I bought it about a year ago and charged and discharged it about 10 times, but it can be used without problems. It can be operated for 2.5 hours (transmission 1: reception 3) with 5W operation when fully charged. It can be operated for about 4 hours including power reduction.
It depends on the usage environment.
