Recently I got some bad advice from an Apple Genius at the Apple Store near the Plaza Hotel in Manhattan. He advised me that I should let my battery run down to 5% or lower as often as possible in order to maximize the battery life. This is not the way to get the most out of your iPhone's lithium battery.
A Popular Science article recommends letting the battery life go down to only about 50% per cent before recharging and avoiding recharging fully. "Shallow discharges and recharges are better than full ones, because they put less stress on the battery, so it lasts longer."
Battery University provides detailed research into this issue. "If at all possible, avoid full discharges and charge the battery more often between uses." The lower the discharge percentage, the higher the number of discharge cycles.
