Default Battery Life

Please Login to Remove!

Ok, here goes another dumb question. I had a curve with an extended battery and hardly ever had to recharge the thing for several days. I know the Storm uses much more battery power, so I was wondering if I keep the phone plugged in all day at work (while it is on); will this drain the battery life? At work, I don't have good reception so it is always looking for better so I know this drains the battery also. While using your Storm on the internet alot, what is the usual life for the battery? Thanks all so much in advance!

I would charge it to 100% and then another quick charge when needed. Don't drain it to 15%, that damages the lithium ion battery.

Yep, the FAQ and the article on BBNews have tons of good info.

Donxxx8217;t drain your battery every day to 10-20% of its charge. You can actually expect battery problems by draining the battery. Again, to repeat, top-off your charge during the day whenever convenient - even ten minutes in the car or at your desk will give you an extra 20-25% charge.
