    Saw this the other day: http://mashable.com/2014/06/18/phone-charging-myths/

    With my OnePlus One I follow these rules religiously:
    • Always use the original charger.
    • Use a quality car charger (Anker) when needed.
    • Never let my phone completely die.
    • Charge phone when it is between 20% & 40% to 100%.
    • Reboot my phone every two to three days.
    • Reduce screen brightness and turn off bluetooth and GPS when not needed.

    Because full charging and too low charge may damage the battery (they say)

    Too low charge can result in sudden shut down of phone, hence not advisable. But I havent heard any such for full charge, that it will EXPLODE the phone....common sense, i guess

    So I found out changing the CPU governed to powersave and runtime to art has saved lots of juice. Took off the charger at 95% and 1 day 8 hours still at 87% (this is with a few voice calls and texting.)

    I've always gotten best battery by charging it to 100% always. I don't charge it mid day for little amount of time. Meaning whenever on charger it will charge until 100% no matter what level its at

    Meh who cares? What's the point of enjoying a powerhouse like this if all we care for is battery life? It's obsessive.
