I have been charging it up about once a day,
even if it's only about half way used up in
the little graphic.

Is it better for the battery to let it run down
to empty before charging?

I guess I charge it each day so I don't run
out if I happen to be away from charger.

Advice?

Charging Battery

I used to charge it connected to my computer, but I found it lasts a lot longer if you charge it in the electrical wall socket. I just leave it on over night.

I try to keep it on the charger throughout the day because I tend to use it at full brightness to be able to see it under the fluorescent lighting at work, plus playing podcasts and/or music all day long...

The battery prefers more frequent, top-ups rather than letting it go all the way down before charging.

I'm doing a test right now. I just upgraded to 1.1.4 Wednesday. So far I have been able to go 2 days where as before the upgrade it was everyday.

So the wall charger does give it more power? I just charge mine in the dock, on my laptop.

I charge mine every night before I go to bed. I use it a lot so the battery is usually less than half by the time I go to bed.

I charge mine every night... But now since my computer Is broken, I plug in my phone while I'm surfing the web while I'm watching tv... Occasionally I have to charge my phone when I get home from school due to everyone checking their myspace!

I charge mine every night. It lays in bed next to me. I also take a car charger with me were ever I go. I'm on the iPhone pretty much every spare boring second I have.

My dock is in my room, and I charger it during the night, even though it could go for two days without charging.

I plug mine into the mains charger every night before I go to bed, and whenever I'm in my room at my computer, I plug it into my dock, which js connected to my iMac.

Read somewhere (I know, I know.. everyone has an opinion on charging) that with the BB you don't want to charge over night so I often charge my iPhone when I get home or while gaming for a few hours a night.

If I don't charge it and don't Twitter all day I can probably go a couple of days just fine.

I use two iPhones everyday. One gets recharged every two days, the other every three days. They get used on average about 6-7 hours each, mostly music and a few calls, email and some internet.
