Default Battery discharging rapidly in the morning

Can someone tell me if the S3 charges until fully charged then stops?

This is my issue. I usually charge my phone over night, a few times when I've taken it off charge in the morning the meter says 100% but within minutes of my using it the meter says 85% (or similar). The battery then discharges at the expected rate over the rest of the day so after 12 hours it might be at 50%.

Is this because the phone hits full charge at say 2am then doesn't charge anymore so when I check in the morning it appears to be 100% when I take it off charge until the battery charge app reassesses the level?

Any ideas?

I've got a Galaxy S3 on Jellybean 4.1.2

Thanks.

its normally not advisable to charge the phone overnight. From what I can tell Android phones charge until they're at 100% then stop charging and let the battery drop to about 95% then start to charge again and it'll keep doing this until you unplug it from the charger.

Hmm that's a pain, I work out doors and so like my phone to be fully charged when I leave in the morning.

This looks interesting.
