1.       The wrong decision will harm playback quality that can be obvious when the end products is demonstrated to the customer.
2.       The wrong decision will shorten battery life and will either make the end product less competitive because it's talk time or playback time will be shorter than the competition or because the end product must be larger and heavier than the competition to accommodate a larger battery.
