Re: charging archos 5 using dvr station 24 hrs a day good or bad

Li-Po like Li-Ion batteries do not suffer memory effect. They also don't like being flattened. They also don't like being cooked (left on chg 24/7). Learnt to my cost on a dell laptop. A charge cycle is a complete cycle of charge. So if a battery will do 500 cycles and you drain it to 50% each time ...
