    If I want to maximize the length that the Z Play's battery maintains it's capacity, would it be better for me to charge it every night and top it off, or to charge it only when it's running low, say around 20%?

    With today's batteries, it doesn't really matter. The battery life is rated in 'full charges', which means that if you charge it one time from 0 to 100 is the same as if you charge it five times from 80 to 100. That being said, batteries don't like extremes, so letting it 'die' as a common practice or not using it fully (or at all) as a common practice is not recommended.

    I agree - it's not worth overthinking the battery. The Z Play will get you through a day easily, and for most people 2 days or even more. I'd just say plug it in at night so it's a daily routine, and enjoy never thinking about your battery again. And occasionally if you're travelling or something & can't plug it in, oh well, you're probably still good the next day!

    The conventional wisdom I'm familiar with says keep battery between 20%-80%. Can't exactly remember where I read that.
