So I going to buy the Dinc any day now. So I've been doing a lot of research. One of my biggest concerns was battery life. So I emailed HTC support asking them about the whole bump charging and battery drain while the phone in on the charger. Here is the meat of the conversation. Enjoy! ME: (about the third time I explained the problem) "... If you place the phone on the charger overnight, the phone will charge to 100% and stop charging. From this point on it will continue to run on battery power discharging the battery. The phone will not restart the charging cycle until it is removed from the charger. This means that when removed from the charger it will not be 100% charged. Is this correct? Is this how the phone is designed, or is this a known issue?" HTC rep: "Thank you for your response. You could try to improve the battery life of your device to see if this will fix your issue. 1. Connect the phone to the charger and charge the device until the LED turned green with the phone powered ON. 2. Disconnect the phone, and power it off. 3. Reconnect the phone to the charger, and charged the device until the LED turns green again. 4. Disconnect the phone, power it on, and then power it off. 5. Reconnect the phone to the charger and charge until the LED turns green again. 6. Power on and use. I personally have never heard of this issue before. I have checked with my supervisors and this is not a known issue at this time. Since this is not a known issue, we can give suggestions and troubleshooting options to see what works and what does not." Sounds like the Bump Charging method to me. Am i the only one who thinks the phone should run off of A/C power when plugged in? This just doesn't sound right.
