Storing Game Controllers with Lithium ion batteries

Is there a best practice for storing controllers with lithium ion batteries to get the most life out of them? 

 

As far as I understand it, lithium ion batteries are best stored at around 50% capacity, but is there a general rule of thumb for pulling them our once a year or any other maintenance routine? Simply replacing them when needed might be more efficient actually.

That's all I do, plus I don't obsessively try to keep them topped off. Not sure if that matters, though. I remember hearing that they have X number of charge cycles, so leaving on a charger forever can be detrimental. It's possible this technology can have some kind of logic built-in to intervene, but again, I dunno.
