    My question's simple. I'm pondering getting a Nomad 3 (20gig) and am wondering about the battery. It comes with an "11 hour rechargable lithium ion battery". Are the old problems with battery memory and such still around? If I get this and use it an average of 2-3 hours a day five days a week ... will the battery degrade and start being good for only 9 hours, 7, etc..? Also, I don't know if I can just recharge it each night and not have problems.

    Thanks for anyone who can chime in usefully.

    As far as i know Lithium Ion has very little memory issues, you might lose an hour a year of charge, but then thats pretty good.

    and yes you can plug it in whenever you want to.
