Repeatedly charging the 3DS... a bad idea?

So like, everytime a I don't use the 3DS I leave it on the cradle to charge. Is that a bad idea? Will that reduce the battery life?

The manual says I should leave it on the cradle for on the go gaming incase I want maximum power at any time. But then it goes and says there's a 500 charge limit.

still confused heh

Is gonna make your battery life short with the time, even if you charge it every day, is gonna last you around 2 years, before it starts to hold less charge....

But if you leave it in the cradle for like 5 days without using it, is just one charge...

Don īt worry, the system was made to be on the cradle when not in use....

With this kind of battery it doesn't really damage it with frequent charging, though technically they do last longer if stored half charged for long periods of time. Don't worry about it too much as it will last years under normal conditions and you can buy a replacement battery for only $15.
