    Mm...am using standard Apple charger. No fast charger. Not sure if that is a factor. However, my 8 month usage is light to moderate. For videos, I normally just use Youtube. No Netflix. The small screen is just not apt for long video watching. I usually recharge once I reach 20 to 50% and always remove the phone from the charger once I reach 95 to 100%. I do use the car charger when I am driving and when using Waze (huge battery hog).

    To prolong the lifespan of lithium ion batteries you must never expose it to extreme temperatures. Do not deplete it’s charge, as much as possible try to charge your battery when it hits 20%. Do not charge it to 100% as well, charge it to around 80%. You will extend the lifespan of your battery but is it worth the hassle????

    Fast charging is a factor also for the deteriorating battery health. Mine is under heavy usage (bluetooth on all the time for apple watch, and LTE on) :(

    Mine's @ 90%. Mixed charging. I don't actually have a set schedule for charging, as long as there's a plug, I usually plug it in, or lay it on a wireless charger to preserve the charge. Battery life is not what it used to be and I can tell. If I go a day without charging, I'll be left with 20% by 5PM where previously I could get 30% easy.

    *Apple Watch & AirPods almost always connected*

    18W Fast Charger for travels & when needed.
    5W Wireless charging when on night stand/work desk (2 units)
    7.5W Honda Carplay unit when on the road.

    Fast charger may be the main culprit for faster degradation, if you can tolerate the speed, the 5W charger is the way to go to preserve battery health, or at least slow down the process.

    I'm actually trying to beat the clock and have it around 80% by december just so the discounted battery replacement is well worth it.
