Default Did you find yourself ignoring the Spare Battery Charger

Did anyone purchase a spare battery charger and find themselves still plugging their phone in most of the time, forgetting their charger at home, not wanting to take off case and rebooting phone every time, etc? And find themselves only using it for emergency purposes?

No not really. Taking the time to swap batteries is still better than waiting for the phone to charge.

This. Hate having down time as I'm firmly addicted to my phone.

I have the Anker battery set and charger too. Day to day at home or the office I rarely use them but I do a fair bit of traveling each month and in planes, trains, and automobiles they come in handy.

And yes it's a PITA to take off my case. Especially since I switched from the cheap one piece TPU/Pleather case to the two piece Rubber/Pleather with separate silver trim AVOC case.

I'm the opposite. I haven't plugged my phone into it's charger for months now. Always have the extra battery fully charged
