    I've gone down to 2% a few times, usually because I let it go another day.

    I'll let it go to 4-5% if not near a charger, then swap batteries. Otherwise, I'll put it on the charger in the car it at the office fairly regularly.

    No particular %. I charge it when I am near a charger. A few times per day usually.

    Going back to the OP's question, it would depend on how long I was planning on using it until the next charge. However, I have rarely ever dropped below 50%, if at all. On a typical work day, it's unplugged around 5:30 and plugged in around 11:30. Usually around 65-75% battery left with an average of 2 hours screen on time.

    I go down to like 75%. Since I have Qi charging in my house and work, I normally just drop the phone on the pads and charge. Do it out of habit mostly.

    I usually swap batteries around 20% which is usually on the way out of the house in the morning each day. On days where I can lay around in bed longer, I'll play around on the phone and drain it a little lower than 20% but still swap it out before hitting 0. I love swappable batteries now.

    I think according to the battery engineers it is best to not let your battery "go low" the higher it stays the better as long as it is not too high, that is worse than low.

    yeah, well 2 years in and my battery is fine. It holds a charge just as equally well as a much newer one, or just as good as it did when it was new. Too much theoretical bs around here and not enough actual facts on the matter. the fact is if I can go for 2 years with often depleting the battery under say, 15 percent and it is still fine, big whoop. BATTERYS ARE CHEAP ANYWAY SO WHO GIVES A FLIP if they don't survive more than 2-3 years? No matter how you treat it, either you will buy a NEW phone or the battery will EVENTUALLY go bad anyway. sheesh!

    There are so many things that people do with their phone that depletes the battery, that it's immaterial (or at least inconsequential) at what level they elect to usually recharge they battery.

    Reminds of people who covered their couches with clear plastic...

    LOL I hear yah, especially on the plastic covered couch thing. My brother in law put custom white leather seats in his SUV and then covered them with towels. The seat bottoms never saw the light of day until the truck was junked . . I can't roll like that. My shet's meant to be used and enjoyed.

    For what its worth my early comment on lifespan (which I fear sort of kicked off the debate) was directed more towards those who fear that their habits will impact battery longevity. I think we're both on the same page that it really shouldn't matter with these devices having replaceable batteries.

    Main thing is having enough charge to enjoy this beast . . some of us (like myself) have the luxury of being able to top off frequently while others will need to rely on a second battery . . Its great to have the option! With my Nexus 4 I used to be reliant on an external battery pack . .

    My best piece of completely unscientific advice is to use the OEM charger and not something you get for $5 off of Amazon or eBay. Otherwise, I think you're in for a shorter battery lifespan.

    That doesn't really answer the question LOL.

    I have gone to as low as about 15%, but that's rare. I usually plug in by 30%...and that could be after 24-36 hours of use.
    To answer the question I would just let it run out but that doesn't happen because when at my desk it rests in a Tylt view wireless charger and at night it rests in a wireless charger. All low battery notifications are turned off. When on the road I just pop in a spare battery each night or morning. Spare batteries are charged in a separate charger. Not advocating this method as I suppose data could be lost but I have never had a problem and it is nice to not worry about the battery. I can't remember it running out but I think it might automatically go to a power saving mode before turning off. I do have a developers edition that is rooted which allows me to turn off low batter warnings.
