And what's about leaving the DAP in charge with an USB cable even when fully
charged? Sometimes I plug my DAP to the notebook in the night and leave it
until the morning, and surely I don't set the alarm clock to unplug it! ;-)

Since a couple of weeks I can't see 100% charge even after a long charging
period. The battery is not so old, it's about 10 months old... :-(
