    battery life = way short

    Advertisement



    Hey everyone. I had a pretty brief question regarding the battery life on my Pearl. When I first got the phone I could probably go 3-5 days without having to charge the thing. I truly don't talk on it all that much and I send a few texts every now and then, possibly 1-2 a day and I probably talk on the phone about 15 minutes max everyday. This hasn't changed since I got the phone.

    I've probably had it about 2 or 3 months now and it seems like the battery life is a lot shorter. Is there anything I can do to get it back to the life it seemed to have when I first got it or I am stuck with the shorter living battery?

    Thanks.

    Well, I bought the seidio enhanced battery just in case, and now I've ended up using only that, having put the OEM in the deep freezer! I'm truly happy with the long life I now have! Cheers!

    As stated above, the OS might have something to do with that. You may also have open programs running in the background that affect battery life. Hit Alt+Escape to see if you have any battery hog programs running in the background (IM programs, etc.).

    The new Italy OS will run the battery short if you turn the Auto-dim off. Try turning down the brightness of your screen. Also, make sure your bluetooth is off....\

    You're probably stuck with a shorter living battery. I'm assuming you didn't change to the TIM software update and that your useage pattern is the same. Batteries go bad just like anything else. I have an OEM I'll sell you for $10 shipped that I don't need. It's 4 months old, lasted 4-5 days between charges.

    Re: battery life = way short

    My battery’s life is definitely shorter now than when I got the pearl a few months ago, and it’s got nothing to do with the TIM OS (It’s been noticeably shorter for several weeks now). But it’s not a big deal. I run programs all day, I’m ALWAYS logged on to BB Messenger, I use the camera, and it still lasts me all day and then some. By the time I go to bed, I’ve got 1 or 2 bars left, but I charge every night, so it’s cool. But if you want to increase battery life, try the tried and true method of letting it completely deplete once in a while before recharging. That tends to “reinvigorate” your charges. If it’s a real issue, get that extended battery (I’ve heard only good things about it).

    it always happens because all batteries work on lithium ionide......and the ions which gets charge....start losing their movement which causes battery to run of shortage...plz buy a new battery...i have 2 batteries...and use them regularly

    Re: battery life = way short

    FYI- using your car charger will also significantly reduce your battery life. That's because it does a quick charge. I have done my own battery tests using 2 batteries, one charged only by car, and one with household current. As with anything else, these results may not apply to everyone. Both batteries had previously been charged by car and household current. I have noticed however that the car charged battery doesn't hold a charge as well, or as long. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
