I'm curious how others find their 8700 battery life. I'm seeing about 2.5 days (9am to 11pm on time) with moderate email use and low phone use. This is from a brand new battery. Is this similar to what others are seeing?

Also has anyone tried these suspicious sounding battery improvement apps?

Cheers.

2.5 days sounds pretty good.

For more tips on maintaining a good battery life, refer to this Maximum Battery Life - BlackBerryFAQ

2.5 days is about right, my wife gets about 2 days or a little less and is on it the entire 2 days.

Default Bluetooth Use = Less Battery Life

My observation is that once Bluetooth is turned on, then battery life drops fast. A full battery on my 8700c in the AM, followed by three conversations using a Parrot MiniKit Bluetooth during the day results in a battery at 30% by 5PM. I figure I have to charge it just about every day I use BT.
