    You should let your device charge to capacity. As for how long - however long it takes.

    It'll have some charge already. I'd let it go down til 1 or 2 percent and then charge all the way up.

    That is the worst advice for a Lithium Ion battery. You are thinking about the old days like 7 or 10 years ago when it was recommended to drain the battery to 1% then charge it full then disconnect as soon as it reaches 100%.

    Lithium ION batteries like to be topped off all the time and perform best when you don't constantly drain them to below 15%

    I think in theory they say the most modern batteries last longer if you keep them in the 20-80% range at all times - not lower, and not higher. Though that would be nearly impossible to do unless you are staring at your phone while charging it all of the time.

    It might be bad advice but it's how I consistently get three days on a charge.

    I guess the question is why do you need to go three days between charges? Do you never have an opportunity (i.e., when you are sleeping at night) to charge the phone while it's not actively in use?

    I have plenty of opportunity. I just see no need to constantly keep charging something that still has plenty of charge left.

    It's how I have always treated my phones since 2007 and have never ruined a battery. I use them till they get down to about 5% and then charge them. Like you, I get between 2-3 days between charges. Of course, I have three iPhones I use daily so my battery life standby gets extended on some days.

    I also do the same on my two MacBook Pros and my Surface Pro 3. Again, I have never ruined a battery doing this in all these years.
