    I'm thinking of changing my charging schedules for the weekdays. Charge my phone when I get out of the house and it should be finished before lunch.
    This way im not panicking about my battery life I'm actually hapoier about it.

    What are your thoughts in this?

    Why do you worry about your battery? Just charge it when you go to bed. Then it lasts all day anyway. Easy.

    I'm not worried about the battery (much); its just that I want to use my phone in the morning and not have It tied to a charger because my phone would be 30 percent when I wake up any way so it's easier to charge on my way to school without having it tied to the wall in the morning if I wanna use it.

    Do you not have a side table and a plug socket next to your bed to simply stick on charge whilst you sleep and unplug it when you get up ??? :confused::confused::confused:

    Agreed. What suits you - still find it a very strange subject...

    Oh,I do. But I want to read in the morning and that drains the battery.

    That's why I'd rather charge on my way to school.

    So you charge it at night. In the morning, unplug it and read. Use it all day, then charge as you sleep. Did I miss something?

    I'm usually pretty paranoid with my battery life, that's mainly why.

    I charge my 5s at night and it usually last me throughout the day. Although lately it has been needing a second charge in the afternoon. I'm not sure it its iOS 8.1.1 or maybe an app like Facebook.

    *edit* I also did the same thing with my HTC One(M7), but it ALWAYS needed the midday extra charge.

    I do exactly that.
    My commute is slightly over an hour and usually have Pandora running all the way in.

    It ensures I have a full battery for the 10 to13 hour work day.

    I charge my phone while at work, and they will carry me through the night when I get home, and my commute back to the office.

    I plug mine in when I get in bed and unplug it after I'm done getting ready in the morning. Then I plug it in every time I'm in my car. Lasts all day that way. Easily.

    I tend to charge at work and not overnight.

    I do a quick 20-30 minute charge in the morning while getting ready for work, but that is usually the only time I charge at home during the week.

    Charge over night. Use in the morning and top up when your on your commute. It won't harm the battery to do top up charges.
