In the last day, I noticed the fully charged battery is draining in about 5 hours.
I fully charge the 8300 each night, with the unit turned off.
When I go to charge the drained battery, it shows a full recharge, yet it drains again within hours.
Does the 8300 eventually wear out its battery, requiring the purchase of a new one?
My BB is about 13 months old.
What's my move?
Seems like a rip, having to replace the battery after a little over a year.
I wonder if other people have had the same experience.
I haven't installed 3rd party software so I'm not overburdening the battery beyond normal use.
I've had mine for just over a year, the battery seems as strong as ever. I leave mine on all the time, I use the brightest screen lighting, I play mp3's on it over the speaker on a regular basis, and I can go a couple of days at least between charges.
Did this happen recently/suddenly or has it been like this for a while?
