How Often Should I Charge My Gadget's Battery to Prolong Its Lifespan?
But most phones now don't use lithium ion, but lithium polymer, which I've heard prefers to be fully charged. How about some relevant info? You sure? Just checked mine, it's lithium ion. And it's an HTC Thunderbolt, fairly recent phone. There's a lot of confusion over terms with lithium batteries. All modern batteries use a solid polymeric electrolyte for shuttling the charge around, but they are still "lithium ion" batteries. As for complete charging, in most devices it doesn't matter quite so much due to the charging circuitry being fairly smart. RS, I'm not sure why you aren't a starred commenter.
