My old 60gb PS3 conked out last year. So I bought a slim, and obviously, got a free controller with it.
That controller remains unopened (I bought it on 23/12/2010) to this day, am I harming the battery by having it uncharged or even touched for so long?
I've been using my 3 year old dualshock 3 all this time which is only just starting to have a shortened battery span. Should I switch to the other one? Will I be shooting myself in the foot in the long run?
I always thought I could use this current (3yearsold) DS3 til its death then shift over to the new (1 year old but never used) one, but now I'm a bit worried.

If you plan on not using this dual shock controller for a while again, it's best to store it around 40% charge to maintain its longevity; leaving it for long periods of time at higher charges like 80 or 100% will reduce its capacity.
EDIT: Must circuits which utilise a lithium battery will detect when it has fully charged and cease charging to prevent over charging.
