Off, it will charge faster. Be sure to let the battery run completely empty every once in a while. Not a bad idea to leave it on the thursday before a weekend game, and charge it up that friday.

Reason for this has something to do with crystals building up in the battery or somethign or other... I know it prolongs the life of a battery... I don't think it maters with a lithium ion batter though. So you might be all set.

But yeah, leave it off.

if you left it on it would just use the battery while it was charging ... thus just charging it slower...


o and next time in the title put something that has to do with the topic instead of some generic title =) mmm k

LitOn batteries do not make the "crystals".

Neather do NmH batteries.

The problem with both of these types of bateries over NiCad os that they cannot be recharged as much (AKA they will only take a charge X times whereas NiCad can be recharged Y times more than LitOn/NmH which is worth the fact that you don't have to totally discharge them before recharging them)

Letting it drain fully with the batteries spyder uses is not an issue. I'm not fully aware of the science, but one type of rechargables does have to be fully drained before recharging to prevent damage. Leave the marker off.
