The Apprentice Asked: Is it GOOD or BAD for my iPhone battery to do full battery cycles almost every time? Please see belo
I have gotten into a habit of doing full battery cycles with my iPhone 4S almost all the time.
What I mean is: i will charge it till it is completely full (100%) and use it until the phone turns off on its own at 0% battery. I then fully charge it again and use the full battery till it dies then charge again.
Is having this charging habit good or bad for the iPhone?
That's actually the best way to keep your battery life long…Apple's recommendation is that you do that at least once a month, so doing a full depletion every time is actually healthy for your battery.
BUT THEY ARE DESIGNED TO WITHSTAND IT
EVERY TIME A LITHIUM BATTERY IS DRAINED DOWN TO ZERO PERCENT AND RECHARGED TO 100 PERCENT, THE TOTAL CAPACITY IS DIMINISHED. (LASTS ABOUT 600-800 CYCLES)
BEST THING IS TO KEEP THEM BETWEEN 20 AND 80 PERCENT (U MIGHT GET UP TO 3000 CYCLES)
