    Hi,

    I've had my T610 about 6 motnsh now and was wondering how long I should
    expect the battery to last. I charged my battery to full 2 days ago and
    its already almost fully discharged - its only been like this for a week or
    two. Should I go to Orange and ask for a new battery or is this the
    expected life of the battery (btw I don't have bluetooth or anything
    switched on and I havent made any use of the phone).

    Thanks,

    Joanne

    Your battery will do better if you do not always use it until it is low.
    Lithium batteries prefer to be kept mostly charged, and only drained on
    occasion. If you have been running it empty each time, I would not be
    surprised if a slight drop in capacity was noticed within 6 months.

    But 2 days is not that unusual for a phone battery with normal use, even the
    ones rated much longer than that. Battery ratings generally assume ideal
    conditions, which hardly ever occur, and certainly not for 200 hours
    straight.

    If you genuinely have not used the phone, or just made a few short calls
    then I would say there could well be a problem there. I would expect several
    days more life out of a T610 except in special circumstances.

    1) Make sure that the screen backlight switches off automatically
    (Settings/Display/Light/=>Automatic)
    2) I assume the battery is actually showing as fully charged on the screen
    after charging?
    3) If you are in an area with very low signal strength so the phone has to
    keep searching, this can affect the battery time

    Battery life will also be shorter if the handset is been moved a lot (ie in
    the car/train/bus etc) as it will keep logging onto nearest BTS. If its kept
    in the house it will only generally pole (check that the local BTS is still
    there) every 90 mins (network dependant)

    Re: T610 battery

    thanks for your replys - I hope it was just a temporary glich. Yesterday it
    was almost fully dicharged so I switched it off. About an hour later I
    switched it back on again and the battery power was back to about 3/4. I
    found this a bit strange as I've never had it falsly reporting what the
    battery power was before.

    Thanks,

    Joanne
