As a conditioning measure, I'd agree. But as a method to recalibrate the battery meter it may help. I'm finding my 8700 battery is showing a lesser % life left than it used to, essentially under the same conditions. It used to just go down to 85% during a day - now it gets there after 1/2 a day. I guess the battery may be getting tired after only 3 months (?!) but I'm hoping a discharge cycle will recalibrate the meter. Already tried battery out etc.
