    My battery is almost finished. I have like 1 outta of 5 bars left and I want to go out tomorrow and take pics and not endin up taking 20 pics and then the battery is finished.

    Is is a bad idea to charge it although it's not fully undepleted yet? Can it injure the battery?

    I use a Canon 450D / XSi

    and yeah, it usually doesn't cause issues

    people do it for laptop batteries cause they're expensive, but these can be replaced for ~15 bucks so don't bother

    Woah, Live View fucking eats battery power. The battery indicator wasn't even red and after taking like 2 shots with Live View the battery died.
