If it was harmful to the batteries, I would have a bucket full of bad ones by now. I always keep at least a couple charged for Search and Rescue if the need arises. I cycle them whenever I can but many times they sit for over a week fully charged and I have yet to see ill effects. Maybe it's not the best practice, but it seems to work for me.

It's OK. Just keep them in a dry cool place or your case if your have one.

Always observe voltage sag after takeoff to ensure the battery is healthy. Otherwise, after a week I usually put batteries into storage state, which is somewhat hard to do with the batteries...

Not with a UP120AC! The 'storage' feature alone was worth the money!

But you need to get two adapters in addition to that. I got mine here http://www.quadcam.ch/shop/ but I think this dude "Ralphy" on here makes them too.
