Can you charge a partially drained battery on the Nikon D1 without ruining the life of it or do I have to wait until the battery is completely drained before re-charging?....

    Don't worry about it. Many of us use both types of cameras and after
    all many 35mm cameras use batteries as well.

    I would think that a modern film camera would be as hard on batteries as a
    digital one. They almost all have automatic motor drives to both advance and
    rewind the film......But, since I don't own a digital camera, what do I
    know?

    "Topping off" is fine. About every 10th top off, hit the refresh button when
    you can let it go overnight. That slowly drains the battery to what the
    engineers feel is correct and recharges it. Some say that running a new
    battery through 3 refresh cycles extends the ovrall life of the battery.
    Urban legend??
