    It already seams to me charging will be different cause I don't have to do it every night. How do some of you that came from a z10 handle your charging. Do u just plug it in every night with 40% left?

    I just put it on the charger overnight with about 50% left. Probably unnecessary but I'm worried that something I'll do the next day will require more than 50%...but it'll be interesting to see what others say

    I plug it in before I sleep, so off the charger in the morning around 7am, on the charger at night around midnight. On a busy day it usually gets down to about 30% by midnight.

    I have had the phone since launch day in Canada, and I have not noticed any negative impacts on the battery thus far.

    I always plug mine in before going to bed,.. with anywhere between 40-10% left (closer to 10 the past weeks with all the world cup streaming).

    I think they had a blog post awhile back about when to charge battery. If I remember correctly, I think the conclusion was to plug in when you can.

    Is it just me who is completely battery OCD? I can be heading down the pub and unlike normal people who just want enough battery to last the evening, I have to have it 90% or so, even though it's waaaay more than is necessary.

    It's a dreadful affliction I can assure you.

    Occasionally mine will decide to burn through the battery a a great rate for some unknown reason so I do like to stay pretty charged all the time

    I was told a reboot can fix that some times. By brother has a z10 says if he notices his batter draining he reboots and it helps.

    I charge only when my phone's battery is below 10%. I have that wicked kind of paranoia that it's not healthy to overcharge the battery. Then again, it's MY paranoia, not everyone else's. ))))))))))))))))) And after reading this thread I feel rather lonely.... )))

    I charge my Z30 when it gets under 20%. Normally this is every three or four days. When this point in time has come I decide whether I can wait until I get home (this means it can then have 15 or even 12% or so) or I charge it right now because the day will still be long.

    Charging my device lasts about four hours. I think it's not a good idea to charge it longer. So I never charge it over night.

    I charge mine whenever I'm near a charger. I have a wall charger at work so it sits on charger most of the day streaming music.

    I charge every night!

    I charge mine overnight as well.
    I remember reading an article or a blog or something that basically said with the kinds of batteries that are in our phone now, it'll take about 4-6 years for them to start really not holding a charge very well. If I recall correctly, it actually said if you are worried about it, the best is to keep your phone between 40-80%, that is healthiest for the battery.
    All I have to say to that is who cares? I'm sure very few people (especially us blackberry fans) won't have a phone for 4-6 years. Something better comes out every year and lots can't resist!

    I'm with you. My phone is plugged in almost all of the time. Unplug it when I wake up, plug it in in the bathroom when I shower, plug it in at work as long as I'm at my desk...

    It always amazed me all the people at work that show up with their phone dead. And it's always the same ones.
