    I don't ever pay attention to my battery percentage. I don't even have a battery icon. I turned off all my indicator icons and only have the clock and energy ring on cause the battery life is outstanding.

    I wouldn't know. I don't abuse my batteries by charging them to 100%.
    And just what is the benefit of not charging them to 100% ?

    Li-ion batteries don't like full charges or deep discharging. When you go above 75%, it can cause accelerated internal breakdown that lowers capacity and shortens the overall life of the battery. I personally killed one in 6 months before I learned about that. It wasn't a big deal in the past when batteries were cheap and user replaceable. With the switch to sealed batteries that are expensive and time consuming to replace, it's more important to properly care for them.

    According to some of the posters even if you charge to 100% it not 100% might be 98 % so I think your safe

    Assuming that is true, which there is enough evidence for me to believe it, it's not much of a difference in the grand scheme of things. The higher you charge it, the greater the risk of damage.

    A lot of people think the risk is overcharging the battery. Barring any defects, that's not true. Over charging is a huge fire danger and battery chargers are designed to shut off at the proper charge level.

    The downside to something like this is everyone will probably have a different answer. Different cell strength, what's going on in the background, what apps are loaded, etc.

    I'm not saying this is a bad thing to discuss....just a lot of variables.

    The whole battery charging to 80% and not letting them drop below 40% is overated. I use my phones alot and have yet to kill a battery or deteriorate one noticeably unless they are more than 3 years old. I try not to go below 25% but the most important thing is not to drain them fully on a regular basis which my wife and daughter do and after 2 years there batteries are fatigued.

    It depends like Golfdriver said , I've been charging my device from 5 percent to 100 all the time , my iPhone x which is about 2 years old at 92% capacity and my 8+ still going strong . I say do what works best for you .

    Your X is probably 1.5 years old but who's counting.

    Exactly. I always throw mine on the charger over night and not worry about it and it drains to whatever percentage is left at the end of the day. I don’t stress about all these stressing to save your battery. Unless you keep your phone 3 years, it doesn’t matter. All of my phones which is iPhone XS and S10 will only be kept one year. I get the new version every year no matter what.

    And at what percentage do you recommend to start charging from and stop at with the S10 plus?

    The common recommendation is to try keeping it between 40-80% for a balance of overall life and time between charges. If you go outside of that range now and then, it's not the immediate end of the world. Letting it go below 20% is when the potential for damage really ramps up, and should be avoided if at all possible.

    From 100% to 99%? I don't know, maybe 5 or so minutes? Give or take a minute or two?

    If your previous phones would take 20 mins to drop 1%, I'd imagine it wasn't calculating the battery % correctly. I mean if 20 min screen time is 1% drop, then *if it were accurate* then it should take 99 x 1% drops at 20 min screen time per 1% drop.

    Quick maths:
    99 x 20 mins = 2,000 minutes total screen time
    2,000 minutes / 60 minutes = 33.33 hours screen on time

    Yeah - no chance your previous phone had 33 hours screen on time. So it just wasn't calculating the initial 1% drop accurately. The S10 is probably calculating it correctly now.

    With your S10 at 4 minutes for a 1% drop:

    99 x 4 minutes = 396 minutes total screen time
    396 minutes / 60 minutes = 6.6 hours screen on time

    Much more reasonable screen on time.
    Where were you when I bought my wife her New Car Saturday?
    Very nice putting them figures together like that.
    But battery life has been Excellent on the s10 plus.
    Drop off from 100%-99% takes about 4 minutes.
    I'll probably never look at that again.
