I mean.. it is 2 years later haha but it is aggrivating when I have to use my phone daily..and it only charges when it feels like it.

Now with the batteries of the HTC One.. do you all recommend running it to 0% a few times when I first get the phone? Should I run the battery all the way down out of the box before charging it?
Definitely not.

These are the newer lithium polymer batteries.

Do nothing to condition them or break them in.

Calibration happens naturally.

Forcing a battery to zero charge (your phone will shut down before that) isn't the best for battery life, neither is high temperature operation.

Just use it and don't care.
