    Is it possible to charge your spare batter by acing it directly on the touchstone?

    you can try lol, just put it on there for 20 min after checking the actuall charge on it then check it after and see if it went up.

    I will give it a try when I run one of my batteries down to empty.

    your not supposed to run then all the way down until after about three weeks of use keeping the battery as full as possible. its not good for the battery to be drained all the way down is what palm says . its a different type of battery from the older treo batteries

    it wouldn't do any good. The magnetic backplate that comes with the touchstone sends the current to the battery. It'd be like touching a spare battery to any dc charger, it doesn't charge at all.

    This was something I wondered about, but didn't think would work.

    no it won't work, there is a induction coil in the back cover.

    Sorry guys for the poor spelling. Was on my pre and I am still getting used to the keyboard plus the fact that you cant see the entire field while typing (used to my Touch Pro 2...).

    Were do you get this information. Why is stuff like this not on the main part of the manual? You would think this would be pretty important especially since the biggest complaint I have is battery life and I need to get the most out of it. Does this wreck the battery or something?

    Exactly where do you claim they say this? Citation or it's BUNK.

    Lithium-ion batteries shouldn't be run down completely, it degrades performance. They work better if they're continuously topped off.

    It generally is recommended every now and then to discharge all the way (well... almost all the way*) to recalibrate the battery meter, but shouldn't be done too often.

    *Actually, if it discharges too much, you won't be able to recharge it again at all, but the electronics in the batteries and devices prevent that from happening except under extreme circumstances.

    I know a lot about phone technology but nothing about batteries lol. I am so concerned with my pre going dead that I leave it on the touchstone charger all the time so when I leave its full. All along I thought this was bad, your saying that this is not true? I normally let it go all the way dead and then all the way full, i thought this was best practice. Guess I was way off lol

    For lithium-ion batteries, which are in almost all phones these days, it's best to top them off continuously.

    Now, for Nickel metal hydride (NiMH) and Nickel Cadmium (NiCd) batteries, you're correct, it's best to do a full discharge followed by a full recharge with every use.

    Yeah, I thought the opposite too, hahaha. Thought it was best to drain it all the way down and then charge it up again, guess not.

    5th grade science class

    just sayin .......

    Actually I can understand how someone who isn't a material's science or EE person might think that the battery is more complex that it really is . Again, just sayin .....
