Battery Life and Crashing

I'm sick to death of my blackberry- I put it on charge all night and it lasts about 5 hours tops then turns itself off when it gets to 3/4 and when it reboots itself it shows orange battery light (nearly gone). It does this as well when i try and take a picture, it crashes, shuts itself off, reboots and i have NO battery life left.

Another problem i have is that the screen just goes black with an egg timer on it for hours before it finally sorts itself out. I desperately want to get rid of it but i have another year left on my contract what can i do?

Try this:

 

Leave the device to charge 2-3 hours, and then, still connected to the charging cable, remove the the battery from the device a few seconds and reinsert it.  Do this the next couple of days.

 

Often, even with a new battery, the 'on-device' battery will get off-sync with the actual battery charge. The battery could be charged at 100%, but the device "sees" only 50% charge.

 

Don't drain your battery daily to 5-15%, always top off when you can. Get an extra charger, even for 10 minutes charge during a day, that can be be the extra two hours you need. Draining the battery kills the battery faster.

Don't leave open applications running in the background. Close apps with the Menu key > Exit or Close.

Don't leave an open browser page running, close the browser the same way as above.

Make sure that Memory Cleaner is turned off. Go to Options > Security > Memory Cleaning and disable it.

Re: Battery Life and Crashing

It's also not unheard of to have a defective battery. You might try another battery.
