    I have a Note 10 plus and I am wondering if I leave it plugged in overnight could do any harm. Because of the fast charging the note is maximum charing for a hour.

    If I wake up in the middle of the night I unplug the Note, but I don't always wake up in the middle of the night.

    How do you charge the Note?

    Thanks for the replies.

    As with every phone I have had, I charge my phone whenever I want, including overnight.

    I leave it on the wireless charger next to my bed until the alarm goes off in the morning.

    Why charge overnight? Phone charges from zero to 100 in one hour. When you wake up, put it on the charger. By the time you get done ready for the day, you have full charge.

    I want to start the day with a full charge. It goes on an Anker USB charging station before I go to bed. There I can charge it slowly though it finishes well before sunrise. I don't think this does anything bad to battery health....my last phone, the Max, had 96% battery health after almost a year using this same process.

    Except that some people are ready in much less than an hour. Or they need to carry their phone around and use it while they're getting ready. Why not charge it while you're asleep and not using it?

    I am far too lazy to stress about battery health. it inhibits my enjoyment of the phone. I charge it overnight, like most other people.

    An hour from a ZERO. I guess people can't survive 30 to 40 minutes without looking at their phones?

    It has nothing to do with being unable to survive. Some people's phone-use needs differ from yours. We have phones for our convenience. Why inconvenience ourselves to benefit our phones, especially when there is likely to be no actual benefit?

    Prolonged dwelling at a high charge state (I.e. Above ~75%) can impact overall battery health, so I don't recommend it.

    Now if we still had removable batteries, this would be almost a non-issue. When you're looking at extended down time and a big cost to replace a sealed battery, you should at least know how to care for them the best way you can. How you choose to use that info is up to you.

    Any use of your phone can impact overall battery health. Should we recommend keeping them powered off 90% of the time?

    Why buy an expensive phone if we're going to become its servant, rather than having it serve us?

    mine is on a wireless pad during the night. I stream audio books before sleeping and whenever I wake up. this prevents battery drain while I sleep.

    I have AutomateIt Pro setup to dim my screen to 5% when placed on a charger and then invoke lock screen (no lock) so I can immediately tell if it is placed properly to charge. works really well like this.

    no heat or issues from the Anker pad so far. it's my first Anker charging product so I'm a bit wary. this model doesn't have a huge bright light or cause an echo while listening. I grabbed an extra one for the car.

    tried Samsung's last year model and it had a huge blue light and caused an echo. it's on its way back today.

    Even letting it sit on the shelf and not connected to anything they will eventually die. So using what I'm assuming is your sarcastic logic, why have battery powered phones at all?

    Yes, batteries will degrade. How you treat them will affect how quickly it does so.

    Not sarcastic at all. I honestly fail to see why convenient charging practices should be singled out as a recommended thing to sacrifice for battery conservation, rather than any of the other battery-draining (hence battery-cycling) attractions we could choose to sacrifice for the same cause (such as high-res video streaming, games, etc). Certainly the phone-care instructions in Samsung's user manual make no such recommendation about charging practices.

    The only charging practice I adopt for battery preservation is to use a slow-charging pad for overnight charging. I wouldn't gain any convenience from fast charging overnight, and slow pads are less expensive anyway.

    If the OP asked about changing screen refresh rates, resolutions, mobile data vs Wi-Fi, or reduced battery consumption in general, I would've responded in kind. The reason overnight charging practices was singled out by me (and everyone else in this thread) is because that's specifically what was asked. I'm sorry you seem to take offence that I stayed on topic, even though it was with an unpopular opinion.

    Same here. Use my wireless charge stand - also charges my watch. Leave them on overnight

    No offense taken. I appreciate your opinion, and I'm merely expressing my own as well.

    I'd rather save the $100 or whatever the going rate is these days, and turning my phone over to a random person to replace my battery. Or to give it up entirely for a week or two for those needing to ship it to a service center. Charging options are so common place that it's rare I'm without access to power, so plugging in a little more often isn't an issue.
