    Just wondering if anyone out there has ever had their Passport die on them or have to put it on the charger before their day ended?

    I'm in my 3rd week of owning my Passport and the battery has been great, getting me through about 15 hours of the day on a single charge. Everyone says the battery will improve over time, and to me, an improvement of the batter over the current performance will only be another bonus! But I am also wondering if we should ever let it completely die out and then give it another full charge??

    I'd like to hear year experiences.

    Thanks!

    I haven't managed to get my battery level below 50% yet! And I had my Passport since mid December.

    I've had my Passport for just over 4 months now and have yet needed to plug it in or run out of battery. You don't need to drain your battery completely anymore, can actually do more harm than good.

    The battery is lithium ion polymer! To maximize the ion stores in this type of battery it needs to ne charged while the battery has charge left over and thru time time will actually slow the ion particles and increase energy uptake!
    Never charge below 20%, always maintain a charge and never let it die or get below this!

    This is pretty much my time table. Some days the hours shift but it's usually off the charger for 13/14 hours a day with maybe 30-20% remaining.

    Thanks! I usually put it on a charger as soon as I can if/when I get the "below 20%" notification. Usually in the 30-20% range though.

    I've never even seen the battery LED flashing, something that I was very used to see after a day on the Q10.

    While I wholeheartedly agree with this, you do realize that the device itself will not let the battery drain completely? It actually cuts the device off with roughly 10%(measured with a multi meter) of the battery life left(to avoid draining it completely an killing the battery). Kind of like how the device doesn't allow it to overcharge causing the battery to explode(yes lithium type batteries will explode if overcharged. they actually catch fire when exposed to air. over charging cause the pack to bulged and split.) 20+ years in the R/C airplane hobby has taught me a lot about batteries.

    Hi homer1475! Thanks for sharing!

    When can you say that the Passport battery is being overcharged?
    Sometimes I forget to pull it off from the outlet even if it's 100% charged already. Should I make it sure to pull it fully charged within an hour? Or 2 hrs?

    Thanks!

    I watched battery life constantly with my Z10. After a couple months with Passport, i don't worry about it.

    Go all day..medium/heavy use. And i don't think I have ever seen it below 40% at the end of the day.

    I just charge at nite. I don't use the car charger anymore!

    I usually go 2 full days on a charge, and by the end of the second day it can get below 20%. I've had it as low as 6%, no bad consequences yet.

    I've managed to drain the battery a few times since I bought the device. On really heavy days of use I get about 15-17 hours of battery life, not sure about the exact screen-on time. The battery life is excellent though. I'm a very, very heavy user. My screen-on time regularly exceeds 4-5 hours per day.
