Slate has an article on debunking some battery myths (for cellphones, laptops, camera's, etc.) as well as a few helpful hints to make yours last longer.
A couple of useful tips from the article are: to have optimum battery efficiency you want to keep your battery charge level between 20% and 80% and if you plan on storing a battery somewhere for extended use, it's recommended you charge it to 40% before storing it. For the most part, you don't need to worry about batteries losing "memory" anymore; that is old technology in Nicad batteries, where almost all high-end electronics use Lithium-ion.
