Default Battery Life On 9330 Vs 8330?

Please Login to Remove!

Hello everyone, at first I thought it just may be my employees not charging their phones etc... However, I just acquired a 9330 myself and I also have an 8330 and noticed the 9330 was down to 1 cell way to soon.... :(


Is there a longer lasting battery I can buy? Or another question, is this one of those nicad batteries I heard about that has memory... meaning if you don't charge them for a large amount of time the first time... ?

Thanks for any help you can provide.

BBs all have Lithium batteries and they do not have "memories" as did the ni-cads. Keeping it on the charger and topped up is a good idea. Running it all the way down is bad.

Keep in mind that the 9330 is much more advanced device than the old 8300 series. There are more things that use battery power, more web apps that could be running in the background. Also, some OS' are not perfectly optimized for battery usage.

And this from our FAQ: Maximum Battery Life - BlackBerryFAQ
