    Battery Life

    Advertisement



    So far I love my 8703e, but I haven't seen this great battery life everyone is talking about. Maybe I have been using it too much ;-)

    I got it up to 100%, made 2 or 3 short phone calls, had data on (BIS email), and battery was down to about 70%. Lasted about a day yesterday.

    Also, the only time its 100% is when it is fully charged. Otherwise, when I pull the plug it goes to 95%....makes sense I guess...but I figured it would stay at 100% for at least a little while

    My battery will start at 100%, obviously, and will go down to 80% by half of the day, it will linger between 60 an 80 pretty much all day. I have gone two days before hitting 20% on many occasions. And if you ask anyone Im on my BB using data, not phone, all day long.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~i did have a lot of apps running in the background. Maybe that was part of the issue.

    Re: Battery Life

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~well battery life is still somewhat lackluster. I had a full charge, made about a 20min call, did some internet surfing, and now by batt is down to 65percent. I wonder if I should bring it back and get a different batt or something. I realice that others have this kind of batt. life but this 8700 is brand new. Also, will it hurt the battery life over time by charging it whenever i can? Ex. Sticking it on my usb cable while i'm at work?

    Thanks!

    Nope. It doesn't charge as quickly on USB.
