Huh? Its a lithium battery...those old rules dont apply. A little quick google on lithium batteries will explain this.
More than likely slow charges are due to a slow charge plug/cable...many prior posts on the charger.

Old rules by what standard? Anytime using lithium type of battry is best not to run it down to 0%. I guess you don't have much experence with them besides your phone. I use them everday for my hobby. Sure you can run them down to 0% if you like replacing them quicker.
