The common question among people who use their smartphone actively seems to be "How often should I charge my phone?" "Is it safe to charge my smartphone overnight?"


I'll give you a simple answer.


Instead of doing a full-charge cycle (0-100%), you should do partial charges throughout the day to maximize your battery life in the long-run. Never do full charges, though. Top up your battery life to approximately 80% once your battery hits 20%. Always follow the 80/20 rule, and ideally, pursue the partial charges while your phone is powered off.


Note: Full-cycle charges will destroy your battery over time and it'll decrease its overall capacity to hold charges like it used to.
