We have electricity in our house so it's no problem for me to charge up electrical items.

yeah but surely charging it everyday will quickly ruin the battery??

Maybe 12 years ago but modern batteries are built of stronger stuff

charging a battery everyday is fine if its being fully discharged each time, its the little top ups that ruin batteries.

and yes, all iphone batteries only last about a day, expect to charge it every night.

there is also cases like the juice pack for the 3g / 3gs that have battery built in enabling you to charge the battery upto 70% whilst out roaming the streets

depends what you do on it...if your always playing with it..had 3g turned on..streaming stuff etc then yeah it will die...infact mine could die within hours if download some games of 3g and then play them

Depends on how much you use it.

There are ways of preserving the battery life like turning down the brightness, turning off 3G, not constantly playing apps etc.

so say i have 3g off and brightness down etc and i go on the web for an hour and play games an hour.....roughly how long will it last???

About the whole day, I've spent ages on the web, let the kids play games, just runs low by the end of the night

Mine lasts about 1.5/2 days. Regular surfing on the internet.

But . . .

Bluetooth must be off, this takes alot of battery. Also I have WIFI on all the time. If you use 3G, wifi being on will help with the battery because it is quicker when downloading data.

But to be honest, the best phone on the planet is worth it!

On average, I get about 2 days out of the battery, and that's with frequent checking of my e-mails and web pages, making about an hour of calls, and playing games for a bit. I have managed almost 5 days of standby together with using the phone for 9 hours (games, music, etc.) without charging, but that was with bluetooth, wifi and 3G off (abroad)
P.s. constant charging without fully discharging these batteries does no harm (not the modern batteries, maybe 5 years ago). The batteries have a life cycle of full charges from empty - you should not be emptying out the battery every time before you recharge.
