You can go ahead and charge it to 100%. Maintain it by topping it off periodically. Try to avoid a complete discharge, but if this does occur, simply recharge at your earliest convenience. Each drain reduces the maximum capacity of the battery a little bit.

There are many variables that effect battery life, aside from the battery itself, it can seem quite overwhelming. Here is a table with some good information. The last column, Lithium-ion, is the battery type commonly used in cell phones and tablets. Please consult the documentation that came with your device to confirm this is indeed the case.
Frequently
asked question Lead acid
(Sealed, flooded) Nickel-based
(NiCd and NiMH) Lithium-ion
(Li-ion, polymer) How should I prepare a new battery? Battery comes fully charged. Apply topping charge Charge 14-16h. Priming may be needed Apply a topping before use. No priming needed Can I damage
a battery with incorrect use? Yes, do not store partially charged, keep fully charged Battery is robust and the performance will improve with use Keep some charge. Low charge can turn off protection circuit Do I need to apply a full charge? Yes, partial charge causes sulfation, Partial charge is fine Partial charge better than a full charge Can I disrupt a charge cycle? Yes, partial charge causes no harm Interruptions can cause heat buildup Partial charge
causes no harm Should I use up
all battery energy before charging? No, deep discharge wears battery down. Charge more often Apply scheduled discharges only to prevent memory Deep discharge wears the battery down Do I have to worry about "memory"? No, there is no memory Discharge NiCd every 1-3 months No memory How do I calibrate a "smart" battery? Not applicable Apply discharge/charge when the fuel gauge gets inaccurate. Repeat every 1-3 months Can I charge with the device on? Some UPS systems simultaneous charge and deliver current. It's best to turn the device off during charge; parasitic load can alter full-charge detection and overcharge battery or cause mini-cycles Must I remove the battery when full? Depends on charger; needs correct float V Remove after a few days in charger Not necessary; charger turns off How do I store
my battery? Keep cells above 2.10V, charge
every 6 months Store in cool place;
a total discharge causes no harm Store in cool place partially charged, do not fully drain Is the battery allowed to heat up during charge? Battery may get lukewarm towards the end of charge Battery gets warm but must cool down on ready Battery may get lukewarm towards the end of charge How do I charge when cold? Slow charge (0.1): 0-45°C (32-113°F)
Fast charge (0.5-1C): 5-45°C (41-113°F) Do not charge
below freezing Can I charge at hot temperatures? Above 25°C, lower threshold by 3mV/°C Battery will not fully charge when hot Do not charge
above 50°C (122°F) What should I know about chargers? Charger should float at 2.25-2.30V/cell when ready Battery should not get too hot; should include temp sensor Battery must stay cool; no trickle charge when ready Table 1: Best charging methods. Strenuous demands cannot always be prevented.

There's no harm in keeping it on charge all the time. Unlike older rechargeables, newer Li-ion batteries don't need to be broken in by running them down and then recharging.

My tablet will not power on & shows no signs of charging


Lithium ION batteries are usually rechargeable. The use mode for these batteries is that there are a set number of recharges that equate to the life of the battery. Usually that life is approximately 1,000 charges.
If you use your battery to 50% then recharge, you can do this ~2,000 times. As the life of the battery is used up, the maximum charge lessens which means where you may have had 8 hours of play time when the battery was new, you will only have 6 hours as the battery life is used up.
In order for a Lithium ION battery to recharge there must be at least a small amount of charge left as a "seed" for that recharge. If you drain a L-ION battery down to zero, it may never recharge again or the max charge will be reduced to an insignificant amount of the original full charge. eg instead of 8 hours you may only get 15 minutes, or 5 minutes, or no minutes.
You are much better off recharging when 50% depleted than using it up til your product stops.
L-ION batteries cannot be repaired only replaced. Most cheap products using L-ION batteries cannot have their batteries replaced.

Change battery in irulu 10.0 tablet


Hello Sonny,

These tablets have a "life long" battery, meaning that it is not user replacable... Looks like it is time to get a new tablet.

Best regards,

After purchasing this product, how long do you have to let it charge before you can turn it on to use it?


