Default Charging Overnight?

Please Login to Remove!

Hey everyone,

My Storm battery barely lasts through the day so I usually charge it overnight. Is this bad for the battery? I have heard mixed things.

Thanks!

Should be fine. Charge should stop when full.

No, totally wrong. The battery actually turns into a pumpkin at midnight. So be very careful where you charge your storm.

Did you turn it off and give it a full charge when you first got it?

I have charged my BB battery overnight for years. I think it's fine.

Mine goes in a drop in charger every night. Never had an issue.
