    I just bought a used 700p. I did a hard reset and started setting it up. I noticed that the default battery warning levels that came up are .01 and .02 volts. I'm sure that it'll never run on voltage that low and LiIon doesn't like going below three volts or so. What are good values to use?

    I can't find that option.?

    I want to run the Treo without battery, but it always say "Will shutdown in 30 seconds" if I do that (run with charger only)

    I figured it out. It's a leftover preference add-on from my Visor which, apparently, doesn't work so well on the Treo. I suppose I can assume the Treo handles low battery warnings appropriately and will delete this one.

    They always seem to have the weird warning levels. It doesn't pay any attention to them, and will alert at something like 3.68 or so volts, which is fine.

    kocoman: I don't think you can run the treo without a battery. The phone's power supply depends on using the battery to help with voltage regulation, and without it it probably can't regulate well enough to keep everything working. The wall wart power supplies are all over the place with respect to voltage and ripple.
