    Yes. At least once a month you should let the battery completely die. .......I think. :D

    Just let the batteries exhaust themselves while on a trek to Subway or something. :D

    If you trust Apple's design specifications and knowledge of their own technology and follow their guidelines. Sure. Otherwise, no.

    well the thing is, i have been told its bad for your battery, good for it, it calibrates your screen, etc and i just am never sure.

    apple also says NOT to jailbreak, but i do that anyways. not on this device though.

    Letting them get to 0% and stay that way for any length of time is bad for them. iOS devices tend to shutoff somewhere between 5% and 10% remaining power (depending on device/iOS version), so I would say it's safe to let it get that low, but you should recharge it right away.

    Rather good advice.
