My original battery in my D7000 was down to 18% after only 334 shots. I did have a lot of "LCD time" going through the menus, playing with live view, etc, so am hoping to see some of those phenominal results I've read about when I settle down to just shooting. I'm not a fan of live view. I don't examine every image right after I shoot it, but do take a look more often than I should.

Anyway, here are my questions: I have a spare Nikon brand battery. (I tried an off-brand with my D40X and didn't like the performance ofit - I think it's better to stick with Nikon on batteries.) Would it be better for me to keep it charged, or wait until the battery in the camera is low before charging the spare? Does the
EN-EL15 have a memory? If so, I think it would be better to run the battery in the camera completely down before changing it out - is that correct?

Thanks in advance for any advice.
