I only charge my phone to 80% and plug it in when it reaches 30%. Using the Accubattery app, it says that my battery still has 94% of it's maximum capacity...meaning that instead of holding a 4000mah total charge, it's now only capable of a 3757mah charge. Does anybody else monitor their battery health, and if so, how's your battery after a year's use?
I always fully charge and run my battery down as low as possible. Usually when my app says 15% battery life and I have no issues with mine. Do you close unused apps and restart your device at least 1x a week?
@EmpwredDesigner I have all those things set up to do every other day while I'm sleeping. I never charge overnight either. I'm just wondering how much of an impact being so meticulous with battery actually makes in the span of the phone's first year.
@TheRetrokid I never charge over night. I've read of phones overcharging at night and getting to hot. So I only charge when my batt is critically low. And I do often let it fie completely. As a computer/electronic nerd. Its actually pretty good to let them die on occasion and fully recharge. Also, I try my best not to use my device when its charging. Maybe you have a faulty battery. I've been there. My carrier usually replaces for free if that's the case and it's fairly new. And some can even check the battery. Worth checking out
I also use Accubattey at 80% and 20% no issues with the note 9. I had the galaxy S7 prior for 2 years. Battery performed just as well. The key is the charging cycle and trying to be consistent with it.
I think the only problem with maintaining your battery is the loss of convenience you get from starting the day at 100% and not having to charge once until late at night. Now I have to micro charge at least twice a day in order to stay between 30 and 80 percent.
