    I recently went from the 5s to the 6 plus. I have had this phone 2 days. I have noticed that it takes my phone so much longer to charge. I will put it on the charger when I go to bed, and wake up to it still charging. Which I have read on here about the battery, and found a solution to try for that problem..

    The real problem, which I also had with my 5s, is that I can pull it off the charger, and just text a few messages, and check Facebook, and I'm down to 95%. All of my friends that have the 6+ rave and rave about the battery life. I am not on my phone 24/7. I use it normally. Calls, texts, and occasionally Facebook. I've contacted Apple atleast a million times to fix that problem with my 5s, and nothing was really helpful. I JUST got this phone. I shouldn't have problems already. What am I doing wrong?

    Factory restore it as a new device. Don't restore the backup from your iPhone 5s into the 6+ and use it a few days that way to see if it makes any difference in regards to the battery life.

    I brought 12w apple adaptor. It took about 2 hours plus for a full charge.

    I use a Belkin charger with the rotating folding prongs. It charges very fast. I've never timed it but I'm always surprised how fast it charges.

    Make sure you have a strong wifi /cellular signal.

    I don't have battery problems that I know of. I can make it through a day with enough to spare, usually, and I charge every night. I use either the adapter that came with the phone or an iPad charger. I do not use third party chargers, but as long as they put out at least 5W, it should be enough to charge the device in a reasonable time. The 6+ battery is larger than previous iPhones and therefore will take longer to charge (anyone remember the difference in charging times between the 2nd and 3rd generation iPads?). I have seen some other wall chargers that only put out 500mA (or about half of what the official Apple iPhone charger does), and in that case it will charge much slower (or maybe not at all if the phone is actively doing anything). With the iPad charger, the plus should charge faster (at least that's what I've read), but the included iPhone charger should be sufficient for most cases.
