    Is it best to run down the Lumia 521 battery before re-charging?

    I ask this because with the Kindle Fire, they say it is better for the battery to run it all the way down before recharging. Does this also apply to cell phones?

    Thanks so much !

    Some say yes some say no...

    The lithium ion batteries are supposed to be "non-memory effect" and hold the charge longer.

    My opinion let the battery drop into the 10% range once a week or so for better battery health.
    A great feature of the 521 is that the BL5J batteries are pretty cheap and of course replaceable.

    My two cents is to charge whenever you feel like it, but fully discharge and charge monthly.

    is there a difference between BL-5j vs BL-5"J"?
    I don't see why there would be, if they look the same, its probably just a minor typing difference.
