    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.

    Really, that's NOT a bad practice, and you can clean it up really easy. One "training" every 3 months.

    Search for FoxKat's posts and you'll find lots of information about his "Safe Charging" methods.

    :blink:

    Wait...I'm FoxKat!

    The Rezound has to have the worst battery management ever, when it dies completely I have to put it in my Nexus to charge :serious: doesn't happen often but every now and then it's forgotten about until it hits 0%



    I have come to a great revolution with the Nexus battery though, get busy enough in real life so you only use your phone as a phone instead of a trick for every trade, been coming home with 50% plus for months now ilovedf
