    When I go to bed at night, I set my phone to airplane mode (if I set an alarm), or just turn it off. It really stops the overnight battery drain.

    It's great, I only lost like 2 or 3% off my battery last night! Normally, I wake up at about 80% battery or less...

    I've been doin the same as well as charging overnight with the Computer instead of the wall charger & for me that seems to last longer throughout the day...

    By the time I get in the bed, the phone it about to die; by the time I go to sleep, the phone is charged ;)


    thatz my reasoning...

    Charging the phone over night ruins the shelf life of the battery via overheating it. If the battery had a shelf life of 1.5 - 2 years, charging over night every night will bring that down to 0.5 - 1 year.

    just about every modern electronic device detects when the phone is fully charged and stops charging to prevent overcharging.

    Whoa!...hold up...I haven't seen a warning about overcharging batteries since the 80's bag phones! Is there any merit to this claim?

    Sound off, please

    The sales manager at the Sprint store where I picked up my Epic told me that he used to work as a tech. He said that in 90% of the cases where people brought in their phone with battery issues it was because they charged overnight.

    i happens man, ive gone through a couple phone batteries in the past because i left them charging overnight. ive had phone tech guys tell me it affects them. ive thrown away bloated battery cells that couldnt hold a charge, maybe on a year old phone. my friends phone is currently doing that

    i really dont see how this applies considering the phone stops charging once it reaches 100%...

    then why does the phone tell you when it reaches 100% to unplug it

    so you know your phone is at 100% and it no longer needs to be charged?................

    or it could be to let the battery cool down because it gets hot while its plugged in and could shorten its life

    maybe yours does, my epic and evo do the same thing, they both stop charging at 100% and will not re-charge until re-plugged.

    Yeah, I didn't think this was a problem anymore, but I'll admit, I was a little concerned when I first saw the message on my Epic to unplug since the battery was charged 100%...

    Not true, Herotech.

    That has not been an issue since Ni-Cad, and even most of the later of those have full charge detection built into their parent device or desktop charger.

    Battery over heating can happen in three ways now: a defective battery or charger, or leaving the battery exposed to direct sunlight or other heat source.

    100% false with LiIon and the technique used by the phone
