No. With the newer batteries, it's bad for them to be completely drained before charging. If possible, avoid completely draining the battery.

Maximum life for lithium batteries is at 70% charge and in the refrigerator. The capacity decreases with every charge cycle so the more you discharge and charge it, the faster it will lose total capacity. With a properly designed charger it seems you would always be better off using the charger to reduce the discharge/charge cycles. The additional loss due to being at 100% charge is probably not an issue.
