    Starting from 0-1% until 100%.
    How long does yours take to fully charge? Mine does somehow feel much faster than my old 4S. 5S battery somehow only lasts 7-8hours since 7.1, while with 7.0.6 it almost always gave me 8-10hours usage.

    I typically just charge it overnight, but I guess the times that I have charged it in the middle of the day it took an hour and a half of so.

    Mine seems to charge roughly 1% per minute, so 0 to 100% would be about 100 minutes.

    Seems reasonable and it feels like that for me too.
    Is your usage also something around of what i get?

    Depends on usage. Usually I get 15-18 hours between charges.

    Imagine if the iPhone charged from 80 to 100 just as fast it does from 0 - 80. That'd knock off a good bit of time.

    Well i did not include standby time. I usually have it in standby for 48h and 7-8h usage. But as i said pre-7.1 i got much better battery life.

    It actually depends (Very sure)
    because i bought a new 3rd party charger a few months ago and it is working like wind!:D it is about 20 minutes to charge to 0-100
    But the charger gets really hot and sometimes burns out. D:
    But i think with the legit ones from apple are probably an hour or so

    If you feel that the battery is defective, take it to Apple and they will confirm it but it sounds to me like you are using you phone alot.

    There's usually rapid charge from 0% to about 80% and then a slower charger from 80% to 100%, so the timing between those two groups can and does differ.

    I use the iPad charger 100% of the time. This isn't a bad thing, for battery, or phone, is it?

    Not really. It's a higher amperage than the iPhone charger but I still use it. Apple lists as it being comparable so I don't worry too much.
    My iohone 4 did die when I was charging it with the iPad charger. It just wouldn't turn on anymore. Maybe it's cuz of the iPad an charger. Maybe not who knows.

    I have never check to see how long. I just plug it in before I go to bed and am ready to go the next day. Never done anything special like running down to 10%, just used it and do not worry about how long it take for it to charge.:rolleyes:

    I do not think there is anything you can do to greatly increase your battery life. You can harm the battery and shorten it's life but doing complete discharges.

    I really don't know. I put mine on the charger every night when I go to sleep and it's charged up when I awake.

    I haven't really timed it, but I do remember it being reasonably fast at about ~1.5 hours or less. Of course, it has a lot to do with the current charge prior to charging. I did notice, however, that it charges really fast to around ~95-99% and takes a lot longer to actually reach 100%
