    Will it harm battery life if I keep it constantly in the cradle, even if it doesn't need charging? then comes the issue: if i take it out and put in back in repeatedly, won't it mess up with the phone's battery life? Thx

    Li-ion batteries like being well charged. My 9000 lived in the charging cradle almost every day without any issue. Using the battery sometimes seems to be better than never using it (like with a laptop) but in general the consensus seems to be more charge is better. Never let one of these batteries run all the way down. That will lower the life expectancy for sure.

    Although Li-Ion batteries like to be well charged it is always a good practice to let then run low once a month then recharge it.

    This is not exactly correct. The recommend best practice is to let the battery deep discharge every 30 to 40 charging cycles. This has nothing to do with number of days but actual charges.

    What does deep discharge mean? Letting it run very low, and then charging it?

    deep discharge is to run it all the way down then fully uninterrupted charge it to 100%
