    Hi guys,

    I opened this topic to talk about tips and ideas for good battery usage and charging methods.

    What are your doing to keep your iPhone and iPad batteries in good condition? When do you charge your phone? Do you wait for a certain %?

    I have been told to charge it when it was really low so I usually plug it in the wall when it's at 1% exactly and I let it die one time per month. I do the same methods with my iPhone or my iPad. Do you think these are good? Do you have some tips?

    You're wasting your time. All batteries fail, and whatever efforts you make to "preserve" it will not matter. Use your device how you want to and replace the battery if you think it's not holding enough charge. Odds are Apple will do it for you if there's actually a problem.
