    Anybody ran the Droid Moto battery to dead?

    I got a warning at 15% and then the red light flashes and now I"m at 5%....

    Will it just go blank if I continue, gracefully shut down or what?

    If so, at what percentage does it gracefully bow out and close down?

    I've done it several times...Not on purpose but just to lazy to plug it in..

    5% is lowest that I have seen....Then the Darkness came...

    Well it actually says to charge it cause your battery is at 15% or LESS so it could of been that low anyways.
    But I ran the battery until it died, it was around the 5% mark and then I charged it to 100%. Just shuts off like any phone, then when you put the charger on it's reboot.

    It helps the battery to run it all the way down then charge it to 100%, so I've read on this forum a couple times

    Common misconception, L-ion batteries do not need to be completely discharged. They do not need conditioned...

    the phone tells you to charge your battery at 15%. i like to run it down till it turns off and do a complete charge. helps the battery last longer in the long run.

    EDIT*

    So far, I just plug mine in every night when I go to bed... if I waited till it ran down, I'd have to wake up at 3 or 4am sometimes just to plug it in. Haven't noticed any bad effects so far, and I'm with backnblack... from what I understand, L-ion's don't need conditioning.

    I heard on this forum that it's best to once a month run it down then do a full recharge to condition it. Like the instructions say when you first get the phone and also heard on this forum, to charge for 24 hours before using it. Of course you don't need to but just saying to help increase capacity.

    Quote from the Motorola Tips and Tricks document for the Droid:

    "Train your battery

    Train the battery by fully charging it and draining the battery until it shuts off.

    1 With the device turned off, fully charge the battery until the LED no longer flashes and remains on.

    2 Let the battery charge for an additional TWO hours.

    3 Repeat the process again (perform twice in a row) and you should experience improved battery life."

    You decide who you want to listen to.
