Dickie: I'm not a battery expert, but... At the very least, I would recommend unplugging the battery from the ePods. The ePods puts a small load on the battery even when it is "off". It can't hurt to remove this load. The battery will still die on its own due to internal losses and may eventually reach the same state that would if it was plugged in.
Regular maintenance on the battery would probably be better. On my spare ePods I just did the unplug thing since I would never remember to charge the machines.
If you find better advice (which shouldn't be hard <g>), please let us know.

RE:EPOD not touched in a year - battery OK? (modified 0 times)
I have heard it is a pretty general rule to never store rechargable batteries of any type, without being fully charged, and disconnected. I had a couple of Li-Ion ThinkPad battieres in storage for a couple of years and one went bad (couldnt charge anymore). It was also the battery that was in the machine during the storage period, whereas the identical spare battery was fine and still had 80% charge.
