    Battery pro tip: when it gets under 5% then plug it in.

    The first tip is free :p

    I also use the 15% rule. I've seen so many of FoxKat's post that I'm too afraid to accidentally let my battery die!

    Lol ya foxcat scares me too with his battery knowledge! I usually just charge it when it drops from 100% to 99% so as not to anger the battery gods!

    Well I bought the VZW Rezound extended battery on the half price deal. It has been in the phone for a month or so. I decide the night before last to do a battery training excercise. So here it is with moderate use at 41 percent.

    I probably have the worst practices for battery: plug in when going to bed, unplug when wake up...
