    You mean this one?

    Wouldn't that void the warranty?


    In the third post under Spoiler: Is it alright to leave Mojo plugged in, 24/7?

    The answers are yes.

    There is also an answer from a Chord rep which I can't find, that says the same thing.

    I did point out that this mod would void the warranty.
    Having said that, there have been a few posters with Mojos that are out of warranty, who when faced with a failing battery, have chosen to remove the battery, rather than replace it with a new one.
    So technically it is possible, but this option will not suit every owner.

    I’ve read the posts from Chord, and every single post since this thread was started. The majority of battery failures also happen to be from users that have left their Mojo plugged in 24/7. I’m just giving you a fair warning that the possibility is there, and it’s also a reason why there was a desktop mode implemented in Hugo2.

    Yes, the initial Chord position was that operating the Mojo 24/7 plugged in was ok, and that is why that statement exists in the FAQ in post #3.
    I think the Chord reps did continue to promote this view, for a long time.

    However @x RELIC x is right to point out, that the user feedback has been that leaving Mojo plugged in long-term 24/7, does seem to be well correlated with battery issues.
    The design of the Hugo2 was more cautious, and included the desktop mode, with the result that reports of battery issues are few and far between.

    In my systems, the sound was always noticeably better with the charging cable unplugged. Also, I do agree with @miketlse notes on lithium batts and not to have them under constant charge. ymmv

    Any suggestions for a portable source source that will also do Tidal or Roon over wifi to pair with the Mojo?

    TIA

    Ah thanks guys that's helpful

    I know Poly has had its issues, as I’ve been using since it was first released. But, for me at least, one thing that was perfect from the beginning was Roon over WiFi around the house. Using it right now with the Aeon 2 Closed and it’s amazing.

    There was a post on the Hugo 2 thread, about the Hugo 2 being on Black Friday deal, so I just checked if other Chord dacs were on offer as well.
