    Charged my iPhone 5S using a Anker Astro E5 using its 1A USB port. Charging time increased by approximately one hour or so and also the usage time increased dramatically. Here I'm posting some photos. This is the best I've got so far. I think it's charging at a low amperage. Must be less than 1A, that's why the charging time has increased.

    Hope this reply won't categorized under marketing.

    My battery was pretty good today. Alot of it depends on how much it decides it wants to charge. Sometimes I remove it from the charger and it's at 99% and dropping quickly.

    Today was all browsing and some FaceTime audio.

    This is the kind of battery life I could only dream about for the longest time. I attribute it to a lot of low power use tasks such as heavy talking and some streaming music with Bluetooth on but mostly just browsing with wifi.

    I can pretty much go a full day through a charge on mine and I am a pretty heavy user on my device. With texting, phone calls and a lot of app usage/syncing. Better than my girlfriends 5C

    So I'm seeing a lot of people with 7+ hour battery life...I just updated to 7.1.1 and the battery drain is gone from 7.1, yet I feel like my old iPhone 4 had better battery life. I have Background App Refresh OFF, Location services are turned OFF for some apps, frequent locations OFF, location based Ads are OFF, Bluetooth is kept on at times because it connects to my car, but I try to turn it off when I remember to. Use Wi-Fi maybe 30 mins a day to stream iTunes Radio. Aside from that I usually browse Instagram, a bit of Facebook, Snapchat, some web browsing. I made an appt at the Genius Bar on Sunday just to check if my battery isn't performing as it should!

    I feel like my battery life has gotten worse with 7.1.1. Before that, I rarely had to juice it up during the day, even if I had evening plans and needed to make sure my phone was good to go but now I'm finding that I need to give it a boost if I have a long evening ahead.

    I'm in the same situation...only get 5/5 hours 1/2 with Bluetooth OFF, Background refresh app OFF, Location services OFF for most of the apps and system services...

    Go to Apple store 2 weeks ago and at the Genius bar, the guys told me my battery is fine and in the green area when they test it...

    Honestly if I was not as integrated into the Apple ecosystem (2 iPhone, iPod, iPad, iMac, Apple TV, Time Capsule) I have changed my cell for Android or Windows Phone. All of my family and friends have iPhone and iPad and i don't want to lose the ability to send SMS to iPad/iMac...

    A lot of your battery drainage depends on how much you use your device and what you do on your device. You can test your battery drainage doing this:
    So here's the test: write down your Usage and Standby time, press the sleep/wake button (or lock button, as some call it) to put the device to sleep, and set the device down for five minutes. When you come back, take note of the change in time. If your device is sleeping properly, then the Standby time should have increased by five minutes and your Usage time by <1 minute . If your Usage time rises by more than one minute, you have a drain problem. Something is keeping your device from sleeping properly, significantly shortening the time it will last.

    I get about 5 hours of usage. I usually charge from 50% around 1PM and then have ample amounts for the remainder of the day.

    Since 7.1.1, battery life has been way better for me. Wasn't bad before but now I find myself not taking my Anker battery with me at the beginning of my shifts. Comes off the charger at 2 am and at about 2pm I have 30 some odd percent left. And I'm texting, emailing, browsing constantly. Not much time for music and I don't watch shows. Games on occasion, and my brightness is at the halfway mark.

    Well, I've tried everything on my phone, but never succeeded to get past 7 hours battery usage on a full charge. So if someone claims longer usage, I sincerely doubt the way they've used the phone.
