Yeah it works but if you keep doing it, you'll screw your battery.

A better way would be to let it drain to as low as it can. What happens is your battery has a chip that remembers the max and minimum capacity of the battery but over time, if you constantly recharge your battery at 20%, it will start to view 20% as the lower limit (and show it as 0%) so to let it discharge down until it turns off is good as it lets teh chip "see" the entire capacity. Making it aware of it again.
