Do you have a lot of applications installed on the device? Press and hold the BB menu button (to the left of the trackpad). This will bring up the application switcher and show you all the apps that are currently running/in use on your device. Could be you have some stuff running in the background causing your battery to drain. If you have things running that you aren't using, make sure you close them down properly within the application by pressing the BB menu button and choosing "Close" or "Exit."
You can also change some device settings, such as allowing your backlight to dim sooner.

How about trying a new battery?

Might be time for something a little more drastic, then, like a fresh OS install. You can do so following the instructions below:
Download an app to your PC called BBSAK (BlackBerry Swiss Army Knife). You will use this to wipe the OS from your device. You can get it here: www.bbsak.org
Download the most current OS for your device, which you can get here. https://swdownloads.blackberry.com/Downloads/entry
Connect your device to your PC and launch BBSAK. It will ask you for a password. If you don't have one set for your device, just click OK.
Choose the option to Wipe Device. When completed, you will be left with a white screen and an app error 507, which means the wipe was successful.
Close BBSAK and disconnect your device.
On your PC, navigate to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research in Motion\AppLoader. Delete the file at the bottom called vendor.xml.
Connect your device.
In that same folder as above, there's an executable file called Loader (has a little phone next to it). Double click on that and it will start loading your OS.

car charger is the worst thing to use for your batterie. your batterie life won`t last for a long time . if you don`t have a choice ,use it, but not as a main charger,just in case of emergency.. hope my english is good enough to be understand !
