This video applies to every lithium-ion battery-powered gadget out there. Have you ever "calibrated" a lithium ion battery? Old battery tech was nickel based: ni-mh for short.

I seem to remember the memory effect only happened when one was very precise. E.g., satellite equipment that was charged the exact length of time each time, e.g., the amount of time spent in sunlight which was very precisely equal.

Hello, I am a person who uses his laptop the whole day for photo editing stuff. I recently bought a new 2016 MacBook Pro (15 inch). What is the best way to use it so that the battery is least affected? Should I keep my laptop charging full time and use? (plugging in the charging cable and use it) or Should charge it 100% and then unplug the charging cable and then plug it in when the battery is drained off, andkeep repeating this the whole day? or please suggest me the best way to use my laptop the whole day. Thank you.

@marquess brownlee. Hope you are doing good. I have problem with my charging of my phone. Am using a moto g4 plus. Problem is the charge starts reducing probably immediately after i remove the plug.. should i check for any background apps running(if so how should I disable it). Or should I change my charging technique

If you leave it plugged in it will lose battery percentage then charge back up. If this happens many time you're just deteriorating the battery because you'll have less charge cycles left.

Whispered Metsutan (9 months ago)
I have a smartphone that constantly overheats. I'm not exactly sure if it's the phone or the battery that is getting hot. Otherwise generally you want to at least keep 40% in the battery as li-ions degrade quicker when the cells are nearly depleted. Has to do with the chemistry of the battery degrading if you are generally charging from 0%-100% It's less problematic if it was 50-100%.

cadmium based. ni_mh batteries don't need much for memory or anything. nica batteries do, and have much lower capacity than nimh.
