Recharging
« on: February 28, 2013, 04:46:05 PM »
Hi there . This may be a very basic question but...

I use my nexus to pay video on the train for 3 hrs a day. So use abotu 25% battery charge. I am in the habit of leaving plugged into the computer to recharge overnight. Is that good practice or shoudl I run the battery down more each time. Does leaving it charging overnight harm it

Many thanks

paul

There's so much different contradicting information any more on lithium ion batteries I'm not sure.

From my understanding you should recharge it once it hits 50% capacity to prolong the life of the battery. Some people say it doesn't matter.

Also it shouldn't matter if you leave it plugged in all night. The batteries actually have chips in them that prevent any over charge damage or anything like that.

I agree with Sarge. Seems like YMMV upon usage and habits. I have seen so many different opinions, my head spins.

When you reach the point that you have degraded your battery by charging, the Nexus 7 X-3 will probably be available.

Good point. I try and just let go when it comes to the battery with the Nexus. It has the best life of anything I have owned.
