“Charging a Battery Too Long Can Harm It”
This is a classic myth with a lot of staying power, but we’re here to calm your mind. Many years ago, when the first lithium-ion batteries entered the consumer market, overcharging could cause problems with wearing batteries out. But that problem has long been solved. Today’s mobile device batteries come with software that automatically prevents the battery from taking in too much charge. That means you can leave your phone charging overnight, sitting on a charging pad, etc., without worrying about any long-term effects.
