    That would be awesome! Please post your results!

    The Anker seems to work great for many.
    Also, a Griffin PowerJolt.
    They are also recommending a 20-22 AWG cable.
    Regards,

    I'm working on getting the SE discharged enough that it will register more than a trickle. I have noticed that when iPhones get above about 95%, the charge rate tapers off. Also, they don't begin to register being below 100% until they are actually around 95%. I suspect that's why my phone reads 100% after being on my nightstand all night.

    I don't find the Battery Life app as accurate as the JailBreak version. For instance, it will not register a charger swap from 1 amp to 2.4 amps without being restarted. With a JB'ed phone, you could have a charge/discharge level displayed in the Status Bar. I think that's where I formed the opinion about the 5 charging more than 1 amp. Too bad there isn't a JB for the 7+ yet.

    Well, I finally was able to get my SE to discharge down to 51%. (What a great phone with awesome battery life!)

    I connected my in line ammeter and it started charging at about 1.8ma, then within about 15 seconds dropped to around 1.15ma and held there. If I streamed a video it would climb back to 1.8 or so, and stay there with the extra load. So what I take away from this is, the SE will accept an input higher than 1.0ma for charging and usage, but seems to favor around 1.0 for just recharging.
