What is the current reccomendations on battery charging? Should one wait until the phone power has dropped to its lowest level say 5% to 10% before recharging? The thinking being that it this prolongs the life of the battery.

 

I did this on my Note 3 and the battery is still pretty and lasts the whole day.

It's a subjective topic. 

 

Many have their own preferences. 

 

Me...

 

I top up regularly on normal charge. 

 

I only fast charge if I need a quick boost. 

 

I find that not letting my battery drop below 20% and charging to 99% keeps my battery in good shape. 

 

Don't let it completely deplete. 

 

The best battery tip I was given years ago was to turn Off the battery % sign in the status bar and just enjoy the phone.

yah I don't leave it charging overnight

Allowing your batterydrop limits the number of cycles the battery has thereby making it loose its life, so i suggest you top up charge whenever you notice your battery is going below 50% because at 10% you already have 90% DOD which reduces it cycle
