Leave Nexus 7 always plugged, Good or Bad?
« on: November 08, 2012, 11:30:35 AM »
Call it force of habit from using Android devices since 2009, but in the past I always left my device plugged in to the charger while using them (gaming, reading, etc.). Let's face it, Androids are power hungry.

Is it a good idea to continue with that practice with the Nexus 7?

I wouldn't advice doing it with any Android device, you'll damage the battery for sure and likely cause so serious heat when the CPU is under load.

I certainly don't think you'll need to do it with the Nexus 7.

I am guilty of this at night sometimes. I plug it in and it is fully charged by the time I use it. I then forget to pull the plug as I am playing around.
