I'm almost positive topping up is fine.

I've never let mine go completely dead. I Don't even know if that's possible as the camera would probably shut down before it completely drained the battery. I don't know if my wall hung charger drains before recharge but somehow I doubt it.

Topping up is fine. NiMH (that's what it is isn't it?) are fine with that. Apparently every now and then they should be completely discharged. This is my understanding of all NiMH from my reading.

K7 Lithium-ion should be fine with topping off.
