I thought Li-Ion batteries were designed not to suffer from the "memory
effect". Is that a myth?
If the devices support user-servicable batteries, than
I concede the
point. IME tablets do not have that property.
Is there a legitimate reason why not or is it a case of planned obsolescence
(most undesirable from an environmental point of view and costly to the
purchasor over the long run).
At the very least it creates an industry for repair technicians who can
install new batteries for people who can't do it themselves.
