Blackberry 8800 Kills Battery within 12 hrs. Replaced 2 batts.

I am trying to figure out why my 8800 is eating battery charge. I thought it may be a weak battery, so I purchased one, same thing again, thought maybe a bad battery, so i purchased another one.. still same problem.. Any help would be great.

There are a lot of little things that drain the battery. i have made adjustments to my phone and the battery lasts me 3-5 days depending on its usage.

1. turn off the LED coverage indicator(usually blinks green when u have signal, red when u dont)
2. change your back light timer to 10, 20, or 30 seconds.
3. do not overcharge the phone, it will lower the capacity level of the battery. only charge it when its low and take it off when its full.
4. check the reminder notifications from messages/voicemail/txt,etc. set it to one or two.
5. check to see if you are roaming or searching for service. the constant searching drains the battery.
6. check to see that u have exited the programs u were using. if u have installed maps,navigation, etc and just back out of the program without exiting the GPS is constantly updating your position.
Hope this helps.

Are you having issues at all with the trackball? I had an issue where mine wouldn't click and phone was eating through batteries. Turns out the keyboard was the problem

I have a picture of a battery with a line through it on my Blackberry 8800, what does that mean?


It means that the phone doesn't sense that there's a battery. Your battery might have a short in it. Hopefully it's just the battery and not a connector or wiring. I fix smartphones like this, usually a new battery does the trick.

Blackberry 8800 will not charge on wall charger


You need to find out if the problem is with your current AV charger - the battery or the phone.

Clean the battery and the metal connection with a dry cloth, and try to charge using a USB charger.
