    Batteries are funny... Chances are, you will need a new one.

    If it's only 6 months old, it should still be under warranty through Samsung, just give them a call and see what they can do

    Oh, and welcome to CPF

    That's always your best option... everytime you overcharge, you kill it a bit more

    Usually, devices have charging sensors implemented on the hardware or software to keep it from happening though

    Lithium ion batteries love to be topped up. I have one that's four years old that still works well because it got charged in a car kit twice a day.

    I have always had good luck with Cellphoneshop.com. I have gotten batteries, chargers, and cases from them that have all worked fine. Not too expensive.
