After the initial full discharge, full charge battery conditioning
cycles, how do you charge your phones?

Do you continue to let the battery discharge almost fully, or
do you "top off" when it is partially discharged?

I wonder if this has any effect on daily battery life.
Thanks.

After conditioning at first I just charge when it needs it. I usually don't even turn it off just to charge anymore.

I charge when I can, just in case... cause you never know when you might be unable to charge... example, freak with terms storm and your house loses power... something like that...


The one thing you want to keep in mind is NEVER EVER KILL THIS BATTERY COMPLETELY. It could fall below the fail safe.. if it does, the device would need a factory cable to take a charge...

This happens to people quite often when they get the device wet. :)

What is a factory cable?

A factory cable is a cable that is used to program and charge the phones initially... you can buy em on amazon, or we have a thread somewhere that shows how to make one...

While this phone has an excellent battery, I charge it just like any other phone I've ever owned. Old habits are hard to break...
