    I woke up this morning. My iPhone 5 was on and in red, it wasn't plugged in. I went to the kitchen, plugged in, fixed my breakfast and on my way out is was fully charged and it has been like that until noon.

    I had the battery replaced a few months ago because the original was really bad. But... could it be some software update?

    Depends on which iPhone. My 6+ takes over 3 hours to fully charge

    Could be something with the battery meter too.

    If it's still on 100% there's probably something wrong with the battery meter. My older iPhone 5 and 4 would occasionally have this problem, it stayed on 100% and then would die later on but the meter wouldn't change. You've probably already tried but give it a restart, might show it's true reading.

    This happened to me back when I had an iphone 3G. After it was fully charged. It stayed 100% from 8 to 3 pm and I felt something isn't right. I turned off the phone and turned it back on and it was at around 60% when I rebooted. So it seemed like it was a glitch.

    Different amount of current that can be used to charge one vs. the other?

    The larger the battery, the more current it can accept. The rMB does charge very fast, but it still really takes about 2 hours to get 100% charged as it still tapers after 80%. I see about 20-80% in 1 hr which is awesome.
