    I don't really think it makes a difference, as long as your BB indicates charging and you leave it until it's fully charged most of the time.

    Re: Better to charge via USB connected to PC, or wall charger?

    I notice when I charge my BB on the home charger it takes 1 and a half hours to fully charge it, and it lasts all day. When I use a car charger it charges in less than a half hour, and lasts all day. When I charge on the pc it takes about 2 hours, and lasts all day. So I think the only difference is length of time charging.

    Wow when I charge using usb cable I'm usually ready to go in about 45 min and 1 hour on the regular house charger.

    I charge mine mostly from the USB cable at home. That way I can leave my wall charger in the car and use it if I'm out or in the car with an AC adapter. I never bothered investing in a car charger. I've noticed nothing negative from USB charging all the time.

    It's slower via USB but that's it.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~Just observe the usual battery rules and ensure you discharge and recharge fully occasionally. I know this is easier if you have a spare battery, but it definitely prolongs battery life.

    Question Re: Better to charge via USB connected to PC, or wall charger?

    I got a question > Is it bad to put the BB on the charger and use it as the power source, while using the BB?
    Thanks!

    giamburrasca, I don't know if it helps to cycle the power on new batteries, they do not have the memory effect the old NI-CAD betteries. I keep my battery charged at all time, but there should be no need to run it completely down from time to time.

    Re: Better to charge via USB connected to PC, or wall charger?

    Thanks guys for all the help. I tested my waters last night and went ahead and charged it using the data cable. Definitely did take a little bit longer than the wall charger but never the less the "quality" of the charge is the same.

    Has anyone noticed that if you turn the radio off it charges faster but cuts off at 95%???

    I know DCooksta, and I toyed with the notion of putting that in my post. I still find that battery duration and overall life are better for a judicious DE and RE charge from time to time, try it

    I'll give it a try, maybe it'll give my BB a rest from charging many hours of the day. But I use it heavily and don't want to get caught with a dead battery. I don't think I could put the BB down for that long.

    Wall charger is faster.
    But what I like to do is use the wall charger and then put my phone in standby mode(u know holding the mute buttom on top) it takes like 15 minutes to get a good charge. It's good when you're on the go.
    And the usb cable yeah it takes a while to charge it
