    Does it hurt to charge your battery if it isn't fully dead? Like if its around 70% or something, and you plan on using it alot tomorrow but you won't have a chance to charge it, does it hurt to charge it up to a full battery?

    Depends on the type of battery, if it is Li-Ion, then supposedly it is better to keep it full... Ni-Cad and some other types can have a memory, so you should run them out. Google on whatever type of battery you have...

    its actually better for lithium ion, letting it fully discharge will drastically reduce its lifetime.
