Is it safe to leave the blackberry charged overnight?

Absolutely ok. Top off the charge anytime you can during the day.

I've had mine for over five months now. Whenever I am not using it (at my side or in hand), it is connected to the wall charger. Never had a problem so far.

I do it every 3 or 4 day depend on the battery level and charge it overnight.

Default What's the difference...

...between when you go to Options > Status and battery is 100% and holding ALT > RACE and it says battery level is 75%. Why the two differing numbers?

Thanks!

Li Batterys do not have a memory like Nicad's do. It is ok to keep on charge

Default battery life

I usually charge it at the office for a few hours. I was told by a RIM rep that you get the full life of the battery when you use it until its low then charge it for 4 hours. It works well for me. sometimes i dont charge it for 2 days if im not using yak-on.

Here's something to note: if you charge via your wall charger, there are times when you'll see that the battery is only 95% charged. If you charge via your USB through your computer, it will read 100%. It's a little glitch but trust that either way, you're fully charged.
