Re: Extend your Torch battery life even longer!

Things that eat battery life in no particular order

3G uses two separate antenaes, 2G uses 1
Making calls
Use of GPS, BT, WiFi uses a transmitter and receiver
Screen light, brighter is more power used.
Long vibrate vs short
Long ring tone vs short
Apps running in backround
Camera light
Led flashing
Memory cleaning
Mutimedia playing, accesses memory areas or other connection

Re: Extend your Torch battery life even longer!

Can't you buy a bigger battery with a faster charger? Some companies offer a thicker battery and a diffrent back cover for their phones, Like Samsung! Does BlackBerry? :smileyhappy:

Re: Extend your Torch battery life even longer!

Yes there is a bigger battery that is availble by a 3rd party.

GPS apps will keep GPS on. Press and hold bb button down to what is running in background.

Re: Extend your Torch battery life even longer!

Hi knottyrope & others,

 

I have just changed my Bold 9700 to Torch 9800. Love it so much......unfortunately the battery life is shorter, which I have expected since the bundled battery (1300 mAH) has lower capacity than Bold's (1500 mAH)....

 

There's a 3rd party company here in M'sia selling this 1850 mAH battery for our Torch. My questions are:

 

* can we use this by replacing our original battery?

* is it technically safe to be used?

 

Please advise. Many thanks........

 

Cheers

KC

Hi KC, I'm gonna recommend not putting a non BB factory made larger battery unless knottyrope or one of the other gurus say differently. I've read other forum posts by seasoned members advising against aftermarket batteries because BBs are not made to handle them.

Hopefully, the gurus here can shed more light on non OEM batteries.

Re: Extend your Torch battery life even longer!

I also find that if I have certain social media apps running in the background, it just drains the battery within hours! Especially the social media apps which poll various services continously for updates.

Re: Extend your Torch battery life even longer!

All the talk about removing and stopping Apps....I removed "Smartphone V2" from apps and instantly my life has gone back to normal BUT what are the implications of removing that app??? Any ideas?
