BB Q10 Charging issues

Hi,

 

Two questions:

 

1. On my old BB bold, I would put on my alarm and shutdown my phone in case I needed to charge it. When I made the switch to BB Q10, I realized that was not possible since BB does not boot even with alarm on. Therefore for the last year I have been charging pretty much every other night while on bedside mode. This may have had a bad effect on my battery as it has been losing power a bit more quickly lately.

 

Was is the ideal way to charge your BB Q10 while using an alarm?

 

2. Fast foward to a couple nights ago where I go to bed charging my 25% phone when on bedside mode and wake up to a red battery icon and also red battery icon+yellow bolt. Turns out my blackberry charger (700mA) is messed up (tried different plugs). My phone is telling me to use a proper charger to do it faster and on top left my battery icon has 2 red lines on the left with a red exclamation point on the right.

 

I tried charging via USB on laptop and it charges perfectly (battery also seems to last longer but not 100% sure).

 

Is the problem simply the charger?

Please use plain text.

Set the alarm as you desire and place the device in Bedside Mode.  Settings > Bedside Mode, or from the Alarm app > Bedside Mode.

You can charge at night as long as you sleep, no problems. The charger cuts off at 100% and does not continue to charge so there is no harm in overcharging.

Sounds like a bad charger. This one, the bad one, is it the one which came with your Q10?

Just buy another. The OEM BlackBerry chargers are fairly inexpensive on Amazon.

 

This is a great charger for the Q10  BlackBerry 1.80A Micro USB Premium Folding Blade Home Travel Charger for BlackBerry Play Book (OTCBB...

Re: BB Q10 Charging issues

I went back home during the summer and may have mistakenly brought back my old bold charger on the road but I am 90% sure this was the charger that came with my Q10.

 

I did not know the Q10 preventend overcharging. Where did u read that?

Now you do know. I don't recall where i read it, but I do know it is true.

At 100% the charger cuts off.
