It's a shame that Canon don't have a refresh button on all their chargers (which would discharge and recharge). My EOS 1 charger has this feature and I use it every time I've left the camera for a couple of months.
When you are dead, you do not know that you are dead. All of your pain is felt by others. The same thing happens when you are stupid.

red: good point, but it'd cost canon a few battery sales, so that's why i guess they dont....?

(or is that being too cynical ?)

Another trick is to simply leave the camera on standby if you're not going to use it and it'll slowly drain. As a 6D owner I can also turn on the GPS & Wifi which will help drain a battery in hours.

Of course if you're really lucky or motivated you'd just shoot often and naturally cycle them regularly.

There was a Canon advisory on LP-E6 charger issue, might be worth reading in case it solves your problem;

I highly recommend Duracell or Energiser batteries for it. Both are a lot cheaper than Canon's own brand. The Duracell are £30 directly. It's a brand name that you can assume to trust or at least replace if needs be. http://www.duracelldirect.co.uk/digital-camera/canon/oem-pno/lp-e6.html
