Default How often do you charge your phone?

Please Login to Remove!

I charge my phone almost every night, except on days when I haven't used my phone very much.

Is this normal? With my old phone, a SLVR, I was able to charge it every other night, and sometimes, every three nights.

Every evening, and often a top off charge while driving during the day, as well. This is common.

I get about 4-5 days of mild-moderate usage off a charge. I find it's much better with 4.2.1

Very nice. Good to know, thanks.

I've got to do my OS 4.2.1 update this week... I was traveling most all of last week and did not want to chance a glitch and not have the BB at ready. my usage is more moderate to heavy, so I probably still won't see 4-5 days.

I charge nightly. I could get away with everyother night but it's just easier to make it a nightly routine.

I went away Friday around noon, got back Monday early afternoon. By that time I was at about 48% remaining.
When I was using 4.1.0 it was about 2 days before it'd run dry.

Mine must be having issues cause I have 4.2.1 and was at about 30% at bedtime. Course I was constantly messaging or checking/writing email.

Could this be the cause of the diminished battery?

Nightly during the week, but then I leave it on Friday AM > Sunday PM to drain the battery a bit.

By the time I'm ready for bed my battery is about at 30%. So I charge everynight. I rarely have my phone die during the day, this has problem happened 3 time on me since I got it in the summer.

I charge every night. I'm always on-call, so I just plug it in next to the bed. On weekends I tend to read books on it, which drains the battery pretty quickly, so it has to be charged on weekends as well.

Nightly. It will run for much more than a day but why not top it off at night while it's sitting around and not doing anything anyway?

The 8700c that my cousin has is charged daily and I charge my 7290 every 2 days with an extended battery. I had to buy him an altoids charger to keep up when we go off-site as we cant charge in company vehicle(no lighter). But i think his would last longer if he didnt have yak-on and newsclip, so forth....
