    I keep a small pouch in my briefcase with a Griffin USB wall charger with 3 ports. 1 for a USB lightning cable ( iPad) another for a micro USB for QI pad for phone. Last USB micro port is for 'local phone' which provides wifi-hotspot for data.....
    Ditto with something similar. In my laptop bag I keep a usb charger with 4 ports and a couple extra cables. I also keep a solar powered battery with wireless charging. I also have wireless charging in my car.

    Actually my Laptop bag is pretty much well stocked just like yours and I could probably accommodate a small Army...I guess we both have a problem. LOL . *the Kitchen Sink* comment was a joke.

    How often do you guys charge your iPhone? I got mine replaced over Thanksgiving because of a shattered camera that lead to the whole back being shattered because of how I dropped it. Are you guys worried about battery? My battery health is still at 100%. I was just wondering how often or at a certain percentage you guys charge it

    I set it on a vertical type Anker wireless over night every night, and on a flat coaster type when away from the bedroom. I let the 'optimized charging' take care of the management. Phone is 3 years old, battery 93%.... I've never ever used any thing 'fast charging' though and don't need to as phone is rarely below 80% charge.

    What is fast charging compared to coaster like charging. I have a Mophie coaster that I rarely use compared to my anker lightning port charger. Someone I follow on Twitter says to limit your charging? I guess that really doesn’t matter? I know everyone has their own opinions

    The Anker simply orients vertically, phone always correctly positioned, 'coaster' reminding me of cork drink coasters on an end table.

    So do you try to limit your charging or don’t worry about it

    Never do, never have. I use 'settings/battery /battery health / and leave 'optimum battery charging' to do the wizardry. I do not use fast chargers or car chargers.

    I always have a usb to lightning cable with me for charging my phone whenever I need to.
    So far I have always made it back home without having to charge while out and about or working.

    If I am going out for a long day I take my little tube type Anker battery pack. That and battery saver mode will get me home.

    I have a Smart Battery Case on my iPhone. It’s smaller battery is generally out by the end of a work day , and midday on weekends.

    I have chargers at home and in my car. But unless the battery is low, I will only charge it overnight. And with Optimize Battery Charging enabled.

    It will charge until 80% using fast charging and then wait until 5:00 to complete the work.

    Is there a period where Optimized Battery Charging 'learns' your habits? I ask because only now ( 2 weeks and 'loose change' after I got my iPhone 12, - in lockdown & curfew I've lost track of time in a way -) and only now does it seem to inhibit charging much beyond 85% until daybreak. ( Normal get-up time at our house is 6 AM 'dog-duty') Strangely also, although enabled, it never really affected my 8+ that I perceived, nor my wife's 8+', but my 12 behaves differently.

    There is a learning period.

    I use a couple of qi chargers, and also my iPad brick to charge my devices. I have a couple of power banks, which are currently charging because we're due for some high winds tomorrow, and I want to be prepared. I keep them in a tech pouch which I can access any time.
    Updating to add that I now have two Lightning to USB-c cords and two USB-c chargers, one at home, and one in my office at work. I've not purchased a mag safe charger, yet. I'm not sure that I will.

    Each side of our bed for bedside table is a Griffin dual USB charger 5V / 2.4 Amp. (12W) 1 cable is lightning for iPad, other is USB A to Anker QI verticle style charger. Spare room has 1 Griffin Dual with 1 12W & 1 5W port. I use the 12 for QI disc ( Klipxtreme) for iPhone and the 5 for lightning to my iPad mini. A couple of other QI discs around the house. 1 'Allpowers' 2 port PowerBrick in a drawer & checked ( topped up) weekly 'just in case'. Most charging is done overnight all devices so fast-charge not required. In the travel bag I carry a QI disc too and a Griffin 'Triple' charge block 3X 5V 2A USB Ports. 1 for USB A to disc, 1 USB to lightning (iPad) & one old style USB A for a travelling Android phone.

    Not that I need another charger, but I've been thinking about adding a MagSafe Charger to my arsenal as well.
