    Hi
    what is best for the battery?

    I have a touchstone at home and one at work and so far I just put my touchpad on them while not in use.
    At work, it may sit there for several hours regardless of whether it needs charging or not.

    My question is, will it degrade the performance of the battery, this constantly charging mode?

    Should I wait until it is like 10% of charge left to recharge it?

    I'd like to know what is the best strategy for charging the battery to extend its useful life.

    Thanks

    Fore lithium ion batteries it is best to keep them topped up, i.e. constantly charging is the best. The life of a Lithium Ion battery is limited to the number of charge cycles. Thus the less times the battery runs down and then is fully charged, the longer it will last.
