Hi everyone. I was just wondering what is the best recommendation for extending the life of 18650 batteries? The instructions on my Olight SR90 for eg, suggests frequent recharging. It also says that if you don't use the torch for a long time, to recharge it at least once a month.

I've gotten in the habit of recharging my SR90 after every use and I do this too for my Thrunite Catapult V2. Is this correct?

Also, what about discharging? Is it better for the batteries to not discharge too much? Is it better to only allow a small discharge of battery and keep topping it up?
