    Question 8100 battery life

    Advertisement



    Ok I have read many places that the battery for the 8100 should last up to 4 days. I can not get mine to last more than one day before I am having to recharge. Should I have my carrier look into this or am I just using it too much because I am new to all of this and tryng to figure out all I can?
    Thanks!

    Well my Pearl typically lasts about 1 day. I charge it every night. From 8AM to about 11PM I'm usually down to 30% battery life. This is with heavy use and Jivetalk and etc running in the background. Just for reference.

    Ok, I have noticed it goes down faster if I talk on BB messenger so I figured that was part of it. I was going to install the jivetalk but am worried it will zap the battery right out of the phone if I did!!

    4 days sounds about right if you use your BB couple times a day.
    Once you start using IM, music, video, it can barelly hold for one day without charging.
    I charge mine every night when I go to bed, so in the morning is ready to putup with me.

    Never four days, especially since Bluetooth is always on for car use. Two days would be pushing it.

    You're better off just plugging it up each night. That way you're not stick with a drained battery when you really need your phone.

    Are there extended life batteries that are capable of fitting behind stock back?

    Sorry, for the extended batteries for the 8100 all have to have a special battery cover.

    Where might one be found sir?
    Mine I let charge every night while I sleep, but its usually dead around nine or so the next evening. Not bad, kinds dissapointing but I'm new to BB and willing to take all it does for me in trade. I mean after all its like a computer, and better than some of them in my house lol.

    Thanks!
