    My understanding of lithium ion batteries is that the life of the battery is determined by charge and discharge cycles. That means everytime you unplug or plug your phone in is a cycle. Over time the battery degrades in this manner. So charge the phone completely and then remove it until you get most of the life out of it before changing completely.

    Dont charge it overnight because oneplus has clearly mentioned in the guidelines of the phone box not to charge above 12 hours. So it must be bad for overcharging. I know its gets cutt off after 100 % bt Oneplus doesnt recommend it.

    Long time charging doesn't harm the battery.

    Nowadays the charging technology of the mobile phone basically uses Power-Path Management. When it detects that the battery is fully charged, it will close the battery charging path and supply power to the mobile phone by the adapter. The battery will not be charged as long as the system power consumption doesn't exceed the maximum output current of the adapter.

    However, overnight charging is not recommended. Because if anything unusual happens, we barely have enough time to respond. (An answer from a Dash Charge engineer)

    You can charge it overnight it's fine. The battery stops the charger from giving power after it reached 100 percent

    I don't have time to charge in the morning.

    I've always had the habit of charging overnight, using a slower adaptor (such as 5V 1A). Of course it will take longer, but I don't care and the battery surely won't get hot at that charging rate.

    So what is the point of using dash overnight?
    I don't think it will hurt the battery in a short time, but I do not think it is useful either, as the phone will sit at 100% for a very long time, after having received a 4amps charge, which can be stressfull.

    I often forget to plug my phone off and leave it charging overnight. You shouldn't do that, it drains the battery faster. Just do as the others said, a cycle of 10-80% is best for your battery

    Leaving the phone to charge overnight wont be good for your battery's life. Eventually your battery will swell up and start to drain excessively.

    However if you've installed a new OS, doing a complete drain of your battery and leaving it to fully charge overnight is recommended - Do this *only* for 3 or 4 battery cycles. This is done to facilitate ion flow and also so that your phone can better calibrate the battery with the new OS.
