I usually let it die, then charge it.
I love my phone but don't like talking on it, so it can stay dead for days on end with me.
Tiff, on the other hand... LOL

With my cellphone, I usually charge it when it seems to be low on the screen of the phone (I don't wait till it says low battery. I just changed the battery and with the old one I was accustomed that when it said it was low it also died coevally. It wasn't fun eg to stay somewhere among nothing waiting for a ride, trying to call with that died battery where am I or have an important call when the battery suddenly died. I think the new battery holds power better but this old one... well... made me careful).

With my laptop I usually run it with mains battery included. If I sometimes use the battery, I let it charge when I next time run with mains or then straight after I've used the battery. So the battery of my laptop is usually charged up.

I've heard you should let you battery die occasionally before charging up.

Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

With my phone ( the LG enV2 ) I charge it every night I am home. I usually spend the night at my boyfriends a few nights a week, so it doesnt get charged then. But if I am doing something for the whole day, or not going to be home for any period of time, I will charge it, because I have a huge fear of being stuck somewhere and not having my phone to call someone!!

I dont know about yours, or how much you use it, but I can go a few weeks at a time and not have it die on me... and I use it a lot for texting but also for calls.

With the older phones the batteries were set up in such a way that they have memory build in. That means that back in the day before the smart phones came out, you had to let your phone battery die the first 2-3 times allow the battery memory to max itself out.

The new batteries are ion ones which means you're actually wrecking your battery by letting it run it's max and letting it die.

I have found, especially with the new iPhone 3G S that the battery life is actually quite bad. The program runs incredibly smoothly without any problems but the cost of that is that it sucks the life out of the phone. I always have a cord with me to charge usually at least once thru the day(but I'm also a very heavy cell phone user).

Allie, it might just be the new generation of the crapberry. Those new smart phones seem to be able to much now, that it just kills the batteries.

Pretty much! I really like my Chocolate. It's only had 2 issues (the battery thing and 3 months after I got it it started turning off when someone would call me, they gave me a new phone that time) in the 2 years I've had it which I'm very happy with.
I'm most definitely going to get another LG in November when i get a new phone.
