Should you run battery down before recharging it? Or is it OK to charge battery.... BlackBerry Pearl forum
Should you run battery down before recharging it? Or is it OK to charge battery.
Its ok to charge it...And my advice is, never let your battery drain so much that the device shuts it off.
The device will try and do all that it can to conserve energy to keep from doing so (Example, it will shut the radio off when it reaches like 3%), but the best bet is to keep it charged up.
And if it does turn off the radio, I suggest you shut down the whole thing until you can charge it. Some of these new batteries have electronics that will permanently prevent them from charging if there is an error condition detected and too deep a discharge may cause this to trip. Then the battery becomes useless. Has something to do with shorted anodes and overheating and the unusual results.
