    Re: [Q] Myths: Car Chargers/ Overcharging

    by my personal experience
    an internal charging circuit pushes FULL current till about 70-80% of charge, then lower down the current
    once it hits 95%, the charger enters standby mode (trickle charging), to keep battery nearly full without overcharging
    but one thing is right, unplug the charger when charger enters standby to save power
    do this once every 1-2 months
    let the battery goes down to "low battery" warning, that can re-calibrate the battery

    Re: [Q] Myths: Car Chargers/ Overcharging

    i always charge my phone through the USB.
    when i compare it to charging my phone with a charger, it seems to me that the charger charges faster than the USB
    i usually just leave my phone charged to my computer and i never overcharge it because it charges slower.
    this does not effect the length of my battery life, so it would be ok to charge through a USB
    i would say use a charger if you are in a hurry and need battery life fast

    Re: [Q] Myths: Car Chargers/ Overcharging

    I noticed when I used car chargers my battery life seems to drain much quicker. I think the fast charge in general is bad for your phone. especially when they have more than one charge mode/speed on the adapter.
