Hi,

Is it good practice to keep the phone connected via USB to your computer during the day ?
Can this be detrimental to the life of the battery, or is the battery one of those that is best when topped up all the time, not left to drain and then charge ?
I remember reading something similar concerning iphone batteries and am wondering if it's the same sort of idea with these batteries ?

Thanks

Lithium ion batteries don't have a "memory" problem the way NIMH and NICD batteries do, so leaving your phone connected to a charger shouldn't be a problem.

baycruiser is correct, however, over time the lithium battery will develop crystals from not fully discharging, from time to time is good to run the phone dry and charge from scratch
