    Best Battery Practices

    Advertisement



    So I wanted to get opinions on battery life. Some people suggest draining the battery every few weeks or so, etc. What do you think is the best practice to keep your battery good?

    Draining these types of batteries may actually degrade their sustainable life. It's best to just let the battery go over the course of a day or two, then let it completely charge over night. Many people even charge their batteries on a daily basis based on usage. I personally never let my battery get below 50% charge, plus I'm always having it on the charger when I listen to music or in the car in the car carrier.

    Ahhh good to know. I charge mine every night, and sometimes during the day too. I almost never let it go all the way down either.

    I charge my phone overnight connected to my PC but use it as much as possible when not at home. I also have an extended battery in my phone which gives me up to 18 hours of battery life.

    I charge my battery twice a day and keep it above 50%
    And also if my battery gets hot while heavy usage I give it a rest.

    Rabbi, I hope you have upgraded to the latest available storm OS... They have been know to increase battery time substantially...

    Personally I can never let the battery go down as I may need to hit the road anytime, so whenever I'm near an outlet or a computer, I'm charging...

    The way I see it, no matter what you do, the battery will last you atleast a year... And its worth buying a new one after that duration, especially if you didn't have the added hassle of worrying when and when not to charge...

    yeah man, I'm running .109 and the battery life is much better than the .75 or any other Beta since then, but still thought I would find out peoples opinions and see if they are doing, I am doing.

    I charge mine every night. I never let it die as the cells on lithium batteries should be constantly active. If

    I charge my phone every night. I have read so much articles about lithium batteries, and sometimes it can be confusing. Although there is something that is present on most of them, "Always keep the cells active". I interpreted this as dont drain it??

    I dont know, as soon as it turns red i charge it. I always carry my chargers everywhere I go.
