Extending life the smartphone battery

One morning, I was commenting to an iPhone user that his battery is nearly flat. He is trying to prolong the battery life by not charging overnight, reducing the charge cycles. The battery is currently a third party replacement as the original got worn out.

That got me thinking. My phone with Oreo 8.1, the overnight drain is around 0.5 to 0.8%. Why don’t I stop charging during the night and only when needed?  Battery life is a function of the number of recharge cycles. By reducing this, it would make the life of my OnePlus 3T last longer.

So today starts this little experiment. This is going to be interesting.
