    Hi All,

    Here`s one for you, at what stage do you decide to recharge the battery?
    I know from other phones, MP3 Players etc, that some people say to let
    the Charge go completely so they wait until it dies before charging while
    others go for say 60, 40 per cent or so.
    Is there a set standard that the Manufacturers recommend and what are
    your own personal likings please?

    Peace,
    Andrew.

    Because it uses a Lithium-ion battery, which has a high energy to weight, and a lack of memory unlike earlier types of batteries, it does not matter when you charge it.

    The reccomended storage % is 40%, but when you recharge, Lithium Ion batteries prefer partial discharges, so full drain and recharge is not ideal (Except once a month). I usually charge at around 20-50%
