    Ummm......I don't think you only can charge a camera battery until it is full?My battery charger cuts off once battery is full.

    hmm, for any batteries i use (not only for cameras).
    i give them a initial charge of 8hrs, and only charge again when it's fully drained.
    I do this for 3 cycles. batteries going good =)

    For any rechargeable batts, just charge until it's full. Don't have to bother by the "first charge X hours" theory.
