Can you damage a Kindle Fire by leaving it charging too long?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So it has a lithium ion battery, and I hear if you leave an iPod or iPhone (also lithium ion) charging once it's fully charged it will permanently damage the battery, making it lose power faster, or something.

IS this true? Cause that'd suck to have to be "oh look at the time, my tablet or phone is about done charging, better go unplug it so I don't hurt it!". It's nice to leave stuff charging over night.

The more you charge things, the shorter the mobile capacity. The more you leave a fully charged item plugged in, the more the capacity is reduced also.

As in general electronic products? Don't products these days short circuit the chargers when batteries are fully charged?

No, batteries today have mechanisms to automatically halt the charging. I leave my stuff plugged on the charger until I need it.

No you'll be fine, the kernel is set to automatically turn off the charging when it's full and recharge once it goes below its minimum threshold. Also it's actually better to do quick short charges for your phone/mobile device instead of doing long/dead battery charges.
