Default Charging Battery

What is the low down on charging your blackberry. Should you wait untill the unit is nearly dead before charging or is it okay to charge every night no matter how much life is left?

For the first 3 cycles, run it down to 10-20%. Then after that charge anytime you want. It's best not to let it run completely down all the time.

I charge my phone every night. I have had amazing battery life, but I have nearly 4-5 hours of talktime daily and roughly 60 emails that are responded. So, I have to charge it every night.

I guess this has not affected my battery life significantly for the last one year that I have used my phone.

I love my BlackBerry/CrackBerry and will fight anyone who says different.
