    Poor coverage will also negatively impact your battery life.

    Trickle charging is almost always better for the battery -- regardless of the battery tech in question.

    Battery life is definitely 10x better. I used it pretty good yesterday and only made it to 65%. Thanks for the suggestions, I will continue to charge with my pc

    Re: battery life is HORRIBLE

    That's really strange why the PC charge should do any differenly than plugging it into the wall. My wall charger puts out the same +5V the USB port puts out. Something really to look into here.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I may try this also. My Pearl slim extended battery only lasts one day and I thought it was supposed to last longer also. But I'm not always near a PC.

    I never would have thought the pc charge would hold longer than a wall charge... I'm going to try this now and charge my 8700c on the pc overnight tonight.

    The pc charge is slower but yet more lasting charge
    Where the wall charge is the rapid charge method

    A general idea with battery is the faster it charges, the less charge it will hold, plus it decrease the battery's overall life cycle

    Many battery rechargable machine company don't want you to know is that their latest and greatest "rapid" charging station is acturlly real bad for your battery and plus it actually don't hold charge as long as the traditional normal recharge method

    Update: I am now getting close to 2 days (even with extreme usage) AGAIN with my slim extended battery.

    my 8700G usually get's about a week worth of battery
    Defeat is not the worst of failures. Not to have tried is the true failure.

    Well lo and behold... the USB charge DOES hold a better charge than the wall charger. Every other phone I've had before BB works the other way round.
