    i usually start charging it around 12, and it usually has about 20% battery and i plug it off around 7 when i wake up to go to school.

    in my previous phone, i had the LG dare, and i think the battery leaked or something so the battery looked kind of fatter(?) because i think i charged it too long... im not sure* and the battery wouldlnt even last 10 minutes;;

    so im wondering, for the motorola droid when its done charge, does it stop charging or does it still keep charging??

    Perfectly fine, the phone has built in circuitry to prevent over-charging.

    You can't overcharge these batteries like in the old days. Charge as much as you want to, it's fine.

    Yes leaving it charging overnight is fine.

    It will not cause any damage to the battery.

    edit: 3 answers all at once : )

    i think the problem is just something with the lg dare's battery. i have the dare currently and had the exact same issue after about a year and a half of use. think i saw something online about it iirc.
