Re: How Often Should You Charge Your Battery?

Let me clear it up once and for all. Your battery has charging cycles (Only so many of them). Lets assume for arguments sake that your phone's battery has 200. If you charge every day you will burn through your charge cycles (By the way, ALL batteries have cells.. still!) Your battery won't even last a year. Now if you charge every 4 days your battery will last 4 times as long. The battery makeup is now Lithium Ion instead of the Nickel Metal Hydride or Nickel Cadium. the older Nickel batteries developed a "memory" and the Li Ion supposedly don't according to the manufacturers. But other factors play an even bigger role such as leaving your phone plugged in while your phone is on all night and leaving your phone in your car in extreme weather like Heat or Cold. Lastly over usage will bloat the battery from excessive talk time and recharge time in fast form. It is best to let the battery cool down before recharging it and vice versa. Again this is only advice. Thanks
