    Than this...How to prolong lithium-based batteries

    Copied from above site...

    Simple Guidelines
    • Avoid frequent full discharges because this puts additional strain on the battery. Several partial discharges with frequent recharges are better for lithium-ion than one deep one. Recharging a partially charged lithium-ion does not cause harm because there is no memory. (In this respect, lithium-ion differs from nickel-based batteries.) Short battery life in a laptop is mainly cause by heat rather than charge / discharge patterns.
    • Batteries with fuel gauge (laptops) should be calibrated by applying a deliberate full discharge once every 30 charges. Running the pack down in the equipment does this. If ignored, the fuel gauge will become increasingly less accurate and in some cases cut off the device prematurely.
    • Keep the lithium-ion battery cool. Avoid a hot car. For prolonged storage, keep the battery at a 40% charge level.
    • Consider removing the battery from a laptop when running on fixed power. (Some laptop manufacturers are concerned about dust and moisture accumulating inside the battery casing.)
    • Avoid purchasing spare lithium-ion batteries for later use. Observe manufacturing dates. Do not buy old stock, even if sold at clearance prices.
    • If you have a spare lithium-ion battery, use one to the fullest and keep the other cool by placing it in the refrigerator. Do not freeze the battery. For best results, store the battery at 40% state-of-charge.

    And mine just arrived by USPS First Class mail! Instructions say to charge it for 8 hours in the initial charge , so I'll start using it after charging overnight. I did test the fit, and its perfect.

    I put an in order in this afternoon for one of these batteries,case & screen protector.
    $28 for shipping is really expensive, I've shipped clubs to the USA from Canada for less then that and received clubs from the USA as well...

    Hoping my order goes thru smoothly and its a good transaction
