    what does 'eh' mean? lol

    IIRC, it takes a couple of charging cycles for the battery to work as intended.

    I have gone through a few apple products in my time. I only purchased the car chargers.

    Battery life is fine for me.

    I use my phone pretty sporadically through out the day and by night it is in the red zone. I just charge it until 100% or leave it overnight. Rinse and repeat. Have not had to bust out my extra charger at work.

    I mostly use the phone for web surfing on Wi-Fi FWIW

    My battery is still on the first charge from last Monday 24th. Got the 10% alert about an hour ago. 5 days, 8 hours at present. Like trying to see how many miles you can get on a tank of gas. Waiting until it turns off just for grins. It was light usage this week but I didn't expect it would last this long

    are you being serious?

    I assume you only use your phone for call/text...

    Yeah I am not sure what to make of that. That is awfully long time though I do surf quite a bit. Basically have my phone on me the whole time and will check email/read the news when I have down time.

    on a full charge at 6 am, it's almost gone by early afternoon, let's say 2-3 pm. that's with fairly heavy, but not at all constant LTE use. my usage statistics say I've sent 70mb and received 600 mb since I got the phone on launch day. let's say I also do about one hour per day of phone use over wi-fi

    edit - I am ok with the external battery pack solution but my previous mophie case was rubbish. didn't really charge my iPhone 4 as expected and died pretty fast. I'm basically looking for alternatives, or should I give mophie another chance?

    Small timer. Have your PA handle the whole issue for you.
