Is it bad for the battery to try and keep a full charge? Should I wait till its at a certain percentage to charge it? When and how often do you recommend I charge it?

It is better to "top it off" than let it go completely dead. With that said, I usually don't let mine go under 30%.

Lithium Ion batteries don't have any "memory effect" like the old NiCad batteries, so you can charge them whenever you want. In fact, letting them fully discharge to very low levels too often will shorten their service life.

So it is better to top your battery off, than to let it go and run really low.

You can't overcharge your battery either, the Droid has an overcharge protection circuit built in.

I do not know what is wrong or right, but mine goes on every night regardless of bat level. I only charge in the car when on long trips on GPS

Given the fact that the droid is designed to sit in a multimedia dock and act as an alarm clock, overnight charging every day would be fine. I have the extended battery so I have to go by mV rather than percentage.

One at home, one in the Exploder and another at work (PC). I'm juicing whenever I can. Can't get enough juice, need more juice, anybody got juice? Please just a little juice, just a little, please. More juice.
