    I have a Nokia 6230. My battery does not run out every day but I just
    plug it in to top-up until the battery is full. Is this a bad thing
    to do ? Should I wait until the battery in almost run out before
    topping up ?

    Thanks.

    Wait till it says battery low a couple times, then charge. Small top ups
    everyday when the battery is not even close to flat ruins the battery faster
    than you would ever imagine!! :-)

    That's what I always thought, but according to postings I've read
    recently, if you have a Li-ion battery it is better not to run it down.
    By running a Li-ion battery down only (say) 50 percent you will
    have to recharge more often (of course), but the battery will last
    for many more charges such that the total life will be increased.
    So they say anyway. Do some Google Groups searches.

    Agreed that each time you charge the phone, it will shorten the
    lifespan. But what is the factor that causes the shortening of the
    lifespan ?

    Is it due to the number of times of charging or the duration ? If I
    were to charge every 2 days at for 1 hour each time, is the damage the
    same as charging everyday for half an hour each time ?

    Thanks.

    I guess it would be the number of times u charge. Charging the phone longer
    simply top-ups the battery nicely.
