I didn't know you could determine the battery cycle counts for any iPhones. Enlighten us how please.

I've always said I don't care about a larger battery on the plus but I guess I burn through enough charge cycles that this isn't really true. I'll be lucky to get two years out of the phone at this rate. Battery cases are an option.

Wouldn't it also matter how long the phone has been in use?

Yes of course, forgot to add that bit.

Yeah I could do that. Aren't they about $80? Weighing the pros and cons of an external pack. I could get one of those for around $50. Decisions haha.
