While it's charging, this light will flash. When it's completely charged, the…light will turn solid.…Now these batteries are very forgiving in their charging habits.…Unlike old rechargeables, you don't have to drain them completely before recharging,…so don't hesitate and top them off before you go on a long shooting trip.…From time to time though, it is a good idea to drain the battery completely and…then give it a good solid charge.
