    Battery Life, What are you guys getting?

    Advertisement



    I have had my pearl for about a 3 weeks. It started out with 3 days of standby basically.

    It has since dwindled to alittle over 24hrs. I havent changed anything on my phone still syncing the same.

    So my question to you guys is what do you guys typically get from a full charge a "normal" usage?

    I just charge it every night so I don't have to worry about it.

    with standby mode (as of doing nothing with phone) i get 7 full days or more before it needs to be recharged

    however since i do alot of txting....hardcore txting would get me at least three days and maybe a little more....just normal usage a few txting and standy by would be around 4 - 5 days before needs to charge


    you might wanna make sure nothing is running in the background such as browser or messenger or other apps ....click on alt + back arrow button and you should see a task list of things that are running

    Re: Battery Life, What are you guys getting?

    It greatly depends on how much mail comes in, how much web browseing or texting and calling you do. In the older Blackberry Manuels, it said that unlike a standard Cell phone the Blackberry is to be charged every day. do not let the battery run all the way down. this is not go for the batttery. I have never seen RIM state this has changed. I charge mine every night, and it seems happy, I get down to 2 bars if it has been a chatty day, But I have a cord in my PC at work, a car charger, a cord in my laptop bag and a wall charger at home.

    Mine gets down to 10% battery life from 8:30AM to about 10:00PM. This is with heavy use of Jivetalk, SMS and Email, moderate Phone use, and light web browsing and etc (Viigo, Google Maps. Live Search). I dont play media (videos, music) on my phone though.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I text, no idea how much.. And do a lot of web browsing since my puter is CRAP! Also BB messenger. I charge it at night. I start at 730am and by 11PM I'm down to 20%.

    I used to get at least 2 days of battery life when my phone was new before I had to recharge. Now 6 months later I usually get down to 20-25% by the end of the day with normal usage. I normally just send around 20 texts a day, check the weather occasionally and go on pinstack before I go to sleep.

    With usage of IM and Messengers and apps, mine goes down to 80%. Once I start making one call, then that thing drops like a girl or dude going down REAL LOW and taking a deep plunge. LOL

    When I had my 8100 with Cingular, I never had this problem with the battery dying so fast like I do with my 8130.

    Mine usually has to be charged by the end of the night. However thats probably counting numerous text messages/emails and as well as IM/Facebook messages. As well as a few calls throughout the day ranging in time from 10 minutes to over an hour. Either way I just got in the habit of charging it every night so it doesnt really dawn on me anymore.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~I receive between 200 and 300 emails a day, 75 to 100 txts a day and make or receive 75 to 100 calls a day. Lasts a couple of days as long as I'm not using my bluetooth. That drastically reduces the battery life.

    Re: Battery Life, What are you guys getting?

    Im so glad theres a thread about this. I just purchased my 8100 last week and it only lasts a day. I have that "pimp my pearl" app on my phone. Im guessing thats a major contributor. I was wondering if it was just moi.
