Mine's normally in the charger for a short while every day when I hotsync. It usually is no more than a half hour or so. I never charge over the weekend. If my battery ever gets below 40% then I pop it on the charger overnight. When I'm on the road, my T3 is also my alarm clock so it always stays on the charger all night. This is generally a good thing too because a days worth of heavy use usually leaves the battery below 30%. What exactly is wrong with yours WolfRX? I had a protection circuit failure on mine in August 2004 that manifested itself as the battery being unable to hold a charge. Every time I would pop it on the charger, I'd get the initial palm/digitizer startup screen. When in my hand, the thing would be dead. This started intermittantly (my PDA would suddenly be dead when I pulled it out). Swapping the protection circuit with my original battery fixed it and I haven't had a re-occurrence since.
