    Should NOT hurt it. Just don't make a habit of it. Will probably take all day to charge it.

    You guess 100% drained? Did you try turning it off and back on? I'm hoping it may turn itself off after a time of inactivity. ???
    Good luck.

    Discharge any lithium type battery to zero and they are toast.

    The ST-16 should auto shut down BEFORE it would take the battery to zero. Just like a cell phone. ST-16 uses a Lithium Ion battery so you should be ok.

    Good News. the St16 even know it was at 0% and would not turn on did charge fully and works. It did take a while to charge it.

    @druiz100, keep an eye on it for a few cycles to make sure it doesn't do anything weird. Also, how is the new bird. Does the live video on this one stutter as well?
