Yes it is true, especially if you have lead acid batteries.

Yup, charge even if you only ride around the block. Don't leave em connected to the charger forever though, like for a month if you aren't riding. Leaving em on the charger overnight if you go to bed before they finish is ok, but you can cook the battery if you leave the charger on for weeks.
