Default Re: Best way to handle logetivity for Battery??

If it a Lithium Ion battery the following is the case.
(most, if not all current cell phone batteries are now Li-Ion)


Simple Guidelines

Avoid frequent full discharges because this puts additional strain on the battery.
Several partial discharges with frequent recharges are better for lithium-ion than
one deep one. Recharging a partially charged lithium-ion does not cause harm
because there is no memory. (In this respect, lithium-ion differs from nickel-based
batteries.) Short battery life in a laptop is mainly cause by heat rather than charge /
discharge patterns.

Batteries with fuel gauge (laptops) should be calibrated by applying a deliberate
full discharge once every 30 charges. Running the pack down in the equipment does
this. If ignored, the fuel gauge will become increasingly less accurate and in some
cases cut off the device prematurely.

Keep the lithium-ion battery cool. Avoid a hot car. For prolonged storage, keep the
battery at a 40% charge level.

Consider removing the battery from a laptop when running on fixed power. (Some
laptop manufacturers are concerned about dust and moisture accumulating inside
the battery casing.)

Avoid purchasing spare lithium-ion batteries for later use. Observe manufacturing
dates. Do not buy old stock, even if sold at clearance prices.

If you have a spare lithium-ion battery, use one to the fullest and keep the other cool
by placing it in the refrigerator. Do not freeze the battery. For best results, store the
battery at 40% state-of-charge.
