Actually, that isn't what they do, as I am sure you well know.

They throttle the power to ensure that essential functions work then you can buy a new battery for £25 (iPhone 6 or later). iOS 11.3 has a battery life function that tells you if the battery is failing.

I had to buy a pair of laces for my work shoes when only one was broken...…..I'm fuming!

No they can't "Force" you unless it constitutes part of a legally binding contract, in fact it's probably covered under another umbrella but you need to consider the consequences of letting them go flat deliberately, it's not an unreasonable request and like everyone has said, it's no big deal.

Thank you for telling me what I know, that's quite a gift you have, do I know Saturday's lottery numbers too?

To me its the principle that you have ben TOLD you WILL charge
our phone/laptop at your house, with out any discussion.
if you have a good employer with a bit of give and take, all's good.
But some employers just assume you will do what ever they say.
Hope all goes well in the job.

I keep work and play very separate. I'm paid from 7:45 til 16:30 and I've plenty clutter at home without more chargers hanging out of the wall and more rubbish to trip on.
I wouldn't do it.
It's not a requirement of the job to have electric in your house is it?
However if you'd like a promotion or an easy life relies on you being friends with the boss then it might be worthwhile.
