be warned that overcharging your battery can damage it permanently; severely overcharging it can make it explode!

Ok, but then, what do you recomend for fully charging the battery?
Thanks in advance.

Boot, plug the external power supply and don't care. Internal charging electronics should be smart enough to prevent explosion. Orange LED is just an indicator, that charging IC is still active.

Note: Reading the charger IC datasheet, I considered not being exact while describing charge cycle: When the battery is deeply discharged (below 2.8V), slow charging (pre-charge) is used as well. When the battery reaches 2.8V, fast charge is enabled, when full charge is detected, it goes back to slow charging (termination current). CPU may externally terminate charge cycle.

See the datasheet on my Zaurus web pages.

Ok, i'll take a read to it, thanks.
i really wanna know the best charging method to daily charging because i'm planing to buy 2 or 3 batteries and wanna long their life (sorry for my english)
