3 batteries

I have 3 batteries for my K-3. Presently I keep one in the camera (duh!) and the other 2 in a Think Tank battery holder and in my camera bag.. They are numbered 1-2-3, and I use them in that order. But sometimes I go a long time before needing them (if there is a few weeks between major shoots). Is this the best way to use them? Am I risking battery drainage? Should I keep one in the charger all the time? Ready to take some advice.

IIRC don't keep batteries under constant recharge. It's probably best to use them in order, and keep them in rotation. Store fully charged, they'll drop over time but not bad...

I don't think you'e supposed to fully discharge for extended storage, either, but I'd have to verify that.
