Default Full charge time of 8800

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

I want to know how long it takes you to charge the battery of 8800 fully. I feel my phone has problem because it takes only 1h15 to charge full.

Wirelessly posted (8320 Curve)

When I had it I believe it took about 2.5 hours to charge. If you are seeing performance issues, I would get a new battery.

Check sedio for a new one. There may be coupons and such in the sponsor section.

How old is it? I find that the max capacity on mine has decreased substantially over the year. Ordering a new battery as we speak.

Just the normal course of a battery the longer it is in use the shorter its life span between charges.

They havent made one that wont deteriorate yet. :(

mine usually takes about 2 hrs to charge. I would think that your charge time would vary depending on how long you've had your unit for and how often you use your phone.

you could charge the battery of your blackberry environmentally friendly with a solar charger

The original battery that came with my phone would take about an hour to go from 2 bars to full bars. The new battery I just purchased takes roughly two hours to charge.

They did. It's called capacitor. However, they haven't made one small enough with sufficient power to run blackberry for decent amount of time.

I look foward to such day.
