Ok -- thanks for the info. Now, after this was done, does your battery charge
normally? Or do you have to continue to do the cooling tricks to get a full
charge into it? I'm curious if your method actually helps to "refresh" the
battery so that it becomes more "normal" -- or if it is more of a permanent
method of getting the full charge in (which would end up not being worth my
time, I'm afraid).
