    Overcharging any battery shortens it's lifespan. Lithium batteries are the most intolerant of overcharging. The overcharging creates heat, which helps destroy the proper chemical function of the electrolyte in the battery. Enough overcharging and you can catch one on fire, but I believe that won't happen with the current charging system.

    Overheating actually causes a chemical change so the the battery cannot store a charge as well... also it usually also drys out the battery electrolyte in most cases.

    The problem is that the charging circuit takes a while to determine how much to charge the battery, and so it charges "blind" for a while. If the battery is already fully charged, then it will become overcharged.

    Hope that is enough explanation.. like I said, google and you will find all kinds of information.

    I don't go to this extreme to bump charge. I just charge until green, turn off, charge again until green. It holds me at higher charge for longer I've found.

    I did that seame thing. Each time I did it it took anywhere from 3 to 10 minutes for the green light to come on again. This morning I did it and the green light came on in a few seconds after plugging it back in.

    What does that tell you about your battery charging circuit and program on the phone?

    Lol I dont wanna shut off my phone five times and do all this.

    What happens if it turns green, and you just left it charge a little more as opposed to shutting off your phone and waiting until it turns green.

    Theoretically it's the same concept, you're just letting your phone charge for longer than it tells you to.

    Not the same at all, because once the light turns green the system stops charging it up more and at that point just HOLDS whats already there.
