    Hi

    I have the HBH-35 handset. I was told to only charge it when the light
    flashes red. The light on mine started flashing red after about 3 weeks.
    Would it hurt it to charge it more often like once a week?

    Thanks

    HBH-35 has NiMH cells. Common wisdom has it that earlier charging
    does not harm them, as long as you run a complete decharge/charge
    cycle once in a while. I however, prefer to charge only when it's
    empty.

    The battery indicator, however, is completely useless: It shows
    "full" for 5 minutes, "low" 2 minutes before starting to blink
    red, while "medium" is what it indicates the remaining 99.99
    percent of the time.

    HBH-35 is a headset, not a handset - if we are talking about the
    same gadget.

    No, it does not hurt at all.
    What does hurt the batteries is having the HBH-35 deep discharged for a long
    time, so fully empty for several weeks.
    Avoid that and you will enjoy your headset for several years.

    Mine was dead after ap. 2 years. I used it a lot.
    After that I bought a HBH-660 and now I am really happy with it but I
    hope it will survive longer.
