Recharging phone

Mayor / Maire

Do you charge your phone to 100% or do you use any 'battery saving app' where you can limit charge to 80%,90%, etc %?

Even my laptop has BIOS option do I want 'battery saver' - 80% charge or 'longer work' - 100% charging.

Should I bother with those 'battery saving apps' at all since they use some battery juice while running in the background.


I usually charge @ 30-96%. the most important thing to do is to recalibrate the battery at least once or twice per year. especially if you notice the battery draining quickly. ie. 100%-90% in 5 min or if the device just randomly shuts off when theres still battery remaining.

Technically yes. Lithium is limited by the number of charge cycles. The more often you charge the phone the more often you deplete the chemistry in the battery.  I Charge to 100% via slow wireless.  I also dont charge my phone every day or before bed. Try charging when you need to.  Run it down to 30 or 40 percent, it may 1.5 or 2 days. Meaning when I go to bed and my phone is at 61% I leave it until Lunch time to see if I need to charge it up. Fast charging will also deplete the chemistry faster. 


I could but still want calls to go though just in case of an emergency from a family member.

Why not just turn phone off?

I normally to 100% but I don’t charge while sleeping or unattended.

I stopped using a battery saving app but I had problems with the app and it really didn’t help save battery life.

Stopped using wireless charger as it heats up my phone. As heat reduces the battery life.

I also put the phone on air plane mode while sleeping…this was the biggest help with battery drop.

HI @Yummy 


I charge to 85%.  Not sure if it is really good to the battery but seems like it is advised to do so
