    I have a speck pixelskin hd case for my 4s and I find it quite a chore removing the case whenever I decide to charge the phone. Is it advisable to leave the case on while charging the phone or will this affect the battery in the long run.

    Thanx for any comments

    Really, the only danger I see is that heat from the iPhone getting energy will somehow explode the iPhone because the heat won't be able to escape from the case. SO UNLIKELY :)

    There is absolutely no need to remove the case in order to charge the phone. I don't know where people come up with some of this stuff.

    The manufacturer: http://www.apple.com/batteries/iphone.html

    From the link:

    Let It Breathe

    Charging your iPhone while in certain carrying cases may generate excess heat, which can affect battery capacity. If you notice that your iPhone gets hot when you charge it, take it out of its case first.
