Nokia e71 Battery life


I recently bought the Nokia e71 and installed push email from Nokia. Although I just get 5-10 Email per day, the battery holds only about a day with normal use.

What can I do to extend that?

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 ?

    Addit: Set the retrieval of emails to every to less frequently like every 2 hours or something. This can be done by accessing the settings of ur email account on the device.
    messsaging >>> email >>options >>> email settings >> Automatic retrieval >>> retrieval interval ( change the retrieval interval to every 2 hours)

The battery life with E71 will always be pretty poor (on any device) if you are using push over 3G but it varies and is driven as well by the 3G signal quality.

    So you can try these settings:
    1)Turned off the wifi scan 2)install dataviz roadsync. Set to always on

  • Priya darshan Aug 12, 2008

    You can turn off the 3g mode in the Tools, Setitings phone, dual mode menu I believe that the battery needs about 4 full charges to condition it.

  • Priya darshan Aug 12, 2008

    Actually the workaround is to use DataViz Roadsync rather than Mail for Exchange.

  • Priya darshan Aug 12, 2008

    There are 2:

    1. Mail for Exchange free download from Nokia but this one seems to be the cause of reduced batter life on the device.
    2. Dataviz Roadsync from Dataviz which they have a trial download but you pay.

    use licenced Activesync code and work in the same way as Activesync
    does on the Diamond and other WM devices ie scheduled download of mail
    or true push out as mail arrives on the Exchange Server. As with all
    push imlementations setting to have mail delivered as it arrives will
    reduce battery life a bit but this one, especially with Roadsync seems
    to last for days but that does depend on radio coverage/reception and
    the data volumes being transferred.


  • Priya darshan Aug 13, 2008


    I already gave you the configuration that needs to be made.Now one of my previous client who had a same problem like yours followed my solution and his battery life increased allot.And nokia push email is not good at all,please switch to Datawiz roadsync.Please go through my solution once again carefully i have mentioned everything.

    Please don't forget to accept the solution as fixya.

  • Priya darshan Aug 13, 2008

    Your Exchange user name and server settings are typically the same as
    the ones you use to log-on to your computer, Outlook or for Outlook Web
    Access (OWA). If you do not know these, please ask your IT
    administrator. To send a an e-mail to your IT department requesting the
    correct information.

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

Nokia E71, warm and poor battery...

when using applications my back cover gets hot too especially with nokia maps
so i think that is a normal thing also that could be why the back is metal to act like a heat sink?

Hi! My name is Steve ,and i want you know if its normaly to keep my battery working just 2 days,after then i must recharging

Hi Steve,

Well, it depends on the type of phone as to why your device is only lasting 2 days of battery power.

Your phone, the Nokia N70 is rated to last 3.5 hours of talk time, or 11 days of standby time, meaning if you are not using the phone that's how long the battery will last when the phone is on but the screen is off and you have minimal apps running on your phone.

Which means that you must be using your phone for more than just calling. For most people, they can barely get 2 days of battery real life on this phone, especially if you are a power user.

It is a color screen phone and that is one of the reasons why it uses up battery so much. The other reason is because it is connected to the internet as well.. that draws a lot of battery over just a regular flip phone. Nowadays, people using a smartphone can only get a day's worth of battery life out of their battery. Although, some smartphones can last 2-3 days or longer depending on battery size, how its software regulates drawing/using battery, and the technology inside the phone. The Nokia N70 has a 970 mAh battery compared to the new smartphones with as much as 3000 mAh batteries.

I have had my e71 for only one day, I set up my email to be pushed every hour and it worked at first, but now it will not retrieve them. When I try to do it manually, it tries to connect then comes up with...

Menu -> Communications->Messaging->Options ->Settings->Email->Your email ->Connections->incoming and outgoing. Try the Security port here. Should work.
