K-7 battery question

I've had my K-7 for about one month now, and I really love it. The battery life is impressive, but I get a little worried when I have a big outing planned and I'm not sure how much longer it will last. Is it okay to charge it when it's still 1/2 or 3/4 charged? And is it okay to charge it for a short while (an hour or two) if I don't have time for it to fully charge? Thanks.

Yes and yes, perfectly fine.

Why don't you get a couple spares?? Then it won't be an issue.

Thanks for the quick reply, and yes a trip to the local camera shop for an extra battery is on my to do list.

And don't forget, if you have a grip, you can always switch to AA's in a pinch! And if you don't have a grip, that is reason enough to get one
