    The opposite is actually true. A lithium ion battery should rarely be allowed to drain below 20% and letting them get as low as 0% is very bad for battery life with these modern li-ions. Ideally they should be kept between 40% and 70% to maximize their lifespan. The full charge from 0% to 100% myth dates back to nickel-cadmium (ni-cad) batteries which actually do work best that way. Given that nickel-metal-hydride (nimh) came after that and also don’t do well when drained to 0%, it is an extremely outdated myth. Even lead acid and new lithium-ion-polymer batteries prefer staying between 40%-70%.
