say not, that the newer Lithium batteries have no memory. But, I got into the habit of having spares, running them down before switching, and constantly rotating them, and they seem to last for 5 or more years.
    However, the batteries in my and my wife's laptops, which don't 'cycle' because they just sit while plugged in most of the time, rarely make it past 3 years.
    I'll stick with completely cycling them, I think.
