Hey devRanters, how do you charge your phone?

1) Let ist almost drop to about 1-5%, and then let it charge fully up over night, and keep it plugged in till morning.
2) Just let it drop about 10-20% and charge it immediately up, and unplug it, when it reaches full charge

    Usually do 2 but I've been doing 1 lately due to exhaustion

    Never let your battery fall below 15%-20%, it affects it badly.

    Also, never charge it to 100% for the same reason.

    In general, try to keep it between 20% and 90%.

    It depends on the technology of the battery: NIMH, NICD, LIPO...

    @No-one Doubting is good mentality but for phones what I said is true, you can look it up.

    @Plinn Right now every phone uses a lithium based battery chemistry so the 20/90 rule applies.

    @nickpapoutsis I apply this rule but not the 90% thing. From what I've heard it's especially that the battery chemistry can be badly altered when in low voltage, due to high or low temperatures. I cringe when I see ppl leaving their computer on 0% during the winter...

    4: Plug it in every night, unplug it every morning. Magnetic bedside table cable FTW.
