| | Battery juice - 7510 and 7520
I've been using both the Blackberry 7510 and the 7520. Nextel and BB claims that the 7520 lasts 169 hours standby (roughly over 7 days) and 152 minutes talk time (over 2 hours) for the 7520 which uses a little extra juice than the 7510.
For my brand new 7510, I use about 20-30 minutes max per day (phone + email + DC + calendar) and at times I don't use it at all (no DC, no browsing, no email, no phone). I'm lucky if I get over one and a half days worth of juice even with auto-shutoff at night.
Despite it all, I still can't seem to get enough juice to last the phone for more than a full day. Note that I have 'auto shutoff' at 1am which turns back on at 8:30am.
I just got my 7520 with a brand new battery. Charged it fully only when the batteries are out and so far, still the same results as my 7510.
Anyone else here with a standard abttery on their 7510 or 7520 that lasts over two full days of light usage?....or at least close to Nextel's/BB's claims?
