The battery life is VERY much shorter on my phone than it used to be. I'm having to buy new ones every 3/4months? What's wrong? I always buy the best possible type from a reliable supplier.


battery life depends on 2 things
the amount of time you spend on the phone and the number of apps you are running
and the level of charge at which you recharge the phone
Recent questions put to a phone repair shop got the answer that 3 days from a fully charged battery was exceptional as most only do 1 day on normal use and less if watching live streaming
as to the level at recharge , batteries have a habit of developing a level memory and will not charge past that point
So if you continually recharge at almost flat, and allow for a full recharge , you get full battery life
at the other end of the period , if you recharge at say 75% charge , the battery memory starts and then it doesn't matter how long you charge the battery for , it will only charge 25% which means you wind up with a flat battery more often
so how to overcome the problem---the more you use it the quicker the battery runs down and when recharging always allow the battery to be less than 5% charge before recharging it ( dead flat is best) and leave it on charge for the max amount of time ( overnight is best)

How do I stop the battery from draining after only a few hours.


try letting the battery completely die and recharge it. Do this 2 or 3 times. Sometimes "topping up" a partially charged battery puts a memory into the battery and it wont allow you to do full charge.. I let my Nokia get to its last legs before replacing the battery with a spare and then fully charge the other one. Both batteries are now at least 6 years old.. Yes , its an old phone...

Buttons don't make any sound but can hear dial tone, speaker phone doesn't work, phone dies fairly quickly - would this all be caused by bad battery and what is the life of battery in a Panasonic cordless...


First off, try changeing from tone dial to pulse dial and try calling out. If that does'nt work, touch bad is probly bad. As far as the speaker phone it does not work off battery's it works from the main base which is powered from the A/C. And for the battery life, when you have a cordless phone you have to build the life to the battery, what I mean is : first time you charge it for 12-14 hours, after that use the phone and do not put it back into cradle, the battery will hold a charge for 8 hrs, if you use it for 30 mins and put back on cradle untill next use, use another 30 min and continue doing this the battery will build its life to 30 min and always die after 30 min, try to get into leaveing off cradle all day and charge while you sleep and keep off cradle all day.

I put my Droid Razr on charger but battery symbol comes on with ? mark. Won't charge or turn on.


1. Turn off your phone when it's not in use. If you're not using your Verizon Wireless Razr, then shut it off. Your battery will last much longer if you regularly do this.
2. Charge your phone less. If you charge your Razr nightly, then your cell phone battery won't last long. Try to charge your phone only a few times a week to extend the battery life.
3. Keep your Bluetooth turned off when you're not using it. Applications, like Bluetooth, are notorious for sucking the power from a cell phone battery.
4. Protect your Razr from extreme temperatures. Your cell phone battery lasts longer if kept at room temperature.
5. Discharge the Razr fully. Before you charge your phone, let it completely die. You can extend the life of the battery by regularly discharging and then fully charging it.
6. Leave the battery in the phone. Keep the Razr battery dry and free of dirt to prolong its life.

FOR HOW LONG CAN THE BATTRY LAST BEFORE YOU CHANGE IT


How Long Does the Nokia E65 battery REALLY last?
Ever wonder how long the phone battery actually lasts? For the first use of my Nokia E65, I charged the phone for 24 hours after receiving it (still not sure if this is necessary), then took it off the charger Saturday afternoon. The battery low warning first sounded 54 hours later. This was after
•Calls: Around 15 calls made and about 3 calls received, with almost 40 minutes call duration in total.
•Data: 726kb data sent and 3.96mb downloaded
•WIFI: About 20 minutes of WIFI use
•Applications: Use of Skype and Gmail application as well as a bit of Nokia Maps and Google Maps
The battery eventually gave up after 2 more hourse of standby. The Nokia website says the following about the Nokia E65 battery:
•BP-4L 1500 mAh Li-Po standard battery
•Talk time (maximum): GSM up to 11 hours; WCDMA up to 4h 40 min
•Standby time (maximum): GSM up to 18 days; WCDMA up to 20 days;WLAN idle up to 170 hours

If you are wanting to make comparisons with the Nokia E71 battery life, this is what the Nokia website claims for the Nokia E71. The Nokia E65 and E71 both use the same battery - BP-4L 1500 mAh Li-Po battery but E71 is slightly more demanding on the battery life.
•Talk time:- GSM up to 10 h 30 min- WCDMA up to 4 h 30 min
•Standby time:- GSM up to 17 days- WCDMA up to 20 days- WLAN idle up to 166 hours
If you are willing to help, maybe you can do the same experiment for your Nokia E65. Use the call logs and the data counter under "Connectivity" and measure how long your Nokia E63 battery lasts with "normal" usage. Report your findings in the comments below and someone just as curious as you googling battery life E65 will also benefit from your efforts.
Your mobile habits may not be as demanding as me but I hope this helped you in your battery life calculations for the Nokia E65.
To charge a battery from empty to full, it took 2 hours and 40 minutes


....... If you are willing to help, maybe you can do the same experiment ... It lasts me about 40 hours before I get a battery low warning .... I got my Nokia E65

This is my 4th new razr phone, and the same problem exists, very short battery life, no more than an hour or so talk time. i charged the battery for the recommended 12 hours first, and still the charge...


Just a suggestion, but if you leave your bluetooth runnung it wears out the battery faster, so you could try turning the bluetooth off when you dont need it to see if that makes a difference. It does on most phones.

Compaq Presario v2000 notebook reduced battery life


you may try:
1) check the battery alarm at windows power managment, to set 5-10% alarm level.
2) discharge the battery to the empty then charge longer time, you need monitoring how long it charged (see charge lights change), need to change new one if charging time much less then before(less then 10-20 minutes)..
3) plug-in AC adapter monitoring charging current,
this step you need a current meter to make a series connection in the circuite, the battery is over life cycle if the current less then 500mA.

Maybe it's battery. Try to use another maybe helps.
If not it's problem with software in it, what is connected with power point-battery and its showing low battery and switching off.
Second what you can do is to clean connection inside maybe it's stuck something and not giving the power in.
Good luck!
