    I know that for new battery's that you should get 5 to 6 good charge cycles killing the battery to 1%. With a ZeroLemon a zerolemon after 6 charge cycles is it OK to charge the battery when its at 20%?

    I'm pretty sure that initial charging advice isn't appropriate for Li ion batteries (which I assume the ZeroLemon is).

    No problem charging a battery that's had a few cycles at 20%. No need to go that low even, just don't keep charging it at 90% :)

    i've to have read that it is not needed for li ion batteries. yet, that is what zero lemon recommends. no idea why. can't find what kind of battery they have. they just say patent pending.

    idk, i think it can't hurt to follow the manufacturer's suggestion. i figure they had a reason.

    Well I did a little more searching around and its OK to charge the battery before it hits 1-2% but it is a good idea to at least a once a month to actually take the battery to 1-2%.
