Best way to maximise Z5 battery life?

I have read totally conflicting views on this on the internet, so would really like to know if anyone here knows the right answer. Some people say that to maximise battery life you should always let the battery drain completely and then always charge to 100%. But others say never let it drain totally, and never fully charge it!

Does anyone know which is right?

Thanks

Never ever let your battery drain.
Charging your phone to 100% doesnt hurt
But the sweet spot would between 80-90%. This helps to preserve battery life in the lobg run.

@AliWonder also don't worry about overcharging your battery if you leave it plugged in....it has a 'cut off' inbuilt so wont allow any damage to occur :smileysmileywink:
