That's not how it works at all.

can you save me the trouble of digesting all of that and tell us how it does work? :D

Battery cycles are not directly proportional to the increase in battery charge percent. Charge above 80% and discharge below 20% cause disproportionate battery wear or "cycles", if you think of it that way. Short charge cycles do not cause disproportionate wear. For optimal life, lithium batteries should live between 40-80% of their capacity as much as possible.

so when you charge up can you tell it to stop at 80%?

Huh. So I wonder if my phone charging system considers that, and "100%" doesn't represent all the battery can hold, or if it's truly a bad idea to keep charging my phone to the top.

Given the nature of the game, i wouldn't be surprised if 100% was more like 120% overcooked.

Not unless your phone is rooted. There are apps like accubattery that will alert you, though.

I've read that 100 percent stated is usually something like 95 percent actual capacity.

Temperature during charging also has a huge effect on battery life.

I find that the number of cycles has a direct correlation to when I discharge.  If I only cycle to 80% it helps a little, but I still discharge fully.
