Why is there no Battery backup in Curve 9360?

Hi everyone.

 

I am a user of Blackberry Curve 9360.

I don't get battery backup when my battery comes to an end.

 

My friend has Blackberry bold 9700. He has battery backup.

When his battery goes less than 5% battery, he restart (battery pull) his phone and he gets 15% battery extra. 

 

But when I tried to do that, nothing happens. Why is this so ? OR that battery backup thing is only available in Bold models?

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi Subh4n

 

Our BlackBerry Batteries are lithium ion which do not have memory , It attains a full charge within 2 to 3 hrs of charging.Also we should note that it should go below 10 %  ,Continous draining and using below  this level may actually reduce our BlackBerry battery life , Also what you friend is doing is not a good Idea , while reboot it takes a lot of battery resourses and rebooting at 5 % is not wise, his on device battery meter might be out of sync that is the reason he might be getting extra but I am sure his battery may show  drainage at faster rate .

 

There are no such battery backup for any Bold or any other BlackBerry Smartphone.On your BlackBerry 7 smartphone you can unable battery saving mode , set it to 20 % so that it may warn you when it reach that level which I think is a best practice to maximize our BlackBerry Battery.

 

In addition you can read this Article from Battery University which might help you How to Prolong Lithium-based Batteries
