    am i really this behind because i just figured this out. its kinda amazing. my droid when plugged into a power source, can run without a battery! imma upload a picture showing this.

    Edit: my droid can only run when connected to an outlet, not my computer. probably not enough voltage to power the droid.

    The vertical pic is w/o battery and horizontal is with. Sorry your going to have to slant your head

    I know!!! i was amazed... like i was sitting there i was recharging my backup battery, took the battery out and the droid kept going. then i replugged and im like "whats it doin" and "no way its gettin past the M" lol it did though:D.

    yea i know, but you gotta give me some credit on the name though, it is true.

    :D try using an outlet if you were using a cpu. or if you were using an outlet try using your cpu.

    well, what if you have no battery and you need to do a nandroid recovery?

    It's useful for me . I have one of my OG Droids sticked on a wall with the keyboard slid out and a clock application running . I use it as a wall clock and it doesn't have the battery , only a power source .

    thats actually a good idea. running droid all night w/o ruining battery. however, itd probably be smarter not to do this. it probably costs alot more on the electric bill then just getting a new 5$ battery from amazon.

    I've done it before with mine so its possible. Have to run it off a wall charger, not a usb cord plugged into a computer.

    Useless?

    I want to do it for the same reason I run laptops without a battery:

    Battery will not get hot, suffer from staying charged, or lose capacity.

    It can be useful i agree, if your battery quits on you, you can still use the phone to a certin degree until the replacement comes.

    BTW, it should work without battery on a car charger to... for anyone in need a navi..

    Lithium Ion batteries do not lose capacity due to being charged.

    This is not true. This is from wikipedia:

    Lithium-ion battery - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Never use wiki as a source for proof. Its historicly not correct because anyone can edit it.

    lol yea thats a load of bs. wiki is good for personal use, never should be cited though cuz everyone will say that and you never know maybe, just maybe, some sicko edited a page about a battery and they never changed it back.

    Now that i think of it, this is cool but it really is useless, the only way it may possibly be useful is what chiz said, if your battery dies on you. but it is pretty cool though.

    to play devil's advocate, wiki is the same as a random user from the internet. Unless you personally know the people that created/edit/ and monitor the article.

    and i love wiki, but you should never blindly trust it

    back on topic though...
