The issue I think is this. Some types of batteries have memory in the
sense if you change them when they are half charged they will henceforth
only discharge halfway. Batteries generally put in laptops and cell

discharged and charged at will. Also it is my belief that the circuitry
in these devices will not allow over charging.
