I tried posting this in "Parts and Accessories" but only got one answer. Though I'd try it here. I'm looking for some knowledgable input on topping up a battery just prior to riding. "I have been reading up on battery care and for the most part I don't think I want to spend too much time worrying about it. I do however want to do what I can, within reason, to help prolong the life of my battery. I do a few things now that are fairly simple, like not leaving it out in the garage when it's freezing, never letting it get completely drained, always having less than a full charge when storing. These things are easy for me to do. What I'm wondering is if it is less damaging if it is only fully charged momentarily, just prior to a ride, or is just the act of fully charging it, for what ever the length of time, that does the harm? I'm always having "low battery anxiety" and will often topp off just prior to a ride." What I've heard is that fully charging a battery is hard on it.
