This question is directed mostly toward the Kindle Fire, but I think applies to most of the rechargeable devices we use. The Fire's battery life is eight hours, approximately, best case scenario.
If I'm sitting on my couch reading, playing a game or whatever, does it hurt to leave it plugged in while I do so? Because if the battery runs down and then I decide to leave the house, it won't be fully charged, where if I leave it plugged in while I sit there, and then leave and take it with me, it goes with a full charge.
I remember years ago hearing that you needed to let your devices run down or nearly run down before recharging batteries. I'm really unclear about the procedure for keeping the newer batteries charged.
If one of our resident techies could clear up the proper ways to protect my rechargeable batteries, while being able to start with a full for use when away from a power supply, I would appreciate it.
