This way I ensure that my battery isn't being damaged, and I am not taking away 2 days worth of its total life over the next 3 years, even though I'll probably have a new phone in 1.5 years, and also even though I could buy a replacement battery on Ebay at that point for $10 or so.

Now where is the icon for sarcasm for me to add to this post.......
You spread urban legends and damage your sleep time by waking up a few times during the night. I keep my phone one the charger for the whole night and can assure you it does not get damaged. Leave it one night and you will see, that it stops charging when full
