Common sense may tell us that we should only charge our devices when they’re low on power, once they are close to losing all their juice. But, surprisingly, the opposite is true! We usually wait until our devices are very low and then give them a full charge all in one go. But we’re doing it wrong, according to experts.
Modern devices contain Lithium-ion batteries, which have limits on how you should charge them. The best way to take care of these types of batteries is to keep them charged between 40-80%. Over time, charging small amounts of time is much gentler than fewer long charges on your device.
