    Hi, this may sound like a stupid question, but would leaving my Note 10.1 on charge all day damage the battery? I work all day and only ever use my tablet in the evening. I leave it on charge when not in use but wasn't sure if this is harmful? Would really appreciate some advice......Cheers guys

    When you're done with it for the night, turn it off, put it on charger, unplug it when you leave for work. Come home turn it on......repeat. :D

    Nope....wasn't a dumb question. The answer just wasn't immediately obvious to you. :D
    With the tablet turned off while you're at work, when you get home and power it on you would still be at 100% so no need to leave it plugged in.
    From off to power up only takes a few seconds.

    There is no such thing as a dumb question. Dumb answers is a different thing.
    I don't know if this is true with the Note's battery but some folk swear by the idea of using their tablet, laptop etc until the battery is down to 25% before charging it back up to 100% and then, once a week, use the device until the battery is virtually dead and then charge it back up to 100%. It had something to do with the battery's memory and getting the longest use out of the battery. But maybe that only worked with older type batteries and this counts as one of the dumb answers that I mentioned earlier, lol
    Cheers,

    Not necessary to use the Note this way.

    I thought we could get more than 1 days use out if the note on a single charge???? Doesn't seem to be working for me yet but I'm punishing it pretty hard

    Depends also on how you have your phone configured; brightness, syncing intervals...etc etc. What is your setup?

    10 hours of continuous use is much more than a day. But if you were expecting it to last 24hrs on a charge, then you will be disappointed
