Dunno why the moderator closed my other thread. I think watching anime and using the crunchyroll app is mainly what this site is about.

Anyhow I often use the crunchyroll application at work until my phone is out of battery(it's risky) since communication is vital for my occuptation tomorrow I will have a long 13 hours shift which sometimes occur on my schedule. Therefore I brought a cell phone battery bank specifically for the use of the crunchyroll application. Now Ive never used a cell phone battery bank thing. Do I plug my phone to it from the start of my shift? or when it gives me the low on battery warning? I could use more insight on this from other crunchyroll APP users thank you.


Please don't close my thread, this is relating to my work as if it's not already frustrating that my phone keeps running out of power.

I'll just sneak an answer in before it gets closed. As far as Lithium-Ion batteries go, their lifespan is measured in number of charges, meaning that the battery can only be recharged a certain number of times before it begins to lose its ability to hold that charge. Obviously this is not an exact number. Because of this behavior it is recommended that you allow your battery to 'completely' discharge before charging it again. I put the completely in quotes because of intrinsic properties of a Lithium-Ion battery as well as hardware limiters prevent it from even getting close to a complete discharge, but for all intents and purposes complete will mean what the phone judges as dead. Thus, to get the best life out of your battery allow it to either die, or get really really low before you begin to charge it again and once it is fully charged unplug it. Don't let it sit fully charged but still 'charging' as it will degrade the battery over time.

Basically use your phone without the battery pack until your phone gets low then plug it in. I would say wait until 5% but I am unsure if the amount of power it provides can outweigh the consumption of the phone. Waiting until 15% should work, but if it continues to decrease even after you plug it in, just let it charge a bit to give you a bigger buffer or if you have the time, allow it to fully charge and then detach the battery pack.

I think the crunchyroll should make a way where we cam access the forums on a app or at least on the ipad
