    I really didn't understand your question. But i think you are asking whether we need to charge the battery only when it reduces below 20%, is it?
    If so, then the answer is "NO". You need not wait till the battery drains up so much.
    Hope you got it :)

    I'm afraid your wrong with waiting for the battery to drain before charging. you can charge at 50% everytime and you wont see much of a drop in longevity. The waiting until its used up is from old school battery tech.

    As soon ad I'm near a charge point I stick the phone on charge regardless of how much is left. occasionally i've let it run flat but that's when I don't need the phone for a couple of days.

    This battery you can charge anytime. If mine is 80% and i am off somewhere i charge it up.
    I need an operational battery. I dont think this battery has a memory.

    True. Only old NiCad batteries benefit from completely draining them from time to time, but new Lithium-Ion ones hate it.
