Charging your phone at small intervals may damage the battery life. THAT'S A MYTH!

Here's another misconception: Charging our phones when they are close to dead.

Believe me, just DON'T!

According to a battery company Cadex:

...the 'lithium-ion' in the battery has its own level of 'stress'. If you increase the 'stress' of your smartphone by overcharging it, the battery life of your phone is ultimately shortened, which takes us to the next step which is very important.

Unplug your phone when it is fully charged.

As for humans, stress can be damaging. Similarly, over-stressing your phone by overcharging it, is going to do no good for you. Unplugging the charger is like 'relaxing after an exhausting exercise'. How would it be if you workout non-stop?

In fact, try not to charge it to 100%.

According to Battery University, "Li-ion does not need to be fully charged, nor is it desirable to do so. In fact, it is better not to fully charge, because a high voltage stresses the battery" and wears it away in the long run.

Plug-in your phone whenever you can.

Your phone battery will stay a little happier if you charge it every now and then, instead of charging it when it's empty. According to Battery University, it's best when you charge your phone when it loses 10%, albeit it's not possible to be conscious all the time, but just plug it whenever required.

When you're charging your phone, does it heat up? Here's what to do.

This is especially for iPhone. If it heats up, as Apple suggests, remove the case and charge it. If you're charging it in the hot sun, keep the iPhone covered. It'll protect your battery health.
