Helpful information? Did you actually read the manual, or research what Shimano representatives say is required in managing Di2 batteries?
What makes you think I haven't tried Di2? and why is it relevant to the issues I've raised about battery longevity?

No one in this thread has significant experience with Di2 battery longevity, so none of you are qualified to contradict what Shimano says about their batteries, or what Li-ion battery experts say in general about the technology.

It's a pity some lectric heads can't discuss an emotive purchase unemotionally.

Maybe it's because the dribble you keep on posting concerning the battery can be found on just about any battery operated electronic device.

And at least we do actually have first hand knowledge of how the battery etc is actually performing without having to dig up so called facts.

Right that's it, I try to politely remind people to settle down and get ignored. BAD IDEA PEOPLE!

I've had enough of this religious claptrap and veiled abuse, thread locked.

More than one of you can think yourself lucky I have to get to bed or I'd be smacking heads. I still might do it if tomorrows review heats my blood again.
