Default Lithium Rechargeable Battery / Nox 800

I want to take care of the battery the best way, in order to get the most life out of the cell. Now I've lived through a lot of different rechargeable battery technologies in my life. I must confess I'm not clear on the type of lithium cell in the Nox, but more importantly, it's care.
I've read conflicting ways to treat a lithium cell, however, is the conclusion that the more times a cell depletes and gets recharged, that will shorten its life?
As will letting the battery discharge too deep, and do that too many cycles?
So now I'm thinking would a good idea be to just strap a power bank to the Nox, 24 / 7? So if the internal battery never depletes, that's a good thing, right?
Any electronic engineers out there?

All rechargeable batteries chemistry break down over time and with repeated use. Over charging and over discharging make it worse. Most lithium devices/batteries/chargers have over charge/discharge protection built in. Lithium batteries should be stored at about 50% charge when not in use for awhile.
