Do you charge your iPhone 6 Plus or 6s Plus every night?

I've been using an iPhone for seven years, and charging it at night was pretty much standard procedure.

But since I got an iPhone 6 Plus, I no longer need to.

If I run low on battery, I plug it in for 15 minutes and get plenty of charge to last me awhile.

I basically just charge on the go whenever I need to these days.

With my iPhone 6 Plus I get a day and a half charge. So I usually charge my phone in the afternoon.

I don't care about charge cycles at all. I plug my phone in every night, and I also have a dock on my desk that props my phone up so I can see notifications and also charges it. Was $8 on eBay (MFI certified) and I mounted it to my desk.

I don't own the same iPhone for more than 2 years. Sometimes 1. So the battery is another persons headache.

Mine always end up needing to be replaced a few times throughout the period of time I own the phone, so battery longevity is a nonissue.

I do not charge my 6 plus every night. I never plug the charger/charging dock to the iPhone for a whole night. Never have, never will. Mostly charge every 1-2 days and only for a minor time frame.

Yep, charge it every single night since the 3G (aside from the 4, which was the only generation I didn't own.)

Like having a full battery in the morning and not having to charge during the day. It would be less of a hassle now to charge at work compared to before since I have my own office, but it doesn't feel necessary.

I have gone a few nights without charging my Apple Watch, but that's only when I've gone away for one night and know I'll be back the next day. I'm also lazy so I don't want to have to bring another cable or pry it out of the Spigen stand that it is currently housed in. In those situations, I just put it in power reserve mode overnight and I'll have plenty of battery left for the next day before I get home. Aside from that, the watch gets charged every night as well.

If I'm staying away from home then I don't freak out if I don't charge it overnight since I'll just use my 17W car charger on the go or my iPad charger.

If I'm at home I normally charge to 100% every night unless it is above 75%.

Since my iPhone is my alarm clock, it gets plugged in every night. I find that the battery lasts longer with a full charge. :p

I only have to charge my 6 Plus every 48 hours or after 8-10 hours of usage. I really hope my SIM Free 6S Plus will be the same way.

I put mine in the charger over night because it is also my clock and alarm, I've done this since my iPhone 3gs. Back then you had to do it to get through the night, but now with my 6s Plus I don't actually have to charge it every night, but it is a habit.
