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. New battery technology is lithium based: li-ion for short.

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 (6 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%.

Just bought a new battery for my samsung galaxy s3 for Batteries Plus. This salesman said that I would need to fully charge the battery to 100% the first time in the phone because if I only charged it to 80% or so, the phone would consider an 80% charge to be a 100% charge thereafter. Is there any truth to that? Thanks.

hi5. & also i thumbed up.
epiksar (1 year ago)
I don't think the issue with overcharging is the actual problem. The problem with charging overnight is that the device goes through mini cycles to keep at 100 percent, and that's what hurts the battery
Sketti Boi (1 year ago)
some cell phones usually different models over many different brands will (literally) burn through batteries quicker than others due to phone generated heat ongoing and especially while charging depleted batteries.
Sketti Boi (1 year ago)
good video, just liked and subscribed. heat needed to be addresses more though, in my own experience heat is definitely the no#1 enemy of rechargeable lithium barteries though. All the proof you need is there in observing two identical laptops one charged mainly when pc is shut off and one charged when in heavy use. I'm sure gamers using laptops could really relate.
