I’m always torn between charging the battery early (around 30% remaining) or waiting until the battery warning pops up (10%) or later, or what would be better for the life of the battery?
I’m also going on the assumption that an all-night trickle-charge is preferable to the minimum 3-4hr charge it takes for the orange light to turn green.
There are several discussions on the same topic already 😉 You cannot select the type of charge – you plug it in, it charges. As to when, again, lots of debate on that. My feeling? When you can works for me… 😉
Haha… fair enough.
I’m assuming 3rd party batteries will become available in time (eBay perhaps?) so I’m trying not to worry about it too much…
Thanks for the reply Hufn.
There are already a bunch of batteries available. There is the oem 6 cell (well probably not samsung manufactured, but same essentially I imagine) as well as a 9 cell battery. That looks very nice although I don’t know the size/weight. There might also be the improved battery for the upcoming model – it’s a 6 cell but better capacity (or something along those lines as it is saying longer life).
Just remember not to buy a battery too early as it’s life starts ticking as soon as it’s manufactured…I just charge it overnight. Don’t see why not.
fwiw, I have given up on after-market batteries, after horrible experiences with eBay cell phone, and camera “batteries.”
