    Battery..how long?

    Advertisement



    Okay, How long with typical use should the 8100's battery last before you have to charge it again? With typical daily use, I am charging it every two days to two and half days. I am putting it in standby mode when I holster it. Any thoughts?

    Re: Battery..how long?

    I use mine to maybe make the odd call and I can get 8 days or so out of it. I don't put it in standby mode or anything though I just slip it into the holster when not in use.

    If a Bluetooth device is connected, and on, they drain the battery fast. 1 - 2 days will drain my full battery dead when the headset is connected.

    Also If you leave a lot of processes running in the background I find it drains the juice faster. I used to hit the Hang Up button to exit applications/games but this appears to leave them running in the background. Hold the bottom left button (the one with the up/down arrow icon) and press the button to the right of the trackball (with the loop back arrow icon on it). Use the trackball too see what processes you have running in the background and release the bottom left button to switch to the selected application.

    Once my battery was draining fast and I didn't know why but after recharging it it seemed to go back to normal. Made me wonder if possibly the bluetooth connection remained on even though I had turned my headset off. Just a glitch and hasn't happened since.

    Also with other phones I have had in the past the worse your reception is the more juice the phone will use trying to maintain it. So if you normally only have 1 or 2 bars, or go into an area with no coverage for extended periods of time, perhaps the phone is using more power. Not sure about this though.

    Re: Battery..how long?

    I've had my phone for about 2 weeks now and it hasn't dropped below 1 bar from full. I charge it only when I'm installing software or something.

    I tried getting the Pearl battery to go from 100% to 0% and I had the toughest time from 12% and below. I set BT on, brightest setting and set "Play All" of my mp3s. Took over 1.5 hours for it to finally die (from 12% to 0%).

    I use it as my work/personal cell phone.
    If I just use it to make calls it will last about 2-3 days. Normally I charge it once per a day.

    Re: Battery..how long?

    The average time is 2-3 days with casual use from reading multiple forums. I charge mine every other day if it needs it or not.

    One day +- if you a big IMer and leave the IM programs running 24/7 or leave the BT on 24/7.
