Kobo touch battery type, charging methods, chargers, memory?

Hi all,

Got my wife a touch for her birthday last October and it's been a dream so far. I can't read on my iPad anymore without pining for the eInk screen

But I have a few questions about the battery on the touch, as there is no information on it in any of the specs.

Is the battery NiMh or Lithium Ion? Has anyone noticed a memory with the battery? And as for chargers, I've used standard USB wall chargers for pretty much everything, but I saw on the kobo site that it suggests a 500ma charger, the one I use is 800 (.8ma).

Anyone have any thoughts on the subject?

Thanks all

Nick

To answer a couple of your questions:

Lithium Ion

An 800 mA charger is just fine.

AFAIK there is no battery memory issues.
I think the Touch actually wants 800 vs 500 (500 was the older 2 versions) but from what I understand it's more important to be at or above the required than to be exactly what it asks for.
