Memory Effect

Repeatedly recharging batteries before they are completely depleted leads to a phenomenon called "memory effect." This is easily solved by allowing the battery to totally discharge before charging again.

My body had fallen into a sad state of memory effect last week. Like a cordless phone on its charger for several hours each night, sleep had stopped recharging me very effectively.

As anyone who saw me on Friday can attest, my batteries were totally drained by Friday. The 27 hours of sleep I have gotten since has really charged me up, though. Maybe I need to pull all-nighters more often.......
