    My Iphone SE has this issue: Max Capacity is 1600mAh, but max charge only 1000 mAh, battery drains real fast. Anyone can help me!!!! I've use this phone for 2 weeks, and charge with Apple US charger.

    Why would you need a battery app for a few-weeks-old-device??

    Max charger is the current of your charger, not what the battery can hold.
    Your battery capacity is 1600 mAh.

    Your battery drains only fast because you are playing with it constantly. That is normal. Depending on what apps you're using the drain will be faster or slower. This is just how batteries work.

    Like cars, the higher the speed, the sooner the gas need.

    Delete that app and enjoy your SE.

    I'm curious what is meant by fast battery drain. As Tartarus said, this strongly depends on apps.

    Facebook is a known drainer, along with some others. I don't know why Facebook just sucks.

    Thanks, but as my feeling, battery runs fast at 100%-80%, much slower at below 80.
    It lasts longer at 100% down to 99%.

    Not really. It just appears that way. It's like having a full tank of gas. Seems to last a long time on full. But seems to go faster the lower the tank is. The issue is the % indicator in the status bar. Try calibrating it by running the battery down to 1%, then charge it up to 100 % with no breaks.

    I think you will find most batteries are not actually the 1600 mah advertised. They will vary but probably exceed the advertised capacity by anything up to 50-60 mah. Therefore, the phone will not register a drop below 100% until it hits 1584mah. In reality the phone will have used far more than 1% of the 'true' battery capacity. This isn't unique to iPhones, old Windows phones used to take an age to drop from 100%. I get almost an hour of usage on my new SE before it falls to 99% it then seems to fall a quicker (relatively anyway) but steady rate.

    To me, that sounds like a lot of additional work. It's much easier to just charge when you'll like to. I have heard continuously that you should try to avoid using a full charge cycle (0-100%) as much as you can, because that's horrible for the battery.

    Personally I put it on the charger at 30-35% because that stops it from using a full charge cycle. 0-100% is good for calibration every once in a while if you'll like to, or you feel like your battery is not showing the correct percentage, but no more than that. As said, it's much easier to just charge when you want to.

    I personally don't see an issue with it, although you should avoid leaving it plugged in for days at a time. I've been charging iPhones overnight for six years and have yet to experience a battery issue.

    I think there was a misunderstanding of my words. My apologies.

    What I meant by the 0-100% comment is letting the battery go down to 0% (or completely die) and then charge it back up to full on a regular basis. Letting the battery go down to 0% isn't good to do all the time.

    You should charge to 100%, nothing is wrong with that. Do what is best for you.
