Example - you are using a flashlight and it gets dimmer and dimmer - you turn the light off for a minute or so - when you turn it back on it is fairly bright for awhile, but quickly dims again. Each time you turn it off and then back on, the shorter the period of time the light is bright again. Turn the light on and leave it on until the battery is completely drained and the likelihood of the battery rebuilding it's charge is decreased.
