BlackBerry 9530 Battery Life Solved

I tried this several times and it seems to be the culprit. Charge your phone to 100% then DO NOT BRING IT ANY NEAR THE CASE HOLDER THAT CAME WITH THE PHONE..  It seems like it drains the battery life. I charged up to 100% Saturday night.. unplugged Sunday morning and used my phone until Tuesday afternoon on the same charge until 0% red flashing. I'm now recharging. Hope this observation helps Smiley Very Happy

Re: BlackBerry 9530 Battery Life Solved

my battery life when i first got the phone was horrible.

 

ive had it since dec 9th and the life has greatly improved!

 

i have the oem black leather horizontal holster and it works great, and puts the phone to sleep.

 

i bet i could go 3 days without a charge now!

Hi and welcome to the forums!

I use the clip holster OEM from Blackberry, and it works for me.

The device is set to lock and standby in the holster.

Here is a great article on battery tips by JSANDERS.

Thanks,

Re: BlackBerry 9530 Battery Life Solved

so I guess the battery takes some time to really work like its suppose to. I haven't had it any where near the oem holster it came with in days.

Hi Onionman,

I noticed in your post that you had run the battery to 0%, as noted in the article that's not

a required or desired condition for the new batteries. You may want to follow the charging

tips and retry the holster.

Thanks,

Re: BlackBerry 9530 Battery Life Solved

I used it until it went to flashing red then pluged it in right awayfor recharging. When I was using the original case/holder the battery wasn't even lasting a full day.

Re: BlackBerry 9530 Battery Life Solved

That's odd, my storm didn't come with a holster. I'm using a hard plastic AGF case and my battery barely lasts a day. Definitely won't if i'm using the net much. So you're saying that the battery life will improve?

Re: BlackBerry 9530 Battery Life Solved

I'm in the UK with Vodafone.

 

The battery life when I first received my Storm was measured in hours rather days, so I was rather alarmed. I then followed the hints on this forum. I charged the battery up for 30 hours, waited for it to run down, then another 24 hour charge, then about 18 ditto. That is three loooong charges.  I switched off the 3G and GPS. I only switch them back on when needed. I set the display to dim quickly and not be too bright on max. I ensure the phone is holstered when not in use. The battery now lasts two or three days, depending on what I am doing. I have a charger for the car, and from the mains. I charge the phone overnight when low or during the day from the car if I am driving.

 

This way battery life is not an issue and more than acceptable bearing in mind the intensive use these devices can get. I have no experience with other smartphones but from what I read elsewhere all powerful smartphones soak up power. I just hope that the Storm is no worse than most!
