mojo being so small , temperature can increase to high levels as compared to other devices.

keeping plugged any device with the device on, may expose the battery to continuous high temperatures. it's not the charging, high temperatures which might affect the life of battery. imho if it is not absolutely required keeping the device plugged, remove the charger when fully charged .

I can't agree. All of Chord's DAC products have batteries, even their desktop DACs. You certainly are not supposed to unplug those each time you stop listening.

Low current trickle charge mitigates thermal issues. I don't think heat is a factor in this case.

Right. Also see:
 
  Yes you may listen and charge at the same time. If you have access to power, its best to start charging as soon as possible, as internal power dissipation is lower with battery on blue than on red, so it will run less warm.
 
The battery is specified as a high temperature battery, and I charge at only 25% charging capacity - this is so it will work with 1A USB's, so no worries about battery life when charging.

 Except for the DAVE which doesn't have battery.

I leave the usb charger cable plug in full time on the mojo most of the time with the extension wire , cos I used it for home use only ,

Too much plugging and unplugging extensively on the mojo might cause too much stress on the usb port ,
I switched on / off on the extension wire socket and that's it .

Is there a reason why the Mojo sometimes hisses out loud when you plug in the power? Not headphone hiss but hissing out loud.

I was reading the manual and the manual states turning on line level mode will be light blue but mine is a purple-ish colour. Is that the right mode?

That should really go into classifieds. :wink:
Enjoy your retirement! Isn't that when you get more time to listen to music?!

I can think of a few but probably the best one is if you really don't want to drop it. If of course if you don't care you can unclip it!
It's surprising how much nicer the case looks with a Mojo inside it! :wink:

Has anyone found a neat way of stacking the iPhone and Mojo with the CCK?
I'm very pleased to find no interference problems with the 6S. Other devices I have tried have been unusable.

still trying to find a nice portable bag to carry it around in...handle and shoulder strap
 
going to be approaching a local seamstress who might make me some custom bag made of neoprene.
