    For those that own a Mophie JuicePack.

    There are 2 ways to use a Mophie-
    1. ON. Mophie battery runs down first, iPhone stays at 100%
    2. OFF. iPhone battery runs down first. Turn on Mophie when needed.

    Do you leave it ON or OFF when starting out the day?

    I think the first way is better because the iphone battery gets less charge cycles on light usage days. And the mophie only has to maintain 100% which is easier than recharging while depleted.

    It actually doesn't matter because the phone doesn't count partial charges as a full cycle. So charge it as much as you need.

    I've used both approaches. A friend recently cautioned me to let the phone go below 50% from time to time...but didn't elaborate as to why.

    I must admit I like looking at the "charged" symbol all day.

    Either way, I love the Mophie.

    I use it the second way in case I ever need it for emergencies. But I have used it both ways, I just prefer the second way. I find the iPhone gets really hot when it's constantly being charged.

    I want to use my iPhone as a hand-me-down for my kid. Thus I am trying to protect the battery of the iPhone by using the JPA battery first every day. I have reminders set to recycle the iPhone battery at the intervals recommended by Apple.

    I know, I know ... so OCD. :eek:

    My iPhone told me that it wants to be constantly charged.

    I obey.
