Thread: Battery Life Problems: Charging on the Comp

    Default Battery Life Problems: Charging on the Comp
    I have a G1 iPhone running on 1.1.4 and a couple of days ago I was DL programs and themes like crazy while attached to my laptop for a couple of hours. Now today my battery life has started draining like crazy! Is my iPhone getting used to getting charged often or is it the laptop charging while DL apps? Any help would do, thank you.

    Laptops are notorius for supply less power through their USB ports, even when plugged in. Charging often shouldn't be an issue with lithium ions anymore. It's actually preferred to have it drain to about 40-50% before charging. Do not fully discharge. This may work once as a calibration, but again that doesn't seem to be an issue with newer batteries and it only strains the battery, leading to a lower life if done regularly.
