    Hi, this is the first iPhone I have ever had. My previous phone was a Blackberry Torch. My problem and concern here is regarding the iPhone 5. I have the iPhone 5 and accidentally left it plugged into the charger all night. My main concern here is that will hurt my iPhone 5's battery life. From experience from my Blackberry Torch, Laptop, iPod Touch 1st Gen... They all lost battery life from being left on the charger all night. In a nutshell my question is... is my iPhone 5's battery overcharged and will I lose battery life from overcharging it? Thanks :)

    No.

    I don't want to sound condescending (and I'm sure you just want to make sure it's safe) but you'd think that with all the advances in technology crammed into phones they'd be able to figure out when a battery is fully charged and stop charging, right?

    The answer is yes.

    So my iPhone 5 will not lose battery life nor is my battery damaged from charging it for about 9 hours even though it reached 100%? :confused:

    You think the hundred of millions of iPhone users out there who charge their iPhones overnight, wake up when it's fully charged and then unplug it?

    Also, ironically, the current situation with the Boeing 787 is that it's battery was charged too quickly, leaked and overheated.

    Don't worry, your phone isn't made by Boeing or its subcontractors. I don't think.

    No, because it wasn't charging for about 9 hours, it only charged for as long as was needed and then stopped and only topped off after that if/when necessary. Pretty much every phone, computer, etc. from the last few years (if not earlier) and on does this.

    An iphone has a lithium battery which does not over charge. The way it works is it has 3 processes. The first one is charging to 80% very quickly. Then it slowly charges to 100%. Lastly is the trickle charge which the battery continues charging and stops charging when completely full, then when the battery losses charge by a little bit it begins the trickle process again. So ur battery wont be able to overcharge. Don't listen to any other dumb guys on this forum.

    Overcharge Iphone 4s

    Hi I'm new here and I would like to ask regarding my phone who got divided into two. It's LCD separated to its case. I forgot to take it off to the speaker/charging for one week. I can't put together and the screen turned green and black dots. I like to get an opinion before heading to the phone service :(:(
