    I have a 4s with 5.0.1. I plug up my phone to the wall to charge every night before I go to bed. In the morning, 6+ hours later, my phone is not at 100%. Usually it is somewhere between 92-95%. I understand that the phone charges up to 100% and then stops charging in order to prevent the battery from wearing out but shouldn't the charge start back up once it drops from 100%? What I end up having to do every morning is unplug my phone and then plug it back in in order for it to be fully charged when I leave for work. I went to the Apple store last night and one of the employees told me the fix for this was in 5.0.1 so I updated last night before I went to sleep. It didn't help. Anyone know if there is a fix for this? I guess it is not so much of a problem as it is an annoyance but it would be nice to rid myself of it.

    Thanks for the help!

    I've been running into this as well. It's really not a big deal though. If it bothers you enough you can ask Apple to replace the phone.

    I believe it's just a batt calibration issue -
    Others have simply turned off the batt % meter so they don't get unnecessarily aggrevated -

    Have you let your phone drain all the way down till it turns off? Try this, then plug it in and let it charge to 100% (assuming it will go that far) and keep it plugged in for 20-30 mins after it hits 100%.

    See if this helps to "recalibrate" the battery.

    Try charging using your receptacle in your bathroom. I know it sounds weird but most bathrooms have gfci receptacles. Could be voltage regulation problems with the current outlet you are using.
