Battery life

This post is based on the assumption that the Switch will have a (similar to) lithium ion battery. If there are reasons that it'll likely not have lithium ion, then you can ignore the rest of this post, but further explaination would be appreciated.

I am wondering how charging behaviour will affect the Switch. For example, a smartphone battery lasts longer if it isn't charged to 100%, mostly kept between 80-20%. I am most likely to play the Switch on the big screen. My question is, seeing as how the dock will probably charge the Switch while docked, won't battery life continue to degrade as it will be charged 100% most of the time?
