I hadn't noticed any degradation of the battery, it was still often lasting
4-days to a week.  But, then, the battery lasts long enough that by the time
it needs a charge I've often forgotten just when my last charge occurred.

The new Sony had 3/4 charge on the meter when I opened the box and turned it
on.  After two days of my normal reading rate it hasn't changed.

Not enough data to mean much.
