    I also go the additional OCD route and put my phone on a fan while charging (out of case). My normal temp via GSam is 74 while charging. I have not attempted to fast charge as I want to avoid heat as much as humanly possible on the battery.

    I only charge this phone once a day.
    I get up at 7:30 and charge my phone. Around 8:00 to 8:30 it's fully charged. I take it off the charger once I see it's fully charged. I do not have data, Bluetooth, or gps running in the background ever. I do have my Wi-Fi on in the morning so I can lookout for emails from my boss. Once I leave the house usually around 10am, I turn off my Wi-Fi and clear out any running background apps by pressing the multitask button and clear all. For me is a habit to hit clear all every time I'm done with an app(s). I do use GPS and data when I'm navigating to job sites, and I turn them back off once I get there. I will use Wi-Fi inside people homes to test things (I'm an audio/video tech). I get off work usually at 5pm. By then my phone is usually between 80%-90%. Then I drive to my girlfriend's campus and I get on Wi-Fi there when I do something on my phone. And then I get home at about 11pm an my phone is usually between 60%-70%. I go to bed and wake up/repeat. My phone rarely gets to 50% and below. Right now it's 5:53pm and I'm at 85%. So I hope this helps anyone out with extending battery life.

    Also I keep my brightness all the way down and I use power saving mode through the work week.
    I turn off power saving mode on the weekends and I'll also turn up my brightness just past the Wi-Fi icon.

    Good tips for the extreme situations like being away from electrical power of any kind for a day or 3. Otherwise just making it through a long day is fine for me which my 10 always is able to do. I don't mind charging once a day with not having to tweak settings.
