    My battery life on my z30 is great, however i am wondering if i am doing it harm by not ever discharging it? I get up at 4am and use it all day and put it back on the charger about 10pm with roughly 50% left on the battery. Do I need to be running it down or is "battery memory" a thing of the past?

    I do the same thing and have never had a problem, but i would think its always good to run it down once a month .

    "Battery Memory" is a NiCd or NiMH aka "NiCad" battery issues and is not a problem with the lithium-ion battery used in the phone.
    However, there has been one paper published that reports a "memory like" effect in a lithium-ion battery.
    The report shows it to be very minute and possibly would only effect the way the battery charge percentage would be reported/detected. That percentage change, however, would most likely not make any noticeable change (as in a difference of tens of thousandths of a percentage point: State of Charge reports at 99.99999% as compared to memory 99.99998%)

    I think of my Z's battery like the beer fridge - never let it run out.
