    How long does your 7 take to charge from dead to 100%? I've seen videos and people complaining that it takes 2+ hours and saying that it takes ages but mine charges super fast but that is with the iPad charger and not the iPhone one or sometimes with the Anker fast charge so is it only the Apple iPhone charger that takes an age to charge? My battery isn't amazing but because it charges so quickly it's easy to just charge it back up from 40% or so or give it a burst of charge with the fast charger.

    Also, does anyone know the power of the Smart Battery case and how quick that charges the phone? (I'm in the minority who doesn't actually think it's that ugly!)

    how long does it takes to make the battery low? It may charge superfast, but if doesn't support the level all these makes no sense...

    I just plug it into the charger before I go to bed and not worry about it. Never had any of my iPhone's batteries at "dead".

    About 6 hours usage of Bluetooth streaming and a lot of Pokemon Go which is a battery killer. And loses 1% every 3-4 mins on data and every 5-6 mins on wifi which is about normal?

    And had my battery looked at over diagnostics and it was all fine.

    If you are getting 6 hours of usage on the 7, that is completely normal.

    How long does it take to fully charge the battery with the ipad charger?

    I haven't timed it exactly but a LOT less than 2 hours. Maybe an hour or just over. I ususally charge from 20% or more or if I'm in work and on 30% give it some charge before leaving as I walk home which is why I think the smart battery case would be idea for me.
