SUMMARY
-You’ll be perfectly fine if you just buy a phone, take it out of the box, and start using it right away.
-It doesn't matter whether you’re using your phone while charging or not, it’ll still charge the same exact way.
-If the charger works well enough, it won't harm your mobile device. So if you need to urgently charge your phone in an emergency or the factory charger it came with doesn't work anymore, you can get any cheap version that’s compatible with your smartphone.
-If you simply shut your device off from time to time, nothing dramatic will happen. In fact, some devices may actually start working more effectively after you reboot them.
-Feel free to charge your phone even if the battery is as full as 90%. Charging your phone frequently doesn't hurt the battery.
-If you wanna extend your battery’s lifespan, keep it charged between 40 and 80%. Believe it or not, this actually helps the battery live the longest.
-Freezing your phone does nothing more than kill the battery. The thing is that lithium-ion batteries react badly to both cold and heat.
-The built-in system on your phone is already dealing with everything that should be done to keep your device’s performance in tip-top shape. As for third-party task managers, they’re actually more likely to decrease your phone’s performance.
-It's perfectly safe to leave your charger plugged in unless you have a damaged charger, pets at home, or no lightning protection.
-Experts recommend discharging your laptop to zero percent no more than once a month.
-If you’re just surfing the Net or reading articles, it doesn’t influence your battery life any more than listening to music does.
-Wi-Fi consumes even less energy than your smartphone needs to maintain the cellular data connection.
-Avoid leaving your smartphone, tablet, or laptop in direct sunlight or in a hot car. And definitely don’t take your gadgets to a hot place, like the beach or sauna.
-The problem with storing batteries is that they lose their charge over time. And when this charge drops to zero, your battery will automatically kill itself so that it doesn’t become unstable.

      So you leave your phone on charge overnight. It will reach 100% and then stop charging, as soon as it stops charging it is now discharging, so what happens is your phone will drop to 99% and start charging again. It goes into a charging loop that will eventually damage the battery

      In my personal experience it is bad to leave a smartphone plugged in long term, Both my iPhone 6 and 8 I used to leave docked anytime I was home and I work from home so like 20 hours a day they where charging. I upgraded both times due to the battery’s malfunctioning, showing 40% and dying and not able to charge at any decent rate. On my IPhone XR I undock it when it hits 100%

      #2 is not true. With fast charging phones i have a USB ammer/voltmeter and you can watch the voltage drop from 9/12v down to just 5 volts whenever the screen is on. Its a thermal protection because the screen creates alot of heat.
