doing it all wrong

at least i didnt bite into my iphone battery like
that guy did on the internet

several months ago i got tired of dealing with a reading light
whenever i found one that worked great
the bulb would burn out
it was always too expensive to replace
i just bought another one

we had a bunch of those ittybitty lights laying around
with no bulbs that worked
whose ittybitty wires just broke inside
i guess it couldnt hold up to all that tossing and turning
i did while i read at night
from hours of sleeping on it

one night
while watching nashville
there one of the daughters
in one scene
was holding her phone in her hand
reading her book
i thought
thats the answer
my iphone

i tried it
the lights bright enough
it doesnt seem to burn out
in the morning when you wake up
there is the phone
if you are lucky its on the floor
many times i feel this warm lump under my back
i reach under
theres my iphone

sometimes the cord would be attached as it needed
to be charged
so i would read while it was being charged
the wire would be all coiled up under me
when i woke the next morning

i read this article about charging your iphone correctly

dont let it go down to zero
it doesnt do well if you do that
it loses some of its capacity

dont charge it overnight and leave it on at 100%
it degrades itself some
not as bad as the old ones

the ideal spot is 40-80%

dont store your phone at 100%
ideal is 50%

dont sleep on your phone
dont charge it while taking a bath
dont bite into the battery

some things like the last two
seems to be obvious
you would think

so i woke up this morning
my book on the floor
my cellphone charged at 100%
lying underneath my back

i have something to learn from my readings
plus i notice i need another layer of duct tape on my wire
