    ive been reading some online articles about charging (lithium) batteries, for phones and/or gadgets

    some articles ive read suggests its best to fully discharge/empty the battery prior to recharging it to gain the battery's optimum performance/capacity

    some articles ive read says, by doing so, youre decreasing the battery's 500 charge life cycle

    on my old Samsung Z170, ive practiced the former for 7 years and up to now its battery is still functional
    now im doing the same for my L620, but im concerned that the latter scenario would happen

    so how much true is this? based on your experience? which one should i really follow?

    Technology on rechargeable batteries have drastically changed since. It is true that draining a battery before charging help improves battery life but you don't have to do it every single time. Draining your battery once every 3 months (or every month if you prefer) should be enough.

    Doing that doesn't improve battery life. All it does is to harm itself, and to recalibrate the end point and max point of the battery...
