You are correct in that Li-ion do not develop a memory. Like all rechargeable batteries they do wear out over time. This process can be slowed by not keeping them at full charge longer then they need to be and by keeping them cool.

The rate of degradation of lithium-ion batteries is strongly temperature-dependent; they degrade much faster if stored or used at higher temperatures.

Consider storing the Li-ion battery between 50-75% in the fridge if you are not planning on using it for an extended period of time.
