Some lithium batteries do that indeed when they get old. Or overcharged.

Why does one need a chargie? Don't modern smartphones come with a limit of how much you want to charge them? Say to 80 or 90% max? So it may only CC charge but won't torture the battery for another hour with CV charging? You get less charge if that's OK with you and prolong the battery lifespan a little. Batteries last a little longer when charged not to max and not discharged to a minimum, a little.

I think I've seen it on some mobile devices long ago, maybe it was a laptop.

I would really like this too. I should be able to set my phone to slow charge most of the time, I rarely need a quick charge. Quick charging is great when I do need it but most of the time my phone gets over 8h solid on the charger every night, or at least every time it gets any charging.

While new ones take much less damage when being charged quickly even the best batteries take more damage the faster they are charged, down to a very low charge rate. Of course, device longevity is not a major concern for the manufactures. A phone designed to last even five years would be amazing.

That is a very classic example of overcharged. I think the reason old ones do it is because a bad charger tries to charge it up too much, because it cannot tell it is old enough that it cannot be charged that much anymore. Or getting too hot a some point.

When LiPOs were new I remember early LiPO chargers where you had to unplug the batteries in time or they would swell up until they sprayed fire. Always charge your batteries in a metal pan and avoid the smoke if one goes off. Those were not great chargers. Still, for RC airplanes LiPOs were a big enough upgrade to be worth the fire hazard. Crashes got more interesting too. LiPOs are as safe and reliable as they are due to fairly sophisticated battery state monitoring and protection circuits, and of course these circuits never have any bugs.

They also do that if discharged too fast, since that makes them get too hot.

I don't think so? Not my S10+ anyway...

Edit:
But I don't know if this is a good idea anyway. The reason to limit the max is to prevent the max from decreasing overtime, so after 1000 charges it is down to 80% instead of 70% or so... but if you are limited to 80% from day one you are functionally pre-damaging it to prevent damage. It would take some good data and math to figure out a reasonable limit where you actually had more battery life over the entire life of the phone. You would need to slowly raise the max capacity you charged to for it to work out. I am not even sure it would work out, it isn't like even only charging between 40 and 60% causes no damage. It is probably better to worry about the other end more, get worried about power at 25% instead of 15% and try to always keep it above 20%. That way if you need it unexpectedly you do have it while still treating the battery better than always running it down completely. The low end hurts a lot too, perhaps even more.

I don't charge it if it is still above 80%, at least much of the time, but as far as the battery chemistry is concerned they already aren't at true 100% capacity. The manufacture picks what 100% means, they usually push capacity a bit but not too much on the wear/capacity curve. Usually you are already in the flatter section of the curve when reducing max capacity so you don't gain that much. Of course, it does depend, usually isn't always.

An option similar to this (see attached) at least, perhaps? This is included by default in the stock ROM with the Exynos version of my S20 Ultra. Disabling Super Fast Charging will stop it from charging at 25w and down to Fast Charging at 15w (9V/1.67A). Disabling Fast Charging will drop it down from that 15w to 10w (5V/2A).

Sadly, those options aren't common. They are a step in the right direction, but not exactly what I'm asking for.

Not exactly. As a battery ages, its internal resistance increases. As internal resistance increases, heat generation during charge/discharge is also increased, as is voltage drop under load. This is why the iPhones started limiting power(slowing down) as they age; once the batteries got too old they couldn't provide enough power without the voltage tanking, even when "fully charged". Anyone who's used an Android phone and had it suddenly shut off at 50% when they fire up a game has experienced the effects of voltage drop from high IR.

Slowing the aging process allows the batteries to maintain a lower internal resistance and this allows the phone to perform like-new for longer as well. It isn't just about run-time. After a year, the battery that's been charged to 85% it's whole life may be far more useful both in terms of run time and peak-load voltage, depending on the environment and usage habits of the owner.

Phone manufacturers don't always make the best choice for everyone. I'd like it if at least two options were given to users— a normal mode(what we have now) and a "conservative" mode, that limits both charge capacity and current to prolong battery life.

People who buy a new phone every year can live fast with the normal mode, while people like me who upgrade every 2 or 3 years could choose the "conservative" mode.

The battery circuitry should be able to handle that unless the current draw is actually over the max, or it has a bug. I think the benefits of charging to a lower voltage is pretty low with modern cells, there is a benefit but other aspects matter as much or more. For example, average temperature over the life of the cell is going to be more significant.

The option is good to have anyway, if you really don't need the full capacity it is definitely better for the cell(s) with no downside. Super useful if you usually use a wireless charger or similar 'always plugged in'. However, if it causes you to go to 10% charged instead of 30% by the end of the day it might be worse to charge to 80% instead of 100%.

The S10+ has a 36% bigger battery; even with the same charger it would take significantly longer to charge.
That said, my $280 Xiaomi MI9T came with an 18w QC3 unit and it charges plenty quick for me. The 3 extra watts make a difference.

point is we've been using 25 watts since 2015? and it's 2020.

In the last year or two the push has been for high battery capacity. We were in the 3000mah range for a while and now we are seeing 5000mah+ batteries hit. Generally, higher capacity battery chemistries carry the penalty of higher internal resistance, which limits charge/discharge current. It's possible these new high density batteries can't handle the 25w chargers as well as the older batteries. That might be why some devices are switching to 2-cell batteries.
