Charge Your Phone When it Hits 50%

So that your phone’s battery doesn’t drain super-fast, it’s best to keep it healthy. NY Mag has a few tips for keeping your phone happy, and one is to charge it once it dips to 50% in power. This is because if you always use up 100% before charging, the battery will “lose its ability to hold a charge after 300 to 500 cycles,” however the 50% trick means you’ll get more like 1,200 to 1,500 cycles. Head over to NY Mag to understand why.
