    I was wondering if I have several charged batteries (joye 510 and 808 models) and don't use them for a week, would the batteries still hold their charge?

    They will of course lose there charge over time, but it'll be a lot longer than a week or month.

    It takes quite awhile for an LiOn to loose a charge completely. I have old 510 batteries that sat on a shelf for over a year and still had some charge to them.

    Take one after a week and toss it on the charger. I think that you'll find it fully charged. Longer times, there will be some loss, but its really slow. Its going to depend on the battery and its overall condition.

    It'll take a long time for it to have any noticeable loss when being stored. Much more than a week or even a month. They need to be used periodically though. If you aren't using them for extended periods I'd recommend putting them on the charger every month or so.

    A week is nothing in Li-ion terms.

    Lithium Ion batteries don't do well charged and stored for long periods, which is why new ones only have a partial charge. 40% charge is recommended for long term storage. If a Li-ion battery gets completely discharged, it may safety lock itself out and cease to function.
