Are you tired of charging your Blackberry phone more often than you should really do or as mentioned by the manufacturer? Have you changed your battery several times already and yet the problem is still there? If you are in this category then do not feel alone, as there are thousands of Blackberry users who have the same complain, “Why does my phone die so quick even though I charge them for so long?”
Blackberry phones are put together in a very complex setup and the reason why Blackberry handhelds are so powerful, is because of this complexity. And to provide so much to users, the battery has to sacrifice its charge. However there are several ways that you can extend your battery life and reduce the power output of your Blackberry Handheld.
First and foremost, Blackberry users have an advantage of auto turning off/on their handheld. This procedures saves your battery. If you do not use your phone at night then might as well put it as auto off and keep it charging at night and in the morning the phone can automatically turn on as an alarm or just a regular schedule. And also don’t forget to charge your device in a regular fashion but to get the optimized result, let the battery juiced out first before charging again.
Clean connection can be proven to be energy efficient. Which means you can clean the metal connections that charges the battery maybe once or twice a month. That way the connection path stays clear and the phone battery gets smoother flow of electrons inside.
You can also use the energy saver for your screen which will reserve your battery. Try to keep the backlight low when you really don’t need brighter illumination, and set backlight to remain on for shorter period time, in which case shortest would be 10 seconds.
Wi-fi or WLAN or wireless local area network could cost your battery too if you leave it on in a non coverage area. Because as long as the connection remains on, the phone won’t stop trying to find a wireless signal and these trials will suck up your phone battery. Another quick tip for you would be to keep your connections off you are travelling in subway or any other type of underground commute where there is no network. This will save up some battery for you too.
In modern age, many people use vibration as their alert for phone calls or messages. But those who do not know, vibration costs more battery than ringtone or silent alert. So if you do not want people to know when you get an alert, keep your phone in silent or put a ringtone with minimum volume, this will save up some battery if you are a constant ‘texter’ or caller. Also try not to use long ringtones or multiple vibration alert or vibrate and ringtone at the same time. Just taking this tiny steps will save you a lot of energy.
In the 3G/4G network environment, data transfer and social networking is very common. And as Blackberry can do that very conveniently for the users, it does suck up a lot of battery. So my suggestions for you would be not to run apps which you are not using, close down an application manually rather than just going back to the home screen, delete unnecessary apps, files, messages. Also you can delete a message after sending them to your friends or family. If you want to send same message to many users, try not to put all of their names in the To field, rather use Cc and Bcc which will help you save up some battery too.
If you are using a Blackberry device with a Flash beside the camera, try not to use it when unnecessary and also change your browser options for animated graphics which will prevent your phone using RAM to load everything over and over again. If you have the screen/keypad lock, please use it and you could extend your battery by a lot.
Other thing that I would like to point out is to always monitor what apps you are downloading and if there is any side effect you are noticing afterwards. That way if you know some app is slowing your phone down and it is not that important for you either, you can just delete them.
