    Try George Meyer AV in Los Angeles. www.georgemeyer-av.com, (310) 820-1113, sales@georgemeyer-av.com .

    I have had my Chord Hugo there twice... once for volume control replacement and once for intermittent USB port operation. I am delighted with their work, and they were recommended by Chord and its US distributor Bluebird.

    It’s as stressful, if not more so, to leave lithium batteries plugged in 24/7 compared to cycling them normally. The best practice is to charge to 80% and drain to 20% with a monthly full cycle from dead to full charge. There is no memory effect so short charges will not result in shortened capacity. Remaining near full charge (above 4.10V per cel) for extended periods of time is very detrimental to the longevity of all lithium batteries.

    Actually unplugged is when the batteries suffer more, because the cycling circuit can't do the discharge/charge cycle. Basically for modern devices it makes no difference as long as it's plugged in, the only factor is how fast it goes through the cycles, when not playing it will still cycle, but at a much slower peace. (i.e. the circuit will do a discharge/charge routine, e.g. from 95% to 85% and back to 95%, repeating this as long as it's plugged in)

    Read about lithium battery longevity on battery university. Most charging circuits ‘top up’ to full when left plugged in as the voltage naturally drops over time. That’s why Rob changed the charging circuit to not keep the Hugo 2 topped up in desktop mode (at least beyond4.10V per cel).
