    Yes, I've read understanding battery life.

    BUt I'm wondering how much it affects your phone by doing the initial charge for 24 hours and also doing the next 3 cycles for 24 hours.

    Does it make a big difference if you do the first 3 cycles an initial charge for 24 hours form just doing first initial for 24 hours?

    I have never charged it for a full 24 hours. I let it charge overnight once (about 10 hours) and now generally charge for 2 or 3 hours when I charge it (I don't trust the 100% charged message so I leave it on longer). My battery life time seems to be great. Of course YMMV.

    I just read some pdf from motorola. It says to charge it up for 2hours after it says its fully charged, should I just do this, or do full 24 hours?

    Battery Life is a major problem for a lot of people. I think it comes in 4 different packages:

    1: Battery : Do you drain the battery to zero or never let it drain down

    completely ? I do not know the definitive answer but this is the

    recommendation of some battery experts:

    Lithium-ion batteries should never be depleted below their minimum voltage (2.4 to 2.8 V/cell, depending on chemistry). If a lithium-ion battery is stored with too low a charge, there is a risk that the charge will drop below the low-voltage threshold, resulting in an unrecoverable dead battery.[citation needed] Usually this does not instantly damage the battery itself but a charger or device which uses that battery will refuse to charge a dead battery. The battery appears to be dead or not existent because the protection circuit disables further discharging and there is zero voltage on the battery terminals.

    I have not tried to drain the battery yet.

    2. Charger : Many people who have bought after market chargers have had

    interesting experiences from auto phone calls and emails made in

    sleep time to discharging while plugged in etc. I have several

    after market chargers, some work and some do not.

    3. Killer Apps : I believe they are helpful although they also drain battery.

    Some people feel that the LINUX system auto shuts down

    unused programs. I am not sure.

    I think TasKiller and Adv Task Killer work but use more battery.

    I personally use Adv Task Manager and find it works well for me

    4. Usage : Of course the biggest drain is usage. Any battery no matter how

    good will drain with heavy usage. i.e. game playing, listening to

    music, gps, bluetooth, wifi etc. The main drain is how long is the

    screen on.

    Conclusions: 1. Battery: defective ? Replace. Drain or not drain ???

    2. Charger: defective ? Dispose

    3. Killer apps: Do you need them ? I like Adv Task Management

    4. Usage: Review usage in Settings/ App - Spare Parts

    Modify especially in areas of low coverage. A lot of

    the programs kick in automatically and if your

    coverage is not good it continues to search and

    uses battery. That is what the Killer apps do.
