Just charge whenever you need to, don't be overly concerned about the battery.

You just need to drain it once a month your battery will be just fine.

Finds that when playing video or games, the phone lasts only about 2-3 hours. When surfing the net on LTE, will last at least 6 to 7 hours (this is not aggresive downloading and stuff).

Think I will transfer the gaming and video watching to my iPad Mini LTE when it is launched. Will just use iPhone 5 as a phone, for Facebook, Whatsapp and other simple task.

Drain means use until it runs out of battery and shuts off

Just got an exchange from SH and battery still seems the same, draining very fast when using 3g or lte to surf internet, at most 5.5hrs with the screen continuously on and surfing. Anyone here got better usage times on 3g after an exchange? I am deciding whether to go through the trouble of another exchange or just accept that Apple lied about the 8 hrs 3g lte internet browsing time.

I am not sure. The guy say it's new but I don't know if he really knows for sure. It's manufactured in week 35 compared to my old one which is week 40, it could be either way.

Kinda regret going for the exchange actually.

Very true. today I played video for continously 2hrs and at the same time was downloading video, within 3 hrs 100% becomes 40+%.

Anyone has any strong recommendations on battery packs (those casing type)?

Btw,off topic a bit...for appletv, is it anything also can mirror? all games, all applications?

I think if the place has low signal and you are surfing, the batt will run out faster. That's what I realized, maybe wrong too!
