battery usage

You can start charging the phone, then turn it off (it continues charging) to reduce heat; using your phone while it charges will generate excess heat and put a parasitic load onto the battery. PINE64 sell a battery charger for $5 which will also eliminate heat - buy a spare battery and hot swap them.
Hi Jed, thanks for your reply!  I will try not to use the phone while charging, although, I don't want to miss a call or text at that time.  I did try to get the battery charger and a spare battery a while back. I just checked again, the charger is available, but the spare battery is still "out of stock" Sad
