    Hi, my question might seem stupid but somehow I really want to know the difference between [charged] and [100%] shown on the screen when I charge the battery.

    Charged = fully charged & 100% = maximum charge, means the handset can't store anymore juice.

    Thanks. does it mean everytime I charge the phone I have to keep it charging until it shows [100%] instead of [charged]?

    Thanks. I was confused since I rarely got 100%. Most of the time is shown as charged. Will keep charging tonight and see.

    The phone charger cuts out at 100% and then the phone begins to slowly drain from using apn, data, gps, syncing, standby etc depending on your settings, and will drop back to 90%, when it hits 90% the phone will begin to charge again back to 100%. This is why sometimes despite charging for hours, the phone is only at 95% ish when you unplug it.

    Hi I have charged it twice during these couple if days. Yet it is always shown as charged not 100%. It takes about 3 hours to charge. Should I keep charging it til it shows 100%.

    This will probably sound really stupid to some, but will leaving the phone plugged into a charger all night cause any long term damage??

    I never charge my Desire at night, usually charging during the day via my laptop when at work or for a couple of hours at home. My wife however is a nurse so does not have the option of charging during the day when she is working, opting to leave her Desire plugged in all night.

    :confused:

    You should be fine leaving it plugged in overnight. The newer technology batteries are better suited to cope and both the phone and battery will have overcharge\overheat protection built in. I charge mine every night with no problems whatsoever.

    once it reaches 100% it stops charging, so its fine to leave it on overnight, when it hits 90% it begins charging again.
