Normally if you run a LiIon battery all the way down you can hit heating conditions that will deform the metal microtubes within the battery and degrade its lifetime or damage it.

Protection circuitry built in tries to prevent that - and if I thought for an instant that you'd face that risk, I'd have never suggested this route.
