    Reduced Battery Life

    Advertisement



    Has anyone else noticed a great reduction in battery life?

    I have had my pearl for about 8 months, don't make hundreds of calls, or data or text, bluetooth is not switched on etc but am now having to charge the battery every day.
    Does anyone have any ideas or suffered a similar fate?

    Re: Reduced Battery Life

    Two possibilities, or actually maybe it is a combination of both:
    1. It is the nature of rehcargable batteries. They start loosing charging ability almost immediately, with real noticebale loss around 200 charges and a significant loss around 400. These are guesses, as every battery is different. Supposedly a battery that is not allowed to drain too often will last longer than one that is regularly drained all the way down. Eight months of heavy usage sounds early, but long enough to be possible. Order a replacement battery and worse case you've got a backup battery.
    2. You've got some new background applications running that require regular use of data transmission/receipt. Turning on that transmitter is a major battery drain. Turning it on a regular basis will eat through any battery. If you are running something like Viirgo, JiveTalk, SimulSays, or similar then those are the type of apps I am referring to.

    If you use Instant Messaging that will drain your battery so recharging will need to be done more often.

    my battery works fine unless I have Jivetalk online all day. Then it kills the battery.
