I normally forget to at least once a month, maybe two times a month but other then that, I don't and I only have a phone and a bluetooth to charge so I don't have to worry about getting to charge something too much.

Funny I thought all these devices had power indicators for us to watch....kind of like your fuel gauge in the car. That being said has my phone and other devices ever run out...of course but not very often. I guess I would be more the charging freak than always running out guy.

It would be really really cool to have one of those chinese android smartphones with dual sim, TV, android device, GPS, 3G, MicroSD storage, Video and still camera, FM/AM Radio, MP3 player, HD Movie players, with tons of applications, such as Office, readers, browsers, games, etc etc.

After all those features I can't think in any other device to charge.

Before the time I used to work for a company and I needed to take the bus and go to the office, yeah it was an issue, I even had another charger at the office for those days I forgot.

But since I am working as a freelancer at home: Man, I never go out, they even should make a special smartphone with ac adapter, Battery free.... Or perhaps I just need to forget about cellphones just landlines.

I need to follow the white rabbit.

I am charging my phones once a day. Sometimes more often when I'm on the road and have lots of incoming e-mails. I have a 1.5 x 1 meter solar cell on the roof of my car (Toyota FJ70) rated at 225W/p which is charging a battery (1850Ah 2x6V) that I am using to keep all my stuff ready to go at all times. However I do forget to charge the batteries in almost all of my flashlights, that's why I have tons batteries in the kitchen just in case. Oh and I always forget to charge my electric razor but thankfully I do have a spare cable in my emergency kit in the car.

I charge the mobile phone almost everyday when I sleep, because it is Li-ion so you don't need to worry about memory effect.
Portable gaming device such as Sony PSP and Nintendo DS too.

other stuff such as digital camera, Xbox360 controller, flashlight or anything that use AA battery, I use LSD(Low self-discharge) NiMH battery so no worry about self-discharge when I not use it for long time, I also has some spares for emergency anyway.

Whenever I sync my iPod I just leave it in, I put my smartphone to charge beside my bed every 3 or so nights, and I just leave my laptop on its charger over the weekends (I charge it at school during the week).

I only use my phone and I always forget to charge the thing. When I need it most, it's almost dead. :p

FUN FACT, leaving chargers plugged in still takes in electricity when you aren't using them. Having a charging station like, a bunch of them plugged into one power strip and switch it off when you're not using it really helps.

I avoid cordless stuff because I hate battery hell, but some devices I have of course. Like cellphone, wii-motes and mp3-player. Worst is running out of juice on the cellphone and that happens :(. The cellphone uses it's own adapter for recharging, but everything else uses standard AA or AAA batteries. So I have a lot of rechargable batteries laying around. Unfortunatly batteries discharge over time even if you don't use them.

Get a charger that works in your car then you will never run out of power.

If my mobile phone starts to peep then i'll charge the phone. But sometimes it's hard if it start peeping at night and in the morning when you try to make a phone call you discover that the battery is dead. That's somewhat annoying.

I charge my cell phone and the mouse and headset at my office, but I can't say the same for my Harmony remote (I'm the only one in the house that uses it as the rest like the remote - not sure why). And sometimes I remember to charge myself.

I've only got one device that needs to be charged, an MP4 player.
BTW Rod no offense, but haven't the polls recently been a bit boring?
