I'm so glad I still use my Galaxy S5 since 2015 and can easily replace the battery

Somehow I picture this going down like so:

Linus: "Hey Everybody, today we're going to film a bit where explain charging a battery with the analogy of cramming a bunch of people in a car, so I'm going to need everyone in the office to go out and jam themselves into one car"

Everyone in office immediately runs out and crams into one car

Linus: "Guys, guys, GUYS!!! Wait 'til we set up the cameras!"

Whilst I'm not arguing with the behaviour of batteries. This is still crap advice..... Your basically saying to preserve your batteries charge capacity by never making use of your charge capacity.... Analogous to preserving water by never drinking water.... Just use your battery as normal until its capacity is reduced then revert to regular charging once you need to when the capacity starts to drop away...

As an EV fanboy, 20% to 80% is safe, while you can probably go to 90%.

Yeah, I don't have time to spend checking how much battery life my phone has to see if it needs to "graze".

My iPhone 6 is almost 4 years old, but I’ve always used it all day until it got to around 20% and then charged it to 100, also always let the thing charge overnight, it still has 97% battery health according to the various things I’ve checked it with. Haven’t been treating this XR any different in the few weeks I’ve had it.
