Thanks for the info.
Just for general knowledge, for our Amps/DAPs that use Li-Ion or LiPo, for the purposes of prolonging battery life, what do you guys recommend?
Like avoid fast charging? Charge and top up whenever possible? Or wait till it fully depletes? Don't charge to 100%?
Avoid fast charging --> SURE!
Charge and top up whenever possible --> Ew, please don't do that, the batteries don't like being 100% full all the time (that's why Sony's DAPs have the option to never charge above 90%)
Or wait till it fully depletes --> EWWW, even worse than keeping them topped up at 100%
Don't charge to 100% --> What Sony is doing, but in reality, from time to time, you need to charge fully to refresh the batteries. And this is very inconvenient if the device doesn't natively support.

For me, here are what I do with my devices:
- Use them normally, don't quickly discharge them (playing games / streaming on mobile data / etc.)
- Keep them cool, avoid hot places like tables with direct sunlight
- Never use quick charge, even stock quick chargers
- Never let the batteries fall to 0% (except from time to time to refresh them)
