I read some where that all modern phones don't over charge once they reach 100%. So leaving them plugged up until you need to carry it is ok. Is that true or another lie? Some apps are very energy dependent GPS for instance and some games. So will it hurt the battery if it's at 95%or 100% and then you plug it up to use the GPS so it doesn't drain your battery while on the trip?

Well yes they won't overcharge (otherwise the battery would short and catch on fire!) but essentially all modern phones drive the charge cycle WAY beyond best practice.

Whether this turns into a problem for you depends on how badly you drain the battery. If you get through a full day without having to charge you probably won't get into trouble for two years or so.

But if you need to reload mid-day, well.... a cycle is a cycle, and if you get 500 of them and use 2 a day, you do the math.
