    Older batteries fair better at 97 % charge than 100 that way you do avoid overcooking most of the time

    Read somewhere that you should charge between 20% to 80% only for regular charging and we should charge to 100% occasionally.

    This is correct. Lithium ion batteries perform/last best when they are kept between 20 and 80% however, in real life situations, that ideal is rarely possible.

    While reading this post, I realized my classic battery was just dropped to 20%. So I have immediately charged it and now using key2

    Is it possible for a third party app to limit the charging to 80% on the device?

    Not sure a working app exists for the Passport. Would also like to know.

    There isn't one and it would not be a great idea anyway. It would be of marginal help to extend the life of a battery and is only one of a number of determinants to long battery life. The one absolute best thing you can do to prevent premature degradation of a lithium ion battery is to LIMIT the number of times that the charge sinks below 10%. My Passport OG bought in Oct 2014 now has 1062 cycle count and still checks out as good leaving me with about 40% at the end of each day. It has been and continues to be outstanding.

    I keep my 6t between 40% and 90% most of the time. I keep meaning to build a Tasker profile to let me know when it's at 80% but I just haven't gotten around to it.

    I think it would be great to have some kind of app that could limit the charging, unless the user knew that they needed a full charge.

    My iPhone XR generally is at about 60% - 70% at the end of the day, I 'd be fine if it would charge to 80% and then the next day I'd use it down to 40% - 50%. Few times that I'm going to need more, I'd know to do a full charge. If that would extend the battery life to five or six years it would be worth it. If all it would do is add a few days.... not so much.

    Not even close. It would only be a slight increase in charge cycles.

    Which is why no OEM bothers with such a feature.... quick charging is bad for a battery, but again it's probable a minimum amount over three or four years.

    ^^^^^Agreed and a 3rd party app in my view would just be fluff.
