    I’d say no. Only if you ever need to. I read a lot about leaving it to die completely is more harmful to the battery.

    Once in a while is OK, but shouldn't be needed more often than that

    With today’s batteries it’s not needed and bad for the battery.

    I've run down a battery several time down to 4% sometimes 2% and its been ok..... Don't make a habit of it, but i've done this more than twice...
