My phone is always running low on charge; and I'm probably damaging it by leaving it switched into mains for so long. It's too high maintenance! I'm amazed that modern mobiles still have this problem.

That is a battery problem, the small battery in a cell phone which keeps the phone small and lightweight can only keep the phone standby for a few days at most.
When you are traveling and don't want to be dependant on electrical power outlets, buy for about Eur 100 a small solar panel (e.g. 12V / 5 Watt) and a car charger and this charges the phone in hours...
Electronics shops (e.g. www.conrad.nl) sell this stuff.
