    Best way to keep battery good?

    Would you say it is best to let battery empty or go to where it says connect your charger? Or does it not matter when and does it matter if it is over charged

    That's a pretty good summary, far more accurate than most advice.
    But it still provides some bad info:

    The phone power controller won't let you discharge below the damage level, or even especially close.

    The charge controller is built into the phone so there is no way a car adapter will do damage. It would have to a stand-alone charger that took a removed battery, and be especially badly designed to do that. (I get unreasonably unset when I see this claim repeated with other car adapters. Of course they won't overcharge your battery! But not because any circuitry that they have. It's because the device controls the battery charge.)

    My battery approach is simple: I bought a cheap extra battery (counterfeit? probably yes) for everyday use. I keep the original as a spare for when I need the best capacity. Considering the extra battery is just a few dollars online and is trivially swapped, it's not worth being paranoid about battery life. Unlike $200-$300 laptop batteries, or batteries that require breaking the phone's seal to replace.
