    Having seen what can happen to lipo in rc planes, i'm always a little more careful with lipo and li-on. I'm surprised that this hasn't happened before.

    I have a problem with my nano's battery. The dam thing lasts too long. I like to get a good charge and then almost flatten a battery before recharging it (10-20% left)... Even if I use my new nano a few hours a day it will last more than a week! So when I want to plug it in to update new podcasts and so on. It'll charge itself prematurely.
    Maybe I'm just obsessive compulsive about it but in the old days a phone or device battery needed some taking care of so it would last.

    More or less, LIPOs shouldn't be discharged completely and it does no real harm to keep topping them up.

    That was then.

    With rechargeable Li-*** batteries, it's best not to run them down all the way.

    Explosions with Li-Ion batterys are perfectly possible, Usually these days its very uncommon due to all the safety features in the batterys
