Default At what percent of your battery does your BB die?

Please Login to Remove!

My BB always dies around 5%-10% & a few days ago, it died at 20%-30% .... Is that normal? At what percent does it usually die & automatically shut off?

You should NEVER let it get below 20% if at all possible. You can damage the Lithium battery if it gets that low consistently.

The more frequently you discharge lithium batteries to a deeper discharge level the fewer charge/discharge cycles you will get out of the battery. There is a very good article here.

Looking at the depth of discharge vs recharging cycles graph, the optimal level of discharge seems to be between 25% and 50%.
My other Blackberry is a PlayBook.
