Is it safe to stick my battery in the fridge?
Why would you?
I read some where that Li-Ion batteries love the cold.
I put mine in the freezer when it gets too hot. Hasn't hurt anything afaik
it should be fine as long as when you take it out of the freezer or fridge you let it get back to room temperature because of condensation and stuff. aand yes i stick mine in the fridge too!
As a side note, if your battery isn't lasting as long, new Ally batteries are about $5 on amazon.com. I just replaced mine about a week ago. My phone went from barely lasting through an 8hr shift at work to lasting a little over 48 hrs with light use.
Also, calibrating it helps as well. Especially if you haven't since last flashing a rom.
Bought my new battery off of amazon for 3 bucks
How do you calibrate?
i've heard of people freezing their batteries for long term storage. I don't know what would motivate you to stick in there out of the blue... but to each his own.
The long-term storage thing is just a myth. batteries are not food, storing in a cool place is not going to improve battery life.
Sometimes my phone overheats while charging, so I remove the battery and let it cool in the freezer so I can go back to charging it
Simple way to improve overheating while charging. Turn the phone battery side up and remove the back cover. You wouldn't think this makes much of a difference, but it does.
