    Any idea if it's bad for the battery to leave it plugged in when it's fully charged? Like overnight for example....

    I do it all the time with my regular, shouldn't make a difference with extended. The phone battery automatically stops charging when it's full and the phone is pretty much just setting there with a cable plugged in. Hasn't affected my battery, I think I'm right, I'm not a wizard with how it works, you should be fine leaving it in all night.

    My first cycle was like that. But the batt actually stayed alive at 1% for another 7-8 hours with like app and internet use. I suppose they just need to be calibrate or wtver, cuz my second cycle is going much better. Moderate app internet and netflix use and I'm only down to 89% from this morning til now

    Have had my Bionic for two weeks now and the extended battery for the past week. It's the battery that should have come with the phone(though I can see the business justification for not). Of intermediate/heavy use, I get a good 14-16 hours out of this battery, which is about 4-6 more than I was getting with the OG battery. I'm not always able to get to a charger so this is great.

    I too recently purchased the extended battery and u feel like I'm not getting the proper use time out of it. When i first got it, i drained the battery completely and charged it without using it once. It took about 5 hours for the full cycle charge and i noticed that i get between 8 to 10 hours a day with heavy use. This is great compared to the standard battery. Thing is i read about other users having 12+ hours with moderate to heavy use and i was wondering what are you guys doung differently to achieve those results?
