    Uh a "regular" charger?! Mine only came with one. Why wouldn't the one that came with it not be good to charge overnight?! Note I'm confused...
    I am using the charger from my Droid Maxx, but any old micro with a plug will do. They pump out less juice which in turn doesn't heat up the battery, which is not good for the battery's long term health. A slow charge is much better at night there is plenty of time for it to charge. I will use the turbo charger only when it is needed.

    OK cool, so would you say that my old Samsung Galaxy S4 charger would be safe and work for overnight charging? Thanks for the insight.

    I use a wireless Tylt charger overnight. I just sit the phone on it next to my bed and its nice and easy if I need to reach over to grab it. Its always 100% by morning.

    I used a Qi wireless charger last night. No issues.

    The first rule of carrier store salesmen: don't take their technical advice.

    Of course it's fine to plug in overnight. It's also better to have lots of small charges than fewer deep charges.

    It should also only get warm during actual "Turbo charging." The turbo charger doesn't Turbo charge all the time. Just when the battery is below a certain point. As the battery level increases, the charger output decreases.

    For example, if you charge it from 20% to 30%, it's gonna get warm.
    If you charge from 90% to 100% you likely won't feel any difference.

    With the caveat that it is far too early to truly judge battery life, I'd say that it has better standby than the Turbo 1, but drains faster than the Turbo 1 with the screen on.

    After 4 hours, I am at 60%. Only charged it once. Moderate use. Comparing it to my Note 5, it doesn't seem like it's worth it so far. But I am going to give it a few more days.

    Just a note, ive been off charge for a little over 10hrs, w 3:23 hrs on screen and lots of calls and im sitting at 62 percent.

    Im pretty happy w that. My T1 and my note5 both get good life, and as long as i can make it through a long shift (tonight is a 14hr shift) im good...

    Just picked up mine yesterday. Charged her up to 100 and I am about 6 hrs into the first charge.
    The phone has 4 hrs 36 mins sot at present and battery is at 49%. That just boggles my mind. My Nexus 6 would die right around 4 hrs. So even on the first charge, battery is phenomenal!

    On my Turbo 1, I'd lose about 1% per hour on standby. On the Turbo 2, I'm generally not losing any battery on standby. However, screen on time seems to drain a little faster than the first Turbo. Anyone have any theories on why that is?

    Hmm, we've had more than 18 months of qualcomm quick charging on phones and I've seen no evidence at all that there has been an issue with rapid loss of charge capacity.

    I generally use the Tylt View wireless charger. I used it daily for a year with my first Turbo. No issues what so ever. Always charging overnight. Rarely used the turbo charger. In my vehicles I use the Verizon rapid charger. Often keeping the phone plugged in while using Waze or Google maps. Again, no issues with first Turbo. Time will tell with the T2.

    Motorola improved the efficiency of background processing, particularly for Moto display and voice, and maybe for the radios, so they could make the battery smaller for the same amount of average usage time, which makes the display draw more power relatively?

    Because of the air gapped display shining through an extra layer, they had to increase the power draw of the display when it is on?

    (Two quick theories...)

    OMFG look at this first charge on the t2. Totally heavy, heavy use. Everything on and synched with brightness about 60%. Over 9 hours sot, are you kidding me? Absolutely amazing. They say to let the battery settle and life should improve after a few cycles, but dang, I would be ok with a reduction in batt life...haha
    Came from the nexus 6 and I thought 3.5 hours sot was styling.

    As for the screen on time draining more battery I'd assume the bigger screen has quite a bit to do with that. Bigger screens means more to light up which means more power is needed.

    It's the same resolution (number of pixels) as the Turbo. It shouldn't be that much different. If everything else is more efficient, though, then the screen will draw a higher percentage of power because the rest of the phone draws less.
