    SUMMARY
    -You’ll be perfectly fine if you just buy a phone, take it out of the box, and start using it right away.
    -It doesn't matter whether you’re using your phone while charging or not, it’ll still charge the same exact way.
    -If the charger works well enough, it won't harm your mobile device. So if you need to urgently charge your phone in an emergency or the factory charger it came with doesn't work anymore, you can get any cheap version that’s compatible with your smartphone.
    -If you simply shut your device off from time to time, nothing dramatic will happen. In fact, some devices may actually start working more effectively after you reboot them.
    -Feel free to charge your phone even if the battery is as full as 90%. Charging your phone frequently doesn't hurt the battery.
    -If you wanna extend your battery’s lifespan, keep it charged between 40 and 80%. Believe it or not, this actually helps the battery live the longest.
    -Freezing your phone does nothing more than kill the battery. The thing is that lithium-ion batteries react badly to both cold and heat.
    -The built-in system on your phone is already dealing with everything that should be done to keep your device’s performance in tip-top shape. As for third-party task managers, they’re actually more likely to decrease your phone’s performance.
    -It's perfectly safe to leave your charger plugged in unless you have a damaged charger, pets at home, or no lightning protection.
    -Experts recommend discharging your laptop to zero percent no more than once a month.
    -If you’re just surfing the Net or reading articles, it doesn’t influence your battery life any more than listening to music does.
    -Wi-Fi consumes even less energy than your smartphone needs to maintain the cellular data connection.
    -Avoid leaving your smartphone, tablet, or laptop in direct sunlight or in a hot car. And definitely don’t take your gadgets to a hot place, like the beach or sauna.
    -The problem with storing batteries is that they lose their charge over time. And when this charge drops to zero, your battery will automatically kill itself so that it doesn’t become unstable.

    Ahem... according to one of your videos charging overnight is dangerous to your phone battery, and makes it drain faster.

    1. phone already regulates the battery to charge up to 80% but it shows 100%.
    2. when battery drops to 0% it doesn't die.
    3. internet uses your battery the most.
    4. lithium ion batteries don't care if they are 150F or 30F.

    You're only half right about the Droid turbo, yes it has a charger specifically for it to charge only but it's the brick you have to have, you can buy any cable for it and it'll still charge exactly the same, however if you lose the charging brick then you might as well just buy a new one all together

Am I nuts ?

    Best - dump the 'phone. It's watching you, you were trained on Tamagochi. To use a smartphone at today's level in the 70s would have had you reported as a 'phone pest. You don't need to carry this around - dump it and forget about it - return to proper life. End of problems with 'phones.

    Number 2 has little to do with doing multiple activities.. It is about increasing the amount of heat at an already hot device which would have a direct impact on the battery's performance.

    Well, there's a little piece of information that you forgot to mention, probably because is pre millenial stuff and could rise more questions than clarification: bateries DO have memory, bateries could get harmed if charging too frecuently when those batteries are NiCad or NiMH. And that kind of batteries are still sold nowdays BTW, not in phones, but still... And THANK YOU for debunk all those miths, these kind of videos are very necessary.

    So to summarize
    1. Don't let your battery die or 0% because it will lose its chemical reactions inside thus might damage the battery.
    2. 100% doesn't typically mean full, as it is only an indicator but it is good practice to constantly charge so to avoid #1.
    3. Don't let your battery heat up by leaving it in hot temperatures/conditions. When it is fully charged, plug it off.

    Using while charging HARM your phone, your phone will also have a chance that your battery will be damaged when you charge overnight, same happens when charging while using your phone. It's NOT SAFE when you leave chargers plugged to the wall! And that's I'm gonna say.

    Heat is bad for the overall life span of a battery. So doing things like gaming while charging can actually decrease the life of a battery because of the heat generated. So it's not completely true that using your phone while charging won't effect the batteries life. It just depends on what you are doing while charging.
