charging bbz10 overnight

Is it safe to charge the phone overnight everyday? My phone drains after about 8-9 hours of use. I can't unplug it in the middle of the night. That's why i leave it plugged overnight everyday. I'm still looking for stores that sell the battery bundle. It seems BlackBerry z10 is new in our place. Accessories such as battery bundle is not yet available here.

Re: charging bbz10 overnight

Yes it’s safe to leave it charging overnight each day. The phone is designed to prevent overcharging. When it reaches 100% it stops charging until it drops a few percent then starts charging again.

 

However there is the opinion that this continuous cycle of micro-charges each night can have an impact on the battery life over time.

 

You can use Charger Alert to let you know when the battery is fully charged and then unplug it, if you don’t want it charging all night.