First lesson here in charging 101: read your info on what u got. In most of them it tells you to turn it on and use it until the item you got dies then you charge it, you can turn it on if u want to see it charging but don't play on it. An it's best to do when you can watch it, so charging it overnight is NOT good, because it will be done before you wake and over charging is not good. It makes the battery weak so holding a charge gets less and less over time. Never leave your cord in the wall when it's not charging your item. Power from the wall is still running through it and slowly frying it. Thats why people go thought many cords for one item. The reason for the first battery kill and then a full charge is a stronger battery life. It gives your battery about (but don't hold me to it) a 15% increase on life. So back to your question. It depends on the item and battery life it has when u pull it from the box. In most cases battery is about half full. Plus charging from a outlet lets say to a car charging is better and faster for your item. When most battery's are being made and tested in factory's it is a outlet that is being used. So most info on timing a charge is based on info gathered From tests done from a outlet

Why is the WiFi in my rca tablet killing my battery to fast


Wifi always drains battery life to some extent or another.. Best solution is to turn off wifi when not in use or needed, and or keep your device plugged in during extensive use.. try to figure out your battery life while using wifi, and also kill/turn off any unnecessary background apps like gps, etc.. you can also extend your battery life by keeping your back light and lock screens to turn down and set to automatically turn off after a min or so of non use.. hope this helps..

Tabeo tablet battery not charging will work if plugged in


Hi! Hope this may serve as a hint. When power problem dooms to any electronic device needing battery operation we sometimes least assume that the battery life is near to its end. I mean its charging life has come to end. However, you can sometimes recycle it's life cycle by discharging fully and recharging fully without using it. Battery utility softwares can help monitor its life but cannot revive at all. Charging also using fast charger and or slow charger can help reactivate the battery cells. I personally experience, a gadget of mine its charging life is almost come to end and when I accidentally plug it on my laptop with 3.0 USB offline charging capability it somehow raise its life but not as good as it is. If the above doesn't work at all, it's time to change the battery pack. Goodluck!

My battery is not lasting long enough and charging fast enough


unfortunately this is a budget tablet and there are a lot of people with complaints with battery life on them. the solutions available is try another charger unless you use the USB cable to charge it, try sourcing another battery, or if it is under warranty send it back and try for a refund and get a different brand like the nexus 7 inch tab from google.
sorry there not the best solutions.

Why so long when i'm charging my lenovo a1-07 ideapad


Frequent Charging Shortens Battery Life Frequent charging shortens the life span of a Lithium ion battery. Batteries should be charged only after they expend all their power. b> Switching Batteries Switching batteries helps preserve battery life: If a cell phone or computer user puts in a spare battery while separately charging the primary Lithium ion battery, that helps extend the life of both batteries. b> Removing Batteries Most laptops charge the battery when a user plugs in the AC adapter. Users can adjust this setting by changing the power options. Windows places this option in the Control Panel, while the Gnome Linux desktop places power options under "Administrative Tools". Cell phones incorporate their own power-saving features that the user usually cannot control. b> When to Replace a Lithium Ion Battery If a laptop battery does not hold a charge for more than a few minutes, a user must replace the Lithium ion battery if he wants to use the computer without an AC adapter. Other Ways to Extend Battery Life Storing a battery in a cool, dry environment causes a lithium-ion battery to last a little longer and reduces the frequency of needed battery replacements. Hope this helps.

How to fix not working touchscreen? Do i have to replace it?


The Samsung Q1 is a hybrid, ultra-mobile, touch-screen device that is basically a very small tablet PC. It features a 7-inch screen, weighs a mere 1.7 lbs., features a Windows operating system, doesn't have a built-in keyboard, and comes in a variety of configurations. The Samsung Q1 doesn't offer outstanding battery life, but you can make some moves to boost your computing time.

Dim the Screen

Dim the screen brightness. Four programmable application-launch buttons occupy the right edge of the Q1. One of these, the menu button, calls up frequently-used controls, including screen brightness. Reduce the screen brightness as much as you can, as it's one of the best ways to extend battery life.
Close Power-hogging Apps

Close applications and browser windows when you're done with them. Too many open programs drain the battery. Beware power-hogging apps. Watching a video or listening to music on your Q1 drains your battery life much faster than just using Microsoft Word or checking email. Turn off the Wi-fi networking when not in use. The built-in Wi-fi searches for a network when you're not connected, which drains battery life.

Properly Caring for and Feeding a Battery

Unplug the Samsung Q1 after the battery is fully charged. Leaving your Q1 plugged in 24/7 leads to some discharge from the battery. Consider buying a bigger battery. A 3-cell battery comes with most configurations of the Q1, but you can also buy a 6-cell battery to double the battery life.

Room Temperature is Best

Don't expose the Q1 to harsh conditions. Keeping the device in a blazing hot car in direct sunlight harms your battery life. If you use your Q1 in conditions above 95 degrees Fahrenheit, you can permanently damage the battery. Cold conditions don't harm the battery in the same way, but if you leave the Q1 in the cold, let it warm to room temperature before you use it.

I hope you find it very helpful. Best regards.
