Like I said earlier though, a proper charge circuit. Not all lithium batteries have those circuits built in, it's up-to the buyer to build or obtain proper charge circuits in my experience.

Yeah exactly, I've got a few Lithium Polymer batteries (aeromodelling) that have degraded through:
Being discharged completely (they've swollen up...)
Being left in a discharged state for a prolonged period of time
Being charged too quickly
Being dropped (cell expanded, fizzled, then set on fire)
Being left in a fully charged state

I think they recommend storing Li-Pos at anything between 30%-60%, indeed when you buy a new battery this is around the level of charge they seem to come with too.

Yep, exactly correct.
