Correct - I was mistaken, they'll do it whether your battery is weak or not..

It's not just the number of cycles, useful lifespan of Lithium-based batteries is significantly reduced by leaving in a less-than-full charge state, even for a few hours.

'07 FZ1 set up for fun
(both in the *faster* blue)

Which would you prefer?

There are a number of factors that affect the life of lithium ion (carbon/cobalt) batteries, which is the type normally used in mobile phones, laptops, etc (but not for motorcycle lithium batteries).

If you have some spare time, here is a link:

A lion battery under a benign charging regime would last for around 500 charge/discharge cycles but this would be much reduced in typical mobile phones, because mobile phones hit the battery with a severe charging regime (high charge voltage and low discharge voltage) in order to give as-high-as possible battery duration.

The best battery life obtainable, on a mobile phone, would be to only charge to 75% of capacity and only discharge to 25% of capacity (as indicated by the mobile phone's gas-gauge that is).

A low temperature, around 10 degrees Centigrade (50F), is also good for long battery life and low self discharge.

I took my iPhone 6 in to have the battery replaced. They tested it and the results were that the battery was still in excellent condition. The store was out of stock of the batteries, given the run on them lately, and they will notify me when new stock is in. The $29 deal is good all during 2018. It's my choice to have the battery replaced now or wait until later in the year.

I also have a iPhone 5 with a UK phone number which I use when traveling there. The $29 replacement battery deal doesn't apply to anything older than a 6, so the cost is $79 I think. I should have had the genius test that phone but I didn't.

If you can't change your people, change your people.
