Hi Frostschutz:

Will read this later - thank you! (bogged down in "holidays" house-painting chores). In essence, are you saying to treat the Story HD battery exactly as you would NOT treat old Ni-Cd batteries which had the "shallow charge memory" issues? I assume charging from mains via same USB cable is perfectly OK too - ie, don't HAVE to charge via computer?

Thanks again, folks!
