How to prolong lithium-based batteries

"How to prolong lithium-based batteries" is a very interesting article on how to treat your laptop battery. Some of the pithy bits are to store your laptop with a 40% charge and to never buy extra batteries, since lithium batteries have a 2-3 year shelf life from the date of manufacture!

I have an LG 5350 cell phone which has the worst battery meter in the world. It has 4 bars, but if the meter shows three bars and I make or receive a call, it will almost certainly drop the meter down to zero and beep at me to change the battery.
