Droidx battery care

I would rather charge my Droidx at every opportunity, but [U]don’t want to “train” my battery to accept shallower and shallower charges[/U].

We have network connection, no problem…but without “juice”…a network connection is useless. I’ve had two batteries since purchasing my Droidx, and recently invested in another extended battery.

I try to power down all unnecessary features when we’re off-the-grid…but I’m still frustrated when that 15% warning pops up. Bah! I admit, I’m using my Droidx more and more as time passes. :thumbsup:

I can’t speak of the Droid specifically, but I think all batteries benefit from being completely depleted once in a while. When I’m not waiting for it to run out though I usually charge it when it’s down to about 10% or less except when I need to go somewhere then I’ll just top it off if I will be gone a longer time. As long as you don’t do that all the time I would think it would be okay. :shrug:

As far as training…I don’t think it trains a battery, but I think the battery becomes less effective over time. I’m not sure.
