    Greetings to all. First of all I'd like to say, that the Classic works like a charm and is probably the best phone I've had so far. Now to the question..

    Which powerbank do you use with your BB? I would like to feed the bat in more frequent bursts instead of doing one 70% charge. Would any of you recommend a decent powerbank that would not degrade the performance of my battery? Thank you

    P.S. Do you use the "battery saver mode" often? My friend told me that it completely ruined the battery on his device(he has an Android phone).

    Normal charger that comes with the Classic works abdolutely fine, and I've had absolutely no noticeable battery deterioration issues at all since owning the device from release in December. I don't use any form of 'powerbank' and never have done.

    Thanks for your answer. I meant that I would like to charge on the go to prevent from draining the battery too much

    There's no point in doing that and it's probably not a good idea.
    Also, power saver won't damage your phone

    Actually, battery makers advise that we top off these devices often. I just read a couple articles from a scientific publication that I can't locate in my browser history ATM. It is ideal to top off batteries when they are between 20 and 80%. As we all know, all batteries have a certain finite of number of times they can be rejuvenated. Most are about 550 cycles from 0 to 100%, equate to roughly 2 years. Batteries should not be depleted to 0. I do not charge my phones overnight any more. Every other day, when my Passport, IP6+, and Note Edge drop to 35% or so, I charge them back to 100% and unplug then. Studies show that leaving them connected to electricity at 100% is not harmful, but doesn't do any good either.

    I'm using smart chargers to eliminate overcharging. Since I can't replace the battery, I need to take very good care of this one. I'm using RAVPower smart bricks. I have one next to the bed and one in the living room.
