Default Battery Life For The Bold 9900

Please Login to Remove!

I read in a Sticky, either here or on the Crackberry Forum, that the best way to increase the battery life for the Bold 9900 is to top it off constantly, then after about 30 charges, to let it run down to 10%-15% and then fully charge it so that the meter would be accurate.

Well, I tried that, and it didn't exactly work. After about 30 top offs and then letting it run down to 10%, I fully charged it, and it would only charge to 90%. Then, a few days later, even though it showed good battery strength, I all of a sudden got long beep and a green blinking light that my battery was just about empty.

I then fully charged it and it is now lasting forever. Very strange. What are your thoughts on how to get good battery life?
