Should you charge your mobile phone overnight?Hilary Walke
Experts say no, according to a USA Today feature, since batteries are technically in constant decay from the moment they are put to use.
Apparently, the more time your battery spends plugged into a charger, the capacity it has to hold a quality charge gets lower and lower.
So, what’s the right way to charge your phone?
Charge more frequently for less time. Instead of plugging it in overnight, charge it before you go to sleep and when you wake up.
Don’t wait until your phone gets to “low battery”. Instead, consider the 30-40% range your new “red zone” and charge up when you battery hits this percentage. That will help preserve the capacity of your battery.
