    I've been finding mixed answers. Can you overcharge a cellphone? I just got an LG Shine with a 900 mAh LiIon battery. I usually let it charge overnight. Is this doing damage?

    No it doesn't cause damage

    I wouldn't leave it plugged in 24/7, but it's completely fine. I think it just stops charging once the battery is full, at least my phone does :dunno: But I've done that with every cell phone I've had with no problems.
