    I've been keeping my hero topped off most days (plugged in at work, in the car). it seems to work fine when unplugged for a while, but rarely do I get below 40%.

    Today was different. By lunch I was down to 42%. Then within about 30 minutes I was down to 15% and falling fast.

    Do I need to cycle my battery from time to time? Is there a memory effect with these types of batteries?

    Thanks for guidance. Sean

    Sounds more like a wayward app. When I've had unusual battery loss I usually find and app running in the background that didn't shut down properly. Last time it was Pandora, Nothing in the notification bar, but it was chugging along for many hours without me knowing.

    Yeah, I've been battling this problem lately (see the ULTIMATE BATTERY THREAD). It's very odd and frustrating. I'd been having great battery life without using a task killer at all, but I might try to use one to see what is running to try and figure out what the problem app is. I have uninstalled many of my apps, so I'm starting to narrow it down.

    Use Spare Parts to find the culprit.
