Why You Shouldn't Charge Your Mobile Phone Overnight

You may already have heard the warnings: Don’t overcharge your mobile phone. Make sure you unplug it from the charger after it reaches 100%. Wait to charge your phone until it’s almost down to 0%. Don’t leave it charging overnight. Or else. (MORE)

Good to know.  I usually leave mine on the charger overnight.  I won't do that anymore.

Same here. I started last night after reading that article. I naively believed that you couldn't overcharge a battery.

I remember the rechargeable batteries we used in the old days had to be completely depleted before charging because they had a "memory".  If you kept topping off the battery from say 90%, the battery would run down from 100% to 90% and then die.
