Noticed on battery health monitor battery seems to be getting rekt quickly

Should I charge slower or something ?

At this rate the battery is degrading 6%+ a month!

Pretty sure that's not accurate. I stopped using Accubattery a long time ago, I just use my phone like I normally would and I try not to worry about the battery degrading.
When I test it on my old Huawei mate 20 X it says the battery is only 74% effective and it was 101% when new

I am not sure accubattery is legit or not but I never take their recommendation to only charge between 30-80% because I need to use the phone capacity from 100% to whatever and I don't plug it in until 1% or sometimes dead which is supposedly the worst thing you can do lol

I guess New batteries will be cheap by the time I need one , haven't seen a tear down yet of this device to know if it's easy to replace it yet or not....

I just tested what it looks like for me after about 2 weeks.
I have almost the same result as you.

I really hope that's not correct, otherwise I'd be worse off now than with my Galaxy S20 Ultra (SD version) after a year. 😅

Yes, rather shocking results for a month , i don't mind changing battery every 6-8 months because I'm a heavy user ( but hopefully spare batteries are available? )

Once they get down to about 82% I usually order a new one and change it and it makes a big difference in the longevity of the devices

i have the phone since it launched ( received about 1 week or so after ) and in the app i have 98%.
I do believe the app is not accurate enough tough.
My mi9, after 2 years of intense usage still is at 90% :)

I hope your right , my battery seems to be degrading fast

Android doesn't directly monitor current draw I don't think so no app will be accurate.

Regardless Li's like frequent midrange power cycling 40-65% is ideal.
Avoid charging past 80% or discharging under 30% when possible to reduce battery stress.

Do not start charging a battery under 72°F, NEVER charge one near freezing.
An 85F start temperature is best.
Keep the temperature below 100F during the charge cycle.
Low temperature charging can cause Li plating which permanently degrades the cell.
Most fast charging controllers will not let fast charging engage if the start temperature is too low or high.

37-38 C temperature during charging is somehow difficult to keep with the 65-67w charging speed without any external help ( a fan for example )
But in theory you are right

I use a damp microfiber cloth and/or a fan.
If it gets much above 101F charging will likely terminate. That max will vary by device however it's counterproductive to charge at this high temperature.

    This application give me 5115 after 2 weeks.
    Dont' know if accurate or not.

    I don't think they know that battery in MI11 Ultra is made with new material "silicon-oxygen anode battery" as app probably thinks you have normal "li-pol battery" so when you charge it with high power, app think you killing your li-pol battery?..
