also as one poster advised not to have it connected to charger while it is in use.....
how about when tethering (drains 6% per hour) or downloading (drains 16% per hour), keep it connected or not.
thanks again.

Better for the lifespan of the battery if you do a recharge from 50%-20%. Keeping it in the charger when not in use will do constant micro-charges and eventually wear out the battery sooner. And regarding tethering - if the combination of tethering and charging heats the phone up, then I would again advice against it. Heat will also decay the battery and it will do it faster than charging cycles.

battery university has shown how partial charges are much better than full charges... it prolongs battery life (cycles), reduces heat build up and reduces stress

on your example, the device would spend more time on the charger to get it to a desired level... lets say 70-90%....which will be against the recomendations above
