    Default [Battery] Is charging the iphone a lot (daily) bad?

    I'm a pretty heavy user of EDGE browsing, and apps durring the day, and near the end of the day I am usually at about 25-35% battery life. I have to charge my iphone daily for me to have enough battery for the next day. Is it bad to charge it before it runs completely out? Is it bad to charge it so often?

    You use up more "cycles," but a charge a day wont hurt. The battery will start to loose power after a year anyways.

    I also charge daily at night in order to have the phone ready for the next day's use. My question was somewhat related:

    Does it hurt to leave the phone on the charger overnight or is it something that should not be done?

    No it doesn't hurt.

    Let's make a simple example:

    Take a bottle of water (represents the battery), its capacity is 1 Litre.
    You (represents the Battery charger) fill it until it is full and then stop.

    Even if you continue to fill the Bottle, you wont be able to put more than 1 Litre inside.

    Ask yourself, how did you threat your previous phone? Just apply the same to your iPhone...

    Guys don't be so ... .Battery chrging and discharging is a serious problem and batteries have charge - discharge curves and if you follow correct regim for sure you can have maybe 30% extension in battery life. Need a lot of googling and study.
