After discharging a NIMH cell, is it better to recharge the cell immediately, knowing you are not going to use the cell for a few months, or is ok to leave it in a discharged state, until just before you are going to use it? I have several NIMH cells, some Eneloops and some Duracell 2650 mah cells. While I realize the Eneloops will hold most of their charge for the 3 months, wouldn't I realize a more fully charged cell in 3 months if waited then to recharge it? With the Duracell, it will probably require a recharge in 3 months since most of the capacity will have disapated. So why bother charging it up right away after using it? In other words, is it at all harmful to leave a discharged cell discharged. Is it better to store a NIMH cell in a charged state?
