Re: Blackberry Q10 Battery %

bronze2013, it is quite normal for the battery to deplete quicker than normal the first 2-3 days after activation and setup due to the fact that your email, contacts, social accounts (facebook, twitter) and all are syncing data from the servers and that can take 24-48 hours to subside. So, after changing devices, and all newly setup again, you'll see much the same all over again. Same happens after upgrading an OS or loading a new OS to the device and beginning the account setups all over again.

Re: Blackberry Q10 Battery %

Went to the shop today and got my bbq10 replaced. It's working like a charm. No battery issues at all. Just my luck I got 2BBQ10 and both were found to be defective. I guess 3rd time is a CHARM. #lovingMyQ10. Thanks Jeff and Sanders for all your input.

Re: Blackberry Q10 Battery %

Well this is a shock. I disabled Bluetooth + NFC and I also downloaded an app called Battery Optimizer. I really don't know which one did the trick, but the battery life is vastly better now and comparable to my previous Bold 9900.

 

Before, my batter would go from 80% - 5% within a few short hours of minimal use. It still takes forever to charge using factory charger, but I guess there's nothing I can do about that.

 

I'd be somewhat surprised if Bluetooth and/or NFC caused such a huge strain on the battery?

Re: Blackberry Q10 Battery %

Gem I had done all d battery saving tips and it still was having battery issues with previous defected devices. The one I got today it took 1hr to fully charge. I did lots of browsing, emails, texting etc and when I checked my battery it was at 73%. I'd say that pretty good!

Re: Blackberry Q10 Battery %

I had turned off Bluetooth to see if that helped. I don't think it was that. It is back on now and battery still good.

I bought a 2a charger for the car and it charges pretty quick with that and I'm using my old blackberry charger to charge at home. (I'm not sure where the new one is) and that seems okay.

I would get a OEM charger made this device/battery at home, as well. The older BlackBerry device chargers are lower mAh and less output.

Re: Blackberry Q10 Battery %

I've deinstalled Blackberry Travel because I found that this was my "battery drainer". After unplug from the charger the BBTravel starts to work in background without any reson and use 10% of the power of the processor and than my CPU starts to generate 40% of use. After deinstalling it, everything goes to normal.

Good, but you could have also told BlackBerry Travel NOT to monitor all incoming emails. Kept the app, and then any travel email you can forward directly to Travel manually, which is what I do.

Re: Blackberry Q10 Battery %

Not sure if someone else had already figured this out. On the main screen, swipe up from the bottom and hold and you will see battery %.
