on vacation -- unplugged!

We are going on vacation and not taking the BB, but I do need to take the charger for something else.  Is it OK to leave the BB for 3 weeks without it being charged?  I don't want to lose any data.

Re: on vacation -- unplugged!

Hello,

 

Typically, BB batteries do not like to be fully depleted. I suggest that, when you leave, you remove the battery from your BB and leave it that way while you are gone. When you return, insert the battery and be sure to fully charge. You will lose no data.

 

Congratulations on unplugging! Many cannot do the same.

 

Good luck!
