Can you have too much charge?

Mac Format - - APPLE TALK -

I nor­mally leave my iPhone 5c plugged into the mains charger dur­ing the day and overnight, only un­plug­ging it when I ac­tu­ally go out. Is there a risk of over­charg­ing it this way? Should I let the bat­tery run down now and again? Stu­art Brookes The mains adapter will pro­tect it from over­charg­ing, but keep­ing your bat­tery per­ma­nently at full charge will re­duce its to­tal ca­pac­ity by about 20% each year. A good com­pro­mise is to charge it overnight and let it run from the bat­tery dur­ing the day.
