    Is there a way for a fast charge after 80%? iPhone 4

    As you guys probably know, the battery is charging much slower after it gets to 80%.

    As someone who uses the internet, emails, gps a lot.. I charge the phone twice a day. I'm always running somewhere so I find this "Apple feature" quite annoying.

    Is there a way to avoid this?

    Wow. It's not an "apple feature" it's how lithium ion batteries work. It's to prevent damage to the battery from quick overcharging, as well as to balance out the battery cells: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lithium-ion_battery Most cell phones have a charge time of 2 - 2.5 hours, why would Apple be any different? I've had phones going back to 2003 and never had a single one take less than 2 - 2.5 hours

    I didn't know that. Thanks

    The bottom line is that for someone who uses the phone all the time, the battery is just not enough. Sometimes I have 15 minutes between meetings and I wish it would charge faster between 80 to 100%.

    But thanks again.

    You should buy one of those cases that is also a portable battery charger such as (JUST for an example, there are likely other cases) http://www.mophie.com/mobile/default.aspx#P645 or http://www.dexim.net/us/products/B-P/DCA220.html or http://www.dexim.net/us/products/B-P/DCA224.html or even a backup external battery charger like http://www.dexim.net/us/products/B-P/DCA208.html
