I don't think he was an actual robot machine. I think he was a human soldier or officer in the military sitting in front of a computer who's sole act was to spread FUD and influence our election, all under the auspices of his government. You'll notice that ever since Putin's little edict came out after Trump won, where he told all Russians everywhere to quit talking about Trump, sigma's been silent here. Too bad. He was, or IT was, at least entertaining. :wink:

No goodbye? What rude robot.

I believe he's had a few normal posts on the Overload site since the election.

"5% then charge" is the most thrilling and battery longevity friendly rule.

It is a lithium ion battery, they don't get the "memory" effect that was a problem for nickel-cadmium batteries. Lithium ion batteries can be safely charged back to 100% at any point in the discharge without significantly impacting its lifespan. They do degrade over time, but there is absolutely nothing that can be done to stop it, they start degrading from the moment they are manufactured.

The majority of cell phones automatically shut off if the battery drops below the cutoff voltage which is typically 3.3v per cell. Below 3.2v per cell lithium ion batteries can become chemically unstable and will degrade significantly faster, and for most cells below 3v a protection circuit permanently disconnects them because most attempts to charge a cell that has been depleted that far will cause it to burn up or explode.

Actually in general it is better to do partial discharges instead of deep discharges on lithium ion batteries, so charge it more often not less. Generally speaking, if you take two identical lithium ion batteries, use one in some device charging it regularly and the other you sit on a shelf with both kept at roughly the same temperature, if you test both batteries again a year later the one that was used and charged regularly will retain a greater capacity.

Krom, I normally side with your opinions, but this seems like the complete opposite of what we're supposed to do.

I thought I've researched this already. More charging = lower longevity. That's not true?

It is important to know the chemistry of your batteries. Small charge and discharge cycles are better because what actually accelerates the degradation of lithium ion batteries the most is heat. Combine the extra heating from a deep cycle with the chemical instability at lower voltages and they wear out just a little bit faster. Smaller partial cycles don't heat them up as much, this is also why you shouldn't leave your cell phone or other devices with li-poly batteries in a hot car or direct sunlight.
