    Hi all,

    This has to do with maximising the long term battery life by charging it the right way.

    On the one hand, I've heard a lot about taking a phone battery from 100 to nearly 0 % to maximise its life. I have adhered to this method on all my past (non-smartphone) phones and generally come up with good results.

    On the other hand, I have recently come across a very different opinion on this issue. Apparently, the best way to charge a smartphone battery is to maintain it between 80 to 40 % charge, with the usual 100 to 0 % cycle once a month.

    Now I am mixed up as to the best way to charge the Moto G battery so that its charge capacity depletes as slowly as possible.

    Any thought?

    Thanks!

    Use it and change it when it tells you to or about 15% ish or just charge it every night. Do what ever makes you happy. When its bust and doesn't hold a charge for longer than 24 hours then chuck it and buy a new one. Oh the joys of having a cheap phone.
