This way I ensure that my battery isn't being damaged, and I am not taking away 2 days worth of its total life over the next 3 years, even though I'll probably have a new phone in 1.5 years, and also even though I could buy a replacement battery on Ebay at that point for $10 or so.

Now where is the icon for sarcasm for me to add to this post.......
