    Its been said the life of the battery is somewhat around 500 charges. But does that mean 500 full charges? I mean, I charge it whenever I'm able to. Does that count as a full charge? How about just syncing with iTunes for a minute? Will this kill off the battery even faster?

    A charge is from 0%-100% as far as batteries are concerned. So no, charging continuously doesn't count as a charge. It will still diminish the life, but at a much smaller pace. It is impossible to perfectly preserve the battery, but continuously charging will definitely not do more harm.

    So is the consistent charging a good or bad thing?

    It's a good thing.

    Don't even worry about it. If you break it under warranty youre covered. By break I mean mess up the batt.

    Correct me if I am wrong
