    I got mine for xmas and have charged of every day, but one since. I do quite a lot ok it, constantly on and off the net, downloading apps, playing games etc. The only thing I haven't done consistantly is listen to music lol.


    I don't think it's doing the battery any good either

    You cant "overdo" it, I read somewhere it charges until it gets to 100% then it stops charging but still shows the battery.

    I knew it did that. What I meant was the fact that I charge it all the time may eventually knacker the battery out. That's what happened to my iPod mini years ago. Everytime I docked it onto by speakers, it's charge and in the end, the battery wouldn't even last a few hours.

    Well if your worried about the battery, like any other device you would want to run down the battery before charging, that should extend battery life.
