    before charging your battery?

    I like to keep mine above 50% and was wondering if it was better to drain the battery a little lower before charging?

    Depends. If I’m out during the day playing Pokémon Go (yes, I still play it ) then I like to top it off because it eats the battery. Otherwise, my usage allows me to be between 10-20% by bedtime and that’s plenty. I’ve been down to 1% but haven’t actually killed it yet.

    I still get jittery around 30%. Usually I don’t go any lower than 20%, but I will sometimes get it down to around 10% before charging. But usually 25-35% is where I charge again.

    I don’t have a set %, but place mine on the charger for half and hour or so before I leave work and then plug mine in overnight to charge.

    i really don’t have a set percentage before charging. Up until recently, I’d let my iPhone charge overnight l, regardless of the amount of charge left. Now that I typically keep my iPhone of the wireless charger at my desk throughout the day, I rarely charge it overnight, with the exception of the weekend.

    Kind of depends on what my plans are. I don't really pay much attention to where my phone is unless I know it will be a while before I can charge it again and I'll need a sufficient charge.

    I charge overnight and don’t usually think about it again until bedtime. Sometimes I have to charge during the day if I have nothing else to do but play on the device. Rarely happens.

    Same here. Percent doesn't matter, i plug it in every night. It is usually over 50 anyway.

    Don't really have a percentage at which I'll look at my phone and say, "oh it's time to charge my phone" but I always charge at bedtime.

    I charge mine up at work, but I never leave it on the charger. Usually it's around 70% left when I throw it on the charger before I leave work. I don't charge it up overnight at all because I used to do that with the Note 7 and we all know what happened to those devices.

    It depends.
    I always top up throughout the day if I know I’ll be out at night.

    Yeah, it’s always nice to know that the device is juiced up before leaving.

    My threshold is 30% but if I ever have to charge throughout the day I will ALWAYS charge up to 100%. It’s this OCD thing I do. I really want a Smart Battery Case for the X because that eliminates having to try to plan my charge if I’m going out and need a charge

    I start getting nervous right around 50%. As a father of two boys who are as clumsy as I am I’m always worried that something will happen and my phone will be half dead. Luckily my iPhone X doesn’t like me knowing battery percentage without some effort.

    About a week ago I let it hit 2% before plugging it in.... true story

    But normally I plug it in at bedtime. It’s usually around 60% give or take a few %.

    Right now it’s at 70% and I’ve used it all day listening to music, nothing else really!
    Pretty impressed with the battery ❤️

    I only charge overnight at around 40-50%. Unless travelling with wireless car charger.

    I used charge every night, but with this 8 plus I can go two days sometimes, like right now I’m on day two and at 66% yesterday wasn’t a heavy phone day granted.

    I have no problem letting it go right down to the ten percent message and then some, I’m never far from a charging source .
