Question about RIM BlackBerry Curve 8520 Smartphone

Only getting about 10 hours standby on Blackberry 8520

New Blackberry 8520. Standby time quoted as 17 days - I get 10 hours from a full charge!

Not battery related as I have switched battery with my other 8520.

Any ideas what could be the cause of this. Bluetooth is switched off and I have tried switching wi-fi off when not using

Hi one reason batterys dont last as long as they should is that when you charge them up they never achieve full charge and some cells will only take between 50 and 65 % charge, what you should now try is letting the battery go totally flat so that your phone wont even light up when you try switching it on keep doing this until the battery is totally dead, then give it a full recharge, you should now find it lasts a lot longer, you should aim to do this once a month to ensure you battery stays at its best, they dont tell you this when you buy the phone but it is common knowledge in the phone industry.

give it a try and you should be surprised what you find.

How ever you cant always believe what the phone adverts tell you because their are heavy duty batteries you can buy for certain phones, but if you think you have a good case of false advertisement then contact the phones makers and have a word with them they may even send you some free extras as they like to keep their customers happy,

You also got to remember that standby time means 17 days if the phone is not used and no one rings it say you take the sim card out then give it full charge, then with the sim card out see how long the battery lasts then this will give you some idea of the things that use the battery up such as alarms, people ringing, texts, even when you press a button this uses power to light the screen up so you can only rely on standby time if the phone is sitting their doing nothing.

i hope this as been some help to you

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

Motorla Slvr L7 Won't hold charge


It depends on how much talking your doing. The Slvr is known for its low talk-time battery power. My slvr would last about 3 to 4 days on a charge, unless i was talking on it a lot. sometimes i would be charging it every other day. So it really all depends on the talk-time. Invest in a car charger for sure.
