Default Bad battery ?

Please Login to Remove!

It takes less than half an hour for the battery on my Storm to fully charge up, but then the charge doesn't last long. I suspect it may be on its way to go belly up.
Is such a short charging time normal ?
Thanks in advance

Sounds like a bad battery as you suspect.

My 9700 battery Is only 7 months old and it barely lasts 4 hours. Depending on useage. Li-ion BB RIM Batteries last 300-500 full charge cycles. And they last much longer if charged frequently. Draining the battery to 10-15% every time will get you 300 charge cycles approximately. OEM batteries are the only way to go, however. As aftermarket ones don't last near as long and can actually explode. The exception I know of is the Seidio Batteries. They are quite good, according to a collegue who has the extended life one for her 9700. She gets 12-14hrs with heavy useage.
