    Do you let it go all the way down before charging or just charge it every night no matter how low or high the battery is?

    The latter is generally considered a better practice than the former.

    my 680 spends most of its life being charged.

    i have a charger at work and when ever im at the desk, it is being charged.

    I did two total-drain/reset/full-charge charges on my Crimson when I first got it to recalibrate (I hope so anyway...) my meter and season the battery...

    But, now I just plug it in to the charger at night at bedtime no matter how much charge is left so I have a fresh 99% or so at the start of every day. I usually have 55-60% charge left at the end of the day anyway now, and that is with moderate useage.

    I am unable to perform the following posted suggestions for increasing my Treo 680 battery life.

    When I go to phone > opitions, I do not see "Select Network".

    I also am unable to find "active polling" anywhere in my versamail (I use AOL wtih it).

    Can someone advise me how to find these?


    I also have question about the "Slim extended 1800hAh for Treo 680":
    I saw the following item posted on the Treo blog:

    By the time all the new Treo 680 power accessories arrive you should have four options to maximize battery life:

    1. Adjust the various available setting that influence battery life (see Treo 680 Battery Review)
    2. Get an original spare Palm 1200mAh battery or;
    3. An Extended 2400mAh Battery Pack (available within 10 days) or;
    4. A slim extended 1800hAh to fit the normal battery door (hopefully available within the next two months).

    DOES ANYONE KNOW THE STATUS OF OPTION #4--SLIM EXTENDED 1800hAh


    Thanks

    I too would really like to know the status of option #4. That would be great!

    How low do I let it? It's not within my control.At the end of the day, it's dead.

    The network preferences are located in Prefs > Network. As for selecting a network I'm not sure what you mean.

    Did you go to Sedio's website? They recently had an announcement about new batteries for the 680.

    Just kidding. Actually wish there were more real mommies around. Real daddies, too, for that matter.

    When they're available, my kids' daddies do pretty well... I can honestly say I LOVE my job, how many others can say that and really mean it?
