    Chasing the newest technology (with new dollars) when your current technology (paid for) does thejob is a losing game.


    Determine if your current system is not working first, then look at other/newer option.  My humble opinion.

    Flash is a hungry animal.


    I levae my system plugged in most of the time.  It charges to 100%, discharges slowly to 95% then recharges to 100% (save "constant charging").  But I can because  do not travel with it as much as you.


    I still us it on battery to 40% once a month.


    Do NOT run it dead ... lithiumion batteries do not like that.


    But, remeber you bought portable for a reason.  If you cannot conveniently plug is all of the time while you are on the road, just set aside $10 a month for the new battery you will need at 1000 cycles and only plug in on the road to keep it at or above 30%.


    Do not try to limit cycle-usage if it limits your productivity.
