Charge till 100% full, however long it takes. Let it trickle after that for say 30 minutes (means leave it connected to charger after it reaches 100%).

From there use it in one go without charging until almost 0%.

Then charge it in one go without interruption till 100% full. You can let it trickle a little bit.

The above is called calibration.

If you decide to leave your phone turned off and unused for a long period of time, do it when the battery is at 50% capacity.

Always use a genuine wall charger, and a genuine or certified cable.

Heat will damage your battery.

Extreme cold will diminish its capacity temporarily, until the temperature rises again.

New battery basically takes 2 hours to fully charged.

So try to charge your battery 100% once and then dont charge it till the battery goes approx zero %.

if you doing so it will increase the life of your battery.

Dont put it for charge on every hours.

We all know too much food is not good.
