I wonder if they are all crapping themselves now???

Charging optimisation was first introduced with the Qnovo tech in X,
Basically it will extend the overall life of your battery by learning your charging patterns and charging to 95% then waiting until the exact time needed to charge to 100% instead of charging to 100, when drops to 99 charging again, and again and again as this is what kills lithium quicker.
Unrelated to note7 but shows the kind of things other manufacturers have to reduce lithium wear.


I've taken this from a recent thread in order to highlight it and discuss in it's own thread.
It seems quite relevant at the moment, so thoughts on the best way to look after and prolong your mobile device's battery please.
What is the best method of charging - for how long - to what level - how often etc, etc........

For lithium, the best advice is to try not to let the battery completely run out..
Keeping the battery above 5% is recommended to extend battery life.
Leaving on charge overnight is quite bad, the charger is continuously topping up the battery and generating lots of heat and will reduce the overall life span of the battery.

No idea of any intricacies with charging.
When my Note 4 reaches 20% I put it on charge. Fast charger. Takes 35 mins and it's up to 100%. Unplug

It must be said that my mobile is not the device I use most. I usually have access to my PC so use that.

Probably not the best person to discuss this topic....but that's my 5 pennorth for what it's worth :P

Not at all - it's open for everyone to give an opinion

In fairness I had no idea that charging overnight was a bad idea.

When my S3 was getting old (and before I bought a new battery) I use to leave this on charge overnight.

I didn't need to with the Note 3...but am just saying I used to do it. I felt it was needed...

I fried my Note 4 battery charging every night. Less than 12 months but Samsung here replaced it under warranty. I was quite shocked they did so.
I'm leaving now to go find myself....if I arrive before I get back, please ask me to wait!

Keep above 20% (where possible) and charge to 95%. NEVER leave on charge overnight :s_bomb
