    How do you take care of your Battery?

    Hello all I am wondering how you take care of your battery.
    I personally drain mine down to about 5% if can. (Life gets in the way sometimes) I only charge until I hit 100% and I do a full drain every Sunday or Monday. I belive this is the best for my battery. Granted this method I picked up from cordless power tools.
    So is this the best method for my smart phone battery?
    What do you do?

    Don't really worry about this I have phones that or four years old with the same original battery in it. I just try not to leave them on the charger longer than necessary

    Lithium Batteries do not have a memory. Do not totally drain. 20% is fine .Sometimes on a lithium battery it will be hard to kickstart a charge on a total drained battery.What DD said. Try not to leave on the charger to long. My $800.00 BionX Bicycle Battery Has the the same Instructions. So that is what I go by on a Lithium Battery.

    I've read that every 2-3 months you should use it down to 10 percent and then power it off and charge to 100 percent.

    I just charge it overnight connected to my pc through the usb......slower charge, heard it was better for the battery.
    Other than that, I do nothing special.

    You can take a very old battery an a new one and spin them. Older batteries that fail tend to spinn on a flat table more times than a new one because they have swollen in the center.

    Done it. Works.

    So charging over night is a bad thing then? Best to charge before bed then top it off in the morning?
