If the cell phone battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.
I have had exactly the same problem, and have replaced both the charger and the battery.
I think the problem lies in the contacts between the charger and the bayonet and the battery..
I put a couple of peices of folded paper behind the battery, making a very very snug fit.
then, (this is a bit fiddly) i carefully folded a slim peice of paper to wedge behind the charger pin and the back of the bayonet, so the pin is pushing against the front of the bayonet.
( to do this, position the paper over the pin and push into the socket at the same time.)
works like a treat :)
if you had exactly the same problem, it will be due to the charger wobbling around about the socket.
this ensures a tight fit and means it maintains contact all the time.
good luck, and i hope you haven't started to tear your hair out quite yet.
The battery drains so quickly because it maintains a constant connection to the network via a data uplink and downlink.Meaning its like continously talking on ur mobile phone. With Push email, the device is constantly connecting to the network which means its downloading data (which is ur email) on a regualr basis. And thus is draining the battery faster. Put it to the test!!! turn ur push email off and you will find that the battery will last for 3 days
The best solution is to buy an extra battery and keep it handy in your car.
P.S. The battery that comes with the E71 is 1100 mAH .. right ?
