    Hello! Apple recommends that you drain the battery till it dies, then plug it back in and let it charge back to 100%. But it is certainly your choice!

    Hope this helped!

  • 1: Keep your batteries at room temperature


    2: Think about getting a high-capacity lithium-ion battery, rather than carrying a spare


    3: Allow partial discharges and avoid full ones (usually)

    Unlike NiCad batteries, lithium-ion batteries do not have a charge memory. That means deep-discharge cycles are not required. In fact, it's better for the battery to use partial-discharge cycles.


    4: Avoid completely discharging lithium-ion batteries



    Also, for safety reasons, do not recharge deeply discharged lithium-ion batteries if they have been stored in that condition for several months.
    5: For extended storage, discharge a lithium-ion battery to about 40 percent and store it in a cool place
