wireless charging question(s)

As I mentioned in the ATT charger deal thread, this is my first time using a wireless charger for my phone (SE2020). I'm the type who usually waits to charge the phone until it gets to less that 50%, since it always seemed to me that "topping it off" might not be good for the battery. But I still see conflicting opinions about that.

Now that I have the wireless charging pad, I'm considering just dropping the phone on there every night at bedtime, regardless of what percentage of charge remains. That certainly seems to be the eaiest method of charging. Any harm in doing that in terms of long-term battery life? FWIW, Battery health is showing 95%.

Thanks.

Do you have your phone set up to optimize charging? Mine won't charge to full until around the time I'll be needing it. It's a setting in Battery Health.

Optimize Battery Charging is toggled On.

I guess I'm not going to worry about it and just toss it on the charger at bedtime. Thanks.

Worst case scenario you have to pay $50 for a new battery 4 years from now.

One or maybe two of these pads will go to someone with an SE2020.

What charger are you using with the pad?

I have some 5W Apple cubes that could be repurposed.

I had a spare 9W charger from an old Kindle Fire tablet that I traded in, so I'm using that. And I still have the 5W charger from an even older Kindle Fire I traded in, but I haven't tried that one yet. I also hooked it up to this thing I had lying around, just to see if it worked...and it did. I'm embarrassed to admit I don't know what those freakin' numbers mean on it. I also have a 10W dual USB port charger not doing anything right now, and a 12W adapter that I've been using for the phone until now. So I think I'm covered. smiling smiley

And by that time, I may actually be ready for a new phone. smiling smiley

That picture is a 10 watt adapter. Output: 5.0 (V)olts times 2.0 (A)mps equals 10 watts.

I don't think its compatible. Look at that date code!
