    Apple says:

    Let It Breathe
    Charging your iPhone: Certain carrying cases may generate excess heat, which can affect battery capacity. If you notice that your iPhone gets hot when you charge it, take it out of its case first.


    So, do you take the case off when charging?

    I'm kinda interested to find out who picked the Always/Most of the time option.

    I only charge my phone when I go to sleep, and when I do go to sleep I take my Incipio Feather off and let the phone lay on my bed.

    Wow.. just wow :D
    I think you're part of the 3 count on the "always/most of the time" option?

    On the other hand, I never remove my case when charging.

    And then you make your girlfriend sleep on the couch? If you don't have a girlfriend....this might have something to do with it.

    I never remove my case while charging... I also charge while I sleep, so I'm not using while it charges so it doesn't get very hot at all.

    I always remove it. My most used case is my mophie air, and I just charge the two separately even though I could do two at a time.
