Hey guys, I dont know much about the technical part of this, but in the past I have read that it is bad for an electronic device to stay charging after the battery is fully charged. Is this a concern with the Droid? or does it have some kind of auto shut off? Does the dock help with this in any way?

i don't think overcharging is really an issue anymore. i've never had a problem charging my cell phones overnight (this being the 6th one) and have never had to replace a battery or felt like i was losing charge length by doing so.

This is my Final Answer
From Motorola & Verizon's User Guide:
Battery Charging Notes for charging your phone’s battery:
• When charging your battery, keep it near room temperature. Never expose
batteries to temperatures below 0°C (32°F) or above 45°C (113°F) when
• New batteries are not fully charged.
• New batteries or batteries stored for a long time may take more time to charge.
• Motorola batteries and charging systems have circuitry that protects the battery
from damage from overcharging
hell it says 24 hrs it was like 10 minutes !.
thanks hookbill didnt know.
when the light on the usb port turns off it stops charging. The screen will say charged and the bolt on the icon will go away. You are now fully charged and running off wall power.
