Do I have to discharge the battery before recharging it?

No. Routinely running the lamp until it exhausts the battery will reduce the life of the battery.

Lead acid batteries need to be kept fully charged, especially when they are to be stored for long periods. When in storage, we recommend they are recharged every 3 months.

If the battery is left in a discharged state for more than 2 weeks, it will damage the capacity of the battery and may then need to be replaced.
