Hi. Is it good for the battery to keep my S9+ on charge overnight or best to charge only when needed? I mean rather a preference of when to charge. What's the optimum for the battery. Thx

No it's not recommended. Charge it any time during the day when it drops to around 50%. With my Samsung i do this just before I go to bed. I always have a spare battery pack in case of emergencies. Better safe than sorry

I never charge my phone overnight.. it means that I can charge it before I go to work and still have 70% battery life when I get home...

Hi @mijawall61 

 

There is a lot of opinions on how best to charge a phone.

 

Just Google to subject and you'll see on tech blog pages and forums like this one.  :smiling-face:

 

Some don't let their phone's reach 100% full charge.

 

I do not let me phone drop below 15% but I've had no issues over the many years I've been using phone's from letting it reach 100% or have had any issues charging overnight in any way.

 

The phone and Samsung Charares are clever enough to know when 100% has been reached and then it reverts to trickle charging.

 

Personally I turn my phone Off overnight and charge it via normal charging i.e I don't use fast charging unless I need a quick boost of power which is rare.

 

This is my own experience and personal opinion.
