    Do you charge your phone every day and keep it toped up or let it run down very low before charging?

    I let mine run down low before charging. Around 20% or so.

    On my iPhone 5S, I can go two days between charges and on my iPhone 6, I can go three days between charges. I am not a heavy user.

    I let mine run down to about 10% or lower then charge. I have a portable battery pack so if I'm out & about, I'll still be able to charge. My battery usually lasts about a day & a half.

    I charge my 6+ every night. It doesn't make any sense to let the battery going completely down and wait until I charge it again. I don't know what will happen the next day, so it's good to have the phone fully charged instead of taking a charger and a cable with me.

    Maybe a spontaneous trip somewhere with friends and you need some maps, take a lot of pictures and videos, need a flashlight etc. So just charge it and you don't have to think about battery problems

    I'm using an iPhone 6+, which has a really amazing battery, still I want to be one the safe side

    I charge as needed.
    I generally plug in at night. But if I've been on longer than normal I plug in at work before I leave for the train.

    I usually let my battery run down to the point of being depleted and then charge it overnight. A few of those nights, I'll charge it with the device powered off.

    I have an iphone 4S. I let it run down to about 10% if I am home. I always charge it overnight, but sometimes it needs charged in the afternoon as well. I'm a heavy user so I even have to carry around a backup battery pack.

    Haha I also had an iPhone 4s and was in the same situation, a power user and always needed to charge and to take a battery pack with me

    That's why I got an iPhone 6+, so I don't have to worry about battery anymore

    I always let mine die completely before plugging in, and then I let it completely charge.

    I read an article last week about Li-On batteries being "topped off" whenever possible and not letting discharge below 50%.

    I have mixed feelings though.

    I charge mine every night, same as many here. I am not a heavy user because I fear my phone will die before the days through if I were to become one. Hopefully the 6 Plus can help me there.
