Having a cleaner running os, aka. less possibly leaky apps, may do as much for the battery life as the battery draining and resetting the calibration circuitry.

    I'm not doubting that the circuitry might need a stern talking to but I would also say a good ol fashioned reset doesn't hurt either.

    That all said, I'm draining my battery tonight and giving it a good full charge.
    I was worried about the same thing. So I tried making sure i opened everything and used everything last night, just to see. Today it's just as good.

    It still might be something getting 'stuck' on and fixed with the reset, but I can't figure out what it is since i'm ok now. Maybe something in the setup?

    I can't disregard the more than doubling of battery life time after the full discharge.

    don't like to bump my own threads.. but there is still alot of people discovering how to make their battery better... so... bump

    this thread is a little more detailed in WHY you let battery die/almost die.. then charge it for 10 hours overnight. It's to re-calibrate the battery meter INSIDE the phone.. It has more to do with the phones circuitry then it does with the battery

    if i'm at home working all the time, is it best to just let it connect to charger 24/7 or should I take it off when it gets to 100%??? When is it time to ''top off''???

    Only if the hole is larger than 1/4" - if smaller then 1/4" no problems and you will be blessed with the odor from the innards of the refrigerator.

    i know this is an old thread..but i just saw this on the iphone site.

    Use iPhone Regularly
    For proper maintenance of a lithium-based battery, itís important to keep the electrons in it moving occasionally. Be sure to go through at least one charge cycle per month (charging the battery to 100% and then completely running it down).

    Other places to charge your new Pre (from most desirable to least):

    • Freezer
    • Microwave (not running)
    • Oven
    • Microwave (running)
    • Dishwasher
    • Blendtec TotalBlender (running, of course)
    I took your advice and tried the last one on the list, my problem is that my phone now wont take a charge. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
    I was a proud supporter of Palm, HP
    WebOS running on the Palm Pre, Pixi, and now the TouchPad.
