    Once a day, I guess that turns out once every 24 hours, that's not quite accurate. I leave it plugged in while I work, so it stays juiced up while I work

    I charge mine once a day, during the night... It usually has 40-50% charge left...

    I have always plugged my phone in before bed and unplugged when I get up. The 6 has approx 50 to 60% remaining when plugged in.

    Same here - I charge it every night and don't really pay much attention to the charge left

    I charge my 6+ every single night, and it is usually at 1-15% at bedtime. I used to charge my iPhone 5 twice a day, sometimes three times.

    It obviously depends how much use it gets through the day.

    I normally leave it charging overnight but on some days it's almost out of juice by mid afternoon so it needs an extra charge.

    Just once a day now with the 6+. Charge it to 100% overnight and it lasts all day.

    I charge my iPhone 6 Plus when it reached 20%. My usage is around 3 - 4 days from 100 to 20%.

    I ONLY ever charge my iPhone 6, when the battery falls below 20% ;)

    I have a Belkin dock on my nightstand and my 6+ stays plugged in overnight.

    I just charge mine while sleeping. When I get up, I have full power.

    Once a day, but I usually charge it when I am driving home from work so like 1.5 times per day :)

    The only reason I charge it when driving is for "hey siri"

    I used to charge my 5s everyday, but my 6+ I charge every other day.

    I charge mine every night whether it needs it or not. It is usually down to around 50%ish by night time.

    I charge my iPhone 6 every night, just as I have all my previous iPhones. This is mainly because I use it as my alarm clock, and the app that I use would eat up the battery during the night.

    I will agree that actual charging will vary according to usage. I have had to charge it during the day sometimes when it got extra heavy usage.

    Every night when I sleep. On long car rides just for the hell of it. And if I stay late at work I usually need to plug it in towards the end of the day.

    I make sure the phone is at 100% before I leave house or work (no matter what time of the day or day of the week).

    I charge my 6 Plus overnight, I think the battery is usually at about 40%.

    I had to charge my iPhone 5 in the afternoon as well - I love the battery life of the 6 Plus!

    With the iPhone 5s and 6, 1-2x a day depending on usage. I usually keep an Anker Astro Mini in my purse/pocket for portable charging. The 6+, I only needed to charge once every 1-3 days. Too bad the 6+ was just too darned unwieldy for me. I really loved the battery life on that thing.

    Quick question: Would it be better of for the battery if I leave my phone charged for 8 hours at work or should I just charge it at home overnight? I don't have issues of running out of juice but rather concerned about the lifespan of the battery and/or conditioning.
